Modern Periods

The Assault on Tomaszów Lubelski, 1939

The Second World War, Rapid Fire, 20mm This game was laid on by Bart, and apparently was based on a real battle fought in a place with an unpronounceable name. Well, Bart can pronounce it, but he’s Polish, so he should. Anyway, it was a game using Bart’s 20mm toys, using a rules set I

Gueuze, 1944

The  Second World War, Chain of Command, 28mm We hadn’t played a Second World War game in ages, and so with everyone else fresh out of ideas, Peter suggested a “Big CoC” Actually, it wasn’t that big a game, despite being played on an 8×4 foot table. It was a fictitious one, set somewhere near

The Defence of Imishli, 1919

The Back of Beyond, Setting the East Ablaze, 28mm  First of all, let me apologise for taking almost four weeks to post this. I had a fire in the flat, and it’s taken me that long to start getting back on track. I was pretty busy. Then I hit technical problems, such as where in

Turmoil in Tashkent 1919

The Back of Beyond, Setting the East Ablaze, 28mm By popular demand we staged another multi-player Back of Beyond game this week. It’s a “period” you can’t take too seriously, and this makes it an ideal pre-Christmas game. So, this one was set in the mean streets of Tashkent, and featured eight players – two

The Fight for San Nicolas, 1936

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week we were off to sunny Spain, and an early war clash between the Government security forces and a mixed bag of Falangists and rebel soldiers. This was a straightforward Chain of Command encounter game, using the Chain of Command Espana period variant to the main rules.

The Drive on Valdemoro, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week it was just Bart and I, so we opted for a simple and small Chain of Command game set in the Spanish Civil War. It was an attack and defend scenario, with the Republicans attacking and the Rebels on the defensive. The objective was the

The Road to Lvov, 1920

The Back of Beyond   Setting the East Ablaze  28mm Its been almost a year since our last “Back of Beyond” game. That’s pretty stupid, as every time I play the period I enjoy it so much I land up wondering why we don’t play it more often. Games are always hugely enjoyable, and are often

The Battle of Saint-Avold, 1870

Bismarck’s Wars, Bonnie Blue Flag, 10mm Michael wanted to play a Franco-Prussian game this week, and we agreed, on the proviso that he can’t choose the game for another fortnight! What started out as a small rules re-acquaintance game on a 6×4 foot table turned into a large multi-player affair, albeit still just a Corps-

The Jizzakh Affair, 1919

The Back of Beyond, Setting the East Ablaze, 28mm We’d been planning to stage a “Back of Beyond” game for some time, but for various reasons we had to postpone it. This week we finally got it together. The scenario was a weird one, as you’d expect from this “period”. The premise was that the

The Ponte Trave, Fano, 1944

The Second World War, Chain of Command, 28mm With other regulars bailing out to play other games, it was left to Bart and I to stage a game. We decided on a Second World War skirmish – something we hadn’t done for a while. Usually, Bart fields the Polish Armoured Division in Normandy, but this
