Chain of Command

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 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

La Muralla, 1938

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm I found my self in Orkney this week, and so I went along to the local club, where the guys were playing a Chain of Command game set during the Spanish Civil War. Forewarned about this, I threw a box of lead and scenery into the car

The Advance on Courcelles, 1918

The Great War, Chain of Command, 28mm When we’re at a loss about what else to do we tend to opt for hain of Command (or CoC for short). This time we played a game set in the Great War, using the amendments posted in some Too Fat Lardy special. We call this version Muddy CoC. In

Pueblo Tranquilo, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week we were off to sunny Spain. Quite a few people weren’t at the club (it’s the Edinburgh Festival), so this week it was just Peter and I, playing a small Spanish Civil War game on a 6×4 foot table. It was a “Patrol” scenario, with

Brettevillette, 1944

The Second World War, Chain of Command, 28mm Last week we all agreed to take along our Second World War toys, as we hadn’t played that period for a while. It used to be a leading wargames staple, but in the last year or so other periods have overtaken it. This was going to be

Fleury-La-Rivière, 1918

The Great War, Chain of Command, 28mm This is actually a report of two games rather than one. Rather, on Thursday night we had a practice game, and managed to work out what not to do. Then, on the Saturday, we ran this as a participation game at Deep Fried Lard 2017, the small annual

Châtillon-sur-Marne, 1918

The Great War, Chain of Command, 28mm This was a strange night. First of all, it was a Tuesday rather than a Thursday, as the building is being used for local council elections next week. That’s so we can elect another bunch of boobies in Edinburgh, who’ll blow yet more money on their white elephant

Mazières, Normandy, 1944

The Second World War, Chain of Command, 28mm Nothing says Christmas like an MG34. That seemed to be the tag line for this game, set in Normandy in August 1944. Motorised infantry of the 1st Polish Armoured Division were advancing south from Caen to Falaise, and having secured the open ground around St. Sylvain and
