For any other "Washington's Crossing" enthusiasts out there, about 5 years ago I created a player aid in the form of an Excel workbook that eliminates the need for Leader Charts and dramatically speeds combat calculation times. The following page explains what the utility does and provides a link to download the Excel file:
I'm finally working on the mobile web version of this utility so you can run it on your iPhone or Android, which will make it a lot more practical.
Eric, the game I'm working on, at regimental scale and with 150/hex, only focuses on the actions at Matthew's and Henry's hills, and so doesn't cover the overall battle and its possibilities. The usual problem with the 'Four Corners' of any map design - the desired area to be covered, the number of map sheets allowed, the size of the actual hexes, and the map scale. All are slightly 'pushable', but only slightly... ;-)
Just got the new map with Poland Defiant for Stonewall's Sword. Worth the $15 for it!
Am definitely going to look forward to 1st Bull Run using the Blind Swords system, particularly since it will come with yet another Rick Barber map! :-) This will probably cause me to put my old AH title, Bull Run, up for auction next PrezCon....
Rick, I also liked your artwork in "Gettysburg: The Wheatfield", which was designed by a friend, Hermann Luttmann. Best of luck with "1st Bull Run".
I'm a big fan of "Washington's Crossing". I believe there were supposed to be additional games in that series. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Spent the afternoon sizing up maps and a blank grid to get started mapping out 1st Bull Run for Revolution's Blind Swords system.
