New Maps for 1813 Campaign


Strategic Map of Southern Germany

Busy week working on the maps for the next phase of my 1813 campaign, which will be set in the south of Germany.

This is the strategic map which shows the three tactical areas in which the Danube phase will take place.   Each map covers an area of 15 miles, which is one days march in the campaign.

The three areas outlined in white are the tactical areas.  

One French and one Austrian corps will be allocated to each tactical area

Tactical Map of northern corps area

Each square covers an area of 5 miles.   Each square can be represented on the wargames table by one of my 2x2 foot scenic squares.  

Each corps has two divisions and only one division is allowed in each square.

Landau is the major city on this map and will be the campaign objective for both sides.

Passau is the major city on this map and will be the campaign objective for both sides

Salzburg is the major city on this map and will be the campaign objective for both sides

The terrain is very different on each of the three campaign areas.   The southern area is very hilly and will prove a particular challenge.

Each player will be a corps commander, and will be sent a copy of the strategic map and one of his own tactical area.

Each map has two reference numbers.   The one on the left is for map movement.  The one on the right indicates which scenic square to use.

When a battle is declared I make up the table with nine squares and the centre one is the point of impact.
