It's been a week since we went on holiday and I have yet to pick up a brush, which is shameful but excused by the lovely weather we've been having, except for the last couple of days. We're now off camping for a few days in the rain, so nothing is going to get started until the end of the week at the earliest. Instead, I thought I'd start working on a scenario for the Battle of Jasmund / Rugen, to use with the 1/2400th scale Tumbling Dice ships. I have these with me so could run a playtest with the unpainted models (the horror!), when I get back from camping in the Ile de Crozon.
It's a relatively simple scenario which primarily involves the Prussians running away in various different directions but there is definite scope for some 'counter factual' outcomes if the Danish and Prussian commanders decide to do things differently. The rules are Long Face Games fast play Broadside and Ram, so ideal for this sort of thing, although I may well write the scenario to allow individual ships or gunboat flotillas to have some independent control, rather than just having an overall squadron commander for each side.
