A version of Morschauser's rules for the late 19th century

Although they are not quite aimed at purely colonial conflicts, I have begun work on a version of my adaptation of Morschauser's 'Modern' Period Wargames Rules for the latter part of the 19th century.

I will adding a draft of these rules to my Wargaming Miscellany blog later today. Once I have play-tested them I will adapted them to include colonial armies as well.

Happy New Year, Bob! I look forward giving a look to your latest effort.

With a bit of luck they should be uploaded to my blog this morning. I am behind schedule as I am currently trying to set up a new computer as well as everything else that I have to do.

At present it is very similar to the 'Modern' period adaptation of Morschauser's rules I have written, but there are still things that will need to be worked on, hence the need for play-testing.

All the best,

Hi Bob, Happy New Year! I cant wait to see the next version of the Morschauser experiment. Have you considered using hexed game boards for this bearing in mind the amount of Hexon you own?

And a Happy New Year to you to!

I had hoped to get the draft of these rules (for squares, not hexes - that change may come later!) uploaded today ... but I decided to replace my aging PC with a newer one whilst prices were low after Christmas ... and it is taking all my time to set it up.

At present I cannot get a proper connection to the Internet via the home network I have, and I cannot trace the reason why this is happening. With a bit of luck it should be solved tomorrow and then normal blogging service will be resumed.

All the best,
