I am looking forward to reading "Tabletop Wargames - A Designers' & Writers Handbook" by Rick Priestley and John Lambshead. It says it is written so you can read a chapter on its own or read through them in order. I suspect I will dip into the chapters individually and see how it goes.
Meanwhile on the wargaming front I fitted in an AWI game earlier this week. As is the norm for me now I let the dice to generate the terrain position. To help select the troops, each side divided up their army into three forces, then used playing cards to select two of the three forces which were able to be fielded in the tabletop. The third force presumable could not march to the guns in time. When setting up the table, the force with the most cannon or least light troops had to be in the second line.
At the moment I continue to try and settle on my Sci-Fi rules. Currently I am trying to modify the activation and combat rules as I am not totally happy with them. More about that progress later and on to an opportunity to show some pictures of Peter Laing's AWI miniatures in action.
