Hill 162 grimly defended by the red naval infantry and battery

We set this up last night for a Saturday try – this will be a first of three games linked in a mini- campaign. Polish on the offensive after Warsaw –

Game 1: pushing the reds off a key piece of terrain(hill 162) on their way toward a bridgehead. Two objectives – clear the hill, clear the town and the road onward.

Game 2: assault to seize the bridge

Game 3: Red counterattack on the bridgehead.

Here’s the table set for game 1:

We will let you know how things turn out….


Game played – as the Bolshevik commander I lost soundly. Our first pass at WW1 operational rules was mostly a combo of Contemptible Little Armies for movement, fire mechanics and morale, with card activation from Too Fat Lardies pre0
