As with all gamers, projects come and go. Models you were thinking of moving on get a new lease of life due to a comment in the Hobby or a movie on TV. This will hopefully be my record of my best endeavours not to start anything new until I have at least completed 75% of what I already have....as if that is ever going to happen ;)
Air Combat - Downtown - D2 Beginnings Planning Pt 1
Part of the downsize includes actually gaming with some of the stuff I have left with more. As I am keeping my 1/600th aircraft I have decided to give Downtown a bit of a dusting off and do some more work on the solo rules. I have an online game using Vassal next week and am going to use that for ideas and trying out somethings (ie I can play out how I am going to use the DRV and then see if my solo ideas come up with the same sort of options.
For now however this is the planning map for D2. I have placed AAA Markers on all the AAA Barrage hexes and then selected the AAA Range option. Two additional AAA hexes are placed as a result of the 4 AAA Points I have as the DRV, one of these goes on Vu Cha (which is a valid placement using the standard solo rules) and the other to the North East to plug the hole from Phantom Ridge. I am keeping the other two AAA Points hidden at this time (as my opponent reads my blog :) )
Oops. Planning map had my hidden AAA showing. New map added
I haven't chosen the MiGs from the MAP pool yet as that happens after I roll for the Raid Warning info. As D2 only uses the USN entry hexes I haven't bothered populating the Western portion of the map (the bottom bit) yet, but will do.
