Wellesley looks from a commanding height, well a ridge at least  and prepares his men for battle. These are all at start locations for forces.

Map overview below. The Goal of this scenario is to generate a victory via capture of the hex almost immediately behind Wellesley (2 hexes), which you may see is faintly marked. This would then trigger release of other forces and the next scenario.

So play sequence is a big deal here. A little Turn Sequence reminder for all or most of the steps seemed in order.. As we play we can edit and see what is really needed, and update for elements we become caught on.  here is a little snap shot of part of it.

  1. I have this set up too on VASSAL since I do not have room for both maps. I like the system but wish I had more space since I’m not too keen on wargames on my computer. I also see I goofed on my setup!

  2. if you want to share your vassal log with me I’d be happy to look at it. It might be me! My map has the wrong symbols on it. So I am going by the VASSAL module map printouts…..sigh

Hey!! At least say something! ;)
