The rules can be used for any campaign. But I think it will be easier to understand the thought process behind them if you have an idea of how my 1813 campaign works.
The campaign has been designed to provide interesting wargames using all of our model soldiers and model scenery.
There are two campaign strategic maps, one of
Germany and one of . These maps are based on the AA Road Atlas of Spain Europe. Each grid square on the map is an area of 20 miles. This is also one days march for each corps.
There are three French armies in
. One fighting Prussians in the north. A second fighting Russians in the centre. A third fighting Austrians in the south. Germany
There are two French armies in
. One fighting Spanish in the east. One fighting the British in the west. Spain
There are three maps for each campaign. I will only show the Spanish maps to illustrate what they look like.
First is the overall strategic map. The map has been copied from the AA Atlas of
Europe. However most of it has been changed to make it more of a campaign map, and less of a road map. The geographical features such as rivers and towns are correct. The mountain ranges are little more than a guess. The roads in red are the main supply routes. They run between major cities. The yellow are secondary roads. They connect towns and villages within each region. This is the master map from which all other maps are copied.
The second is a more detailed map for the strategic movement. This one is used for the
campaign. It covers an area of 360 by 260 miles between Burgos Madrid and and is used for the corps daily movement. Bayonne
The third map covers an area 80 by 60 miles. This is the area which will be transferred to the tactical map. I have not yet made the tactical map in ProFantasy. I will use a hand drawn one from a previous campaign to illustrate.
This is a hand drawn map which I used for the
campaign. Each square on the previous map has been converted to 3x3 squares on this map. Each one is scenery square for my wargames table. Each square is numbered for ease of identification. Three of these squares would be one days march. The nine squares inside the frame is the area to be transferred to the wargames table. Tarragona
The campaign is the background to the wargame. It provides a reason for each game, and also an endless supply of games without too much effort.
