Not quite there yet: A scrapped version of the "Out of Control" damage card.
Today's update is one I fear will be quite dreary for anyone but myself. Having started to prep the remaining Dorniers, I finally gave in to that nagging voice which has kept reminding me that I do in fact have everything I need to start playing BtH2, at the least when it comes to the miniatures. The flight stands are ready, game mat received and Hurricanes, Spitfires and Bf109Es are painted. All that remains is to finish revising the BtH2 rules and game aids.
The revision of the BtH2 rules is something I do with the intention of simplifying and speeding up gameplay. The "working title" for the project is Bag the Hun 2 Lite: Battle of Britain (BtH2 Lite: BoB in tags from now on) and contains simplified and streamlined tables, quick reference sheets and a dedicated card deck, as well as separate reference cards for damage effects. Most of the cards and game aids will be suitable for posting, although I will not post the quick reference sheets - they contain a condensed reference version of the game rules, which is hardly proper to distribute.
Anyway, last night I sat down and spent a while going over which elements were complete and which were missing before my revised BtH2 rules could be used to play. The goal is now to get gaming ASAP!
