Plancenoit,1815. BUAs?

Post by PaulPatrick » Fri May 06, 2016 1:31 pm

Dear 'Comrades' & our R2E experts Barry/Toggy/Gerry,some advice please.

Summer project is French v Prussians at Plancenoit. I'm looking at 12 x 6 table but I'm really unsure how to handle the village as a BUA.

Barry mentioned possibly dividing the village into 4 individual BUAs & I'd welcome suggestions/advice on the mechanics of this.

I'm thinking of the Church plus 15 other buildings in the village.

Thanks. Paul.

Paul

A subject close to my heart, as I wrestle with a way to represent both Aspern & Essling in a realistic but playable way.

Need to have some radical thoughts & lots of playtests, some of which you'll undoubtedly be involved in, to get the feel "right".

More thoughts to come.

Agreed. I have seen other Plancenoit games on the web but I really want to stick with using R2E rule set. But at present I don't think a single BUA for Plancenoit would work.

This me to ponder. Tks. Paul

Best to do it in broken down sections. Plancenoit then was a lot smaller than it is today though - it is a sprawl of luxury villas grafted onto the original core around the church and green.

I think two perhaps 3 BUAs would be best. divided the village into 2 x 2B and make the church and yard a 2C

Many thanks Barry.

I'm currently gathering together appropriate buildings. The new Caliver Plancenoit Church model arrived this week.

Paul.
