Work is going well on combining my existing campaign maps with the Murat series of wargame maps. The aim is to have a series of five maps for each campaign phase, all of which will be based on the same information.
The five maps will be
Map One - Europe with each grid square being a campaign area
Map Two - Germany or Spain with each square being one days march
Map Three - Campaign area similar to map two but with more detail
Map Four – Campaign phase area showing all terrain detail
Map Five – Wargame map to transfer battles from campaign to wargames table
This is a combination of my original map of Spain and the Murat map of Portugal and Spain. The grid is my original one and each square is one days march. The towns are those shown on Murat. Note that quite a few squares are not named.
This is the campaign area for the Wellington v Soult part of the 1813 campaign. All squares now have a named town. The larger cities are each a campaign phase. However some compromise will be required because they are not evenly spaced as they were on my original map.
The next stage is to produce a strategic map for the next phase of the campaign in Northern Spain. This will be show a section of North Spain, but with more detail
The final stage will be to produce a wargames map. This will have a grid which shows the exact terrain which will be used on the wargames table.
