A quick armored battle
Finally got around to posting this. It should have come sooner. The next one will come sooner. We decided to fight a quick all-armored battle to save a little time. The scenario was Hasty Attack, where the defender (me) has delayed and scattered reserves. I...

A Saga of a Duel
I decided to play some Saga for you this week. The game is a little shorter, but then I can't play 5- or 6- hour games every week, right? I took Vikings while Dave took Anglo-Danes. We both took pretty typical forces, ignoring lighter levy troops in favor o...

The Bocage
This week we set up a tale with an actual theme. It was, as you may be able to tell, bocage. In light of the terrain density of the table, we both took infantry. Dave had: 3 platoons of infantry Weapons platoon--MGs and mortars attached out 80mm mortar plat...

Mixing it Up
...in the cauldron. Pun intended. My apologies. But really, Dave and I did decide to mix it up. We both took tank armies--a definite rarity for him--but we also did something more extreme: I took Americans and he took Germans. My list was from Blood, Guts, ...

Recapturing Bykhov
...yes. It is now a theme to fight over territories starting with B 2 or more times. I kind of need to, though, because otherwise my cites Orsha and Mogilev are toast, being out of supply and bereft of good firestorm troops. I saw Dave occupying the area wi...

Across the Streets of Stalingrad
So I haven't been doing a lot of gaming this summer (obviously) but I did come up with this short post for your viewing enjoyment. This is a 25mm skirmish game across some homemade Stalingrad terrain. The rules are also homegrown. My father and I took the S...

Tarawa
Man, has it been a long time. Like, 11 months. My course load this year was punishing, and I didn't get a whole lot of time to play, much less write about it. Perhaps a weak excuse, but it's the truth. Anyway, I do finally have a post for you, detailing a g...

Defense of Bykhov
Now that I have all my good firestorm troops in Berezino instead of Bykhov, Dave is attacking me in Bykhov to cut off supplies to Mogilev and Orsha. We're playing a free-for all in somewhat clearer terrain. He's attacking my infantry with tanks! While an a...
