Regimental Fire and Fury

Had a great game of Regimental. Fire and Fury yesterday. Cameron Farrow brought over his brand new Union soldiers to battle against my Confedarate army. We played the battle of Little Round Top a scenario based upon that presented in the main RFF rulebook.

We played 6 turns each and whilst I as the Rebels had captured some of the ground required by the scenario Union re-inforcements arrived and would have made my gains very tenuous. We called the game a draw due to time limits and to be truthfull the damned heat in my garage which was in the late 30s. 






Overview of the table at the start of the battle. 




Cams heavy casualty marker which did come into use.

Great game and do love how the game system plays. Mark Piper and I are in the process of doing the AWI in 40mm using the variant of these rules

FOW Normandy 20mm

Had another great 20mm WWII FOW game with Mark Piper last Thursday. British armour and infantry had to push through a small dug in German force. I ( Germans) had 4 platoons on the tanker with 5 others off board ready to come on from the third turn. I rolled badly of course and only got 2 platoons of tanks on the sixth turn. Mark advanced and captured the objectives by the start of turn 6 gaining victory for the Brits.

Table before the game


British forces waiting to be deployed

German forces but only 6 out of 9 platoons were used due to bad rolls


Game pictures. I hate those Churchill Crocodiles


German infantry burned by the Churchill Crocodiles, not sure I agree with the FOW one shot flamethrower rule.


Mark's Shermans race for the objectives ignoring the surrounding German forces and winning the game. We played the German turn and saw two tank platoons come on and wipe out the last British armour near the objectives.
