So, sorry dear readers!
In the meanwhile, I ordered at Matthias Manske a new type of officer, a sort of messenger, called "Flügel-Adjutant", which is a staff officer who carry the newest general´s orders.
Manske modelled this figure and placed it on a range of possible horses.
The background of this request is a new change of rules we plan for our wargame: inspired by the fantastic wargame of The Perfect Captain, where is a complete instruction manual of a complex and exciting game, we also chose to introduce the new rule of a messenger in our wargame.
This messenger should carry a new order to the regiments positioned afar from the core, using the normal rule of the cavalry´s speed. So regiments faced to a skirmish can further not be controled by the player´s decision, but only seconding a character´s card, adapted to the officer´s temperament. Only if the messenger can bring a new order directly to this regiment, its officer can go in a manoeuvre concerning the general´s order.
We hope to improve our wargame; I will post more news about it after our first tests the next weeks.
This time, the swedish command is a gift for my brother Felix who is collecting and wargaming the swedish army. I wasn´t sure about the correct swedish uniforms and couldn´t find good sources about it. Ther was sthg. in Vinkhuizen, but I cannot tell if this the actual dress of the 1750´s.
Soon, I will let follow more!
