Hexagons and Blocks

Inspired by David Crook's blog and his many excellent Portable Wargame battle reports my latest web page is for a hex based game using block style units.

The controls work in the same way as the pre-dreadnought game; double click on a unit to summon the control-thingy that allows you to change facing or edit the unit's label. You can keep track of a unit's strength either by using the markers, which count down on a double-click, as in the screen shot,or by label editing.

ECW Upgrade & Odds

I've modified some of the units in the ECW version of the Portable Wargame Electronic Version. The cavalry units can now be used to represent 'trotters and 'gallopers' in Stephen Page's ECW rules. I've added a few extra comedy units and terrain pieces for 'hoisted by your own petard' siege assault type actions.

I've carried out a 'Winston Smith' style edit on the 'Electronic Portable Wargame at Sea' post so that the link now points to Bob Cordery's renamed rules.

I found out that the  'load game' button on all the pages didn't work in Internet Explorer, so I've fixed that.
