I have tried running campaigns before and they have all met with a ignominious end all dying of apathy - this time it will be different ! ( I hope ) . It is going to be a Franco- Prussian War campaign using the Grant campaign rules and the Featherstone rules for table top battles . My wargaming colleagues 'A' and 'B' have unknowingly volunteered to be the Prussians and French , the Prussians setting off from the Right hand side of the map and the French the Left .(click on map to enlarge) .
The forces and their objectives have been sent to the players and I hopefully will report back as the campaign unfolds . Map moves are kept secret from the players till they enter a square ( ie G4) then the action will unfold on the table top . I envisage with the interruptions of 'real life' this will be a longish term project but have always been a bit jealous of those 'OS' gamers who seemed to run campaigns with no problems at all and with modern technology - emails texts etc this should prove a bit easier (crosses fingers) .
Let's hope it doesn't turn into the above ! .
