1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - Bolt Action
2) What armies were confronted? - Germans v US
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - Yes
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - many games under my belt
5) How many players were in the game? - one (solo)

Inspired by and very loosely set in the Ardenne Dec 44. I have no snow terrain so this was fought out over spring/summer terrain but counting all areas off road as rough going. The US were defending the outskirts of a village with a reduced platoon and three Shermans. The Germans wer attacking along two roads with a mixed Kampfgruppe of Grenadiers and FJR mounted in half tracks with a Stummel, a Panther and a PzIV in support.

The Americans managed to bottle neck the German advance and immobilised the PzIV before the Germans were able to rally and gradually reduce the US advance positions with a series of well coordinated fire plans. Once this outer ring was penetrated the Panther rolled into the village supported by the remaining infantry and quickly despatched all three Shermans securing a win for the Germans.

1) What ruleset did you use in your last game?  Volley &a Bayonet - Wing scale
2) What armies were confronted?  British v Rebels Patriots
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset?  Yes
4) Was this your first time using this ruleset?  Second weekend in a row Smiley
5) How many players were in the game?  3 British v 2 Americans

Last week to belatedly mark the 4thJuly we played a game based on British attack on the Birmingham Meeting House during the battle of Brandywine, September 1777. We substituted some of my southern forces for the historic units. We had such a good time that we played again this week, the rebels patriots wanted to try a more forward defence, defending the edge of the hills rather than fighting on the plateau  Undecided

The British decided to fight on the right and screen their centre with the large brigade while the brigade of Guards and the other brigade attempted an outflanking move on the right. The artillery originally attached to the Guards deployed on the left directly under the command of Lord Cornwallis. All the British brigades turned up on time this game Smiley

The Patriots pushed forward from the east west road reaching the fields on the edge of the plateau. Due to complexity of command some of the Militia were left behind. The Continentals on the Patriots right boldly advanced in an attempt to outflank the unsupported British guns. Seeing Cornwallis' plight the 63rd Foot and the 1st/71st Highlanders swung left while the 7th Fusiliers moved up to support the skirmishing converged light infantry.

The Continentals choose to charge in rather than face heavy fire followed by a charge including Highlanders, it did not go well I don't want to see The right wing of the highlanders suffered heavily from the fire of the other Continentals on the hill. The British counter charge swept away the remaining Continentals from the Patriots right.

The remaining Continentals  on the hill were now assailed from both flanks while the Militia tried to form a new flank on the left but were no match for the British Guards.

The entire battle took place in about one sixth of the battle field. A good time was had by all, particularly the British Wink

1) What ruleset do you use in your last game? - Warband
2) What armies were confronted? - Barbarian vs Undead vs Dragon Men
3) Did you feel comfortable with the ruleset? - utterly
4) and... was this the first time you used this ruleset? - nope
5) How many players were in the game? - three plus Jarkko's son

We went for 'Grudge Match' and then got completely scuppered by Mark who laid down a forked river and a road system that made Milton Keynes look simple!
Basically the table split into thirds, and because Mark bottlednecked both of us, we were in trouble from the start.
I broke, Jarkko and son had lost 197/250, and Mark had only lost 87 points!

Great game, many giggles, full and comprehensive battle report on my blog tomorrow!  Cool sleep time now! 😴
