Late War WWI Game

We played a WWI game set in 1918 using If the Lord Spares Us rules. This was our first try with late war, and it general worked!

The table is bit pale as I used a desert mat to give a brown colour rather than my normal green one. The overall look is very brown. Which whilst OK for some parts of WWI is also a bit visually unappealing.


Early on in the game, the British are attacking from the bottom right, some of their troops are still on Blinds, one infantry battalion supported by Mark V tanks advances


End game, the British attack has stalled. They have managed to take the village on the far side. But in the middle have lost a full battalion, and its replacement is taking heavy casualties. On the near side the British are engaged in the fire fight with the defenders in the trench.
The Germans have lost approx 2 coys of defenders from the first trench line.

The scenario was very challenging for the British. There were too many defenders, and they had too much ground to cover. The British tanks proved much slower than the infantry, mainly as the infantry were able to advance rapidly on blinds at the start of the game.

As always ITLSU gives a good game - and this one really illustrated the problems of attacking strong defences.


One of the German battalions, 9 Infantry, 3 HMG, minewerfer, MG08 and HQ
There were two of these on the table, with 3 x 77mm field guns. And another in reserve.

Suitably muddy Thumbs up Applause Thumbs up

Definitely a tough nut to crack I don't want to see

Interesting to hear that ITLSU worked well for late war, what amendments did you make?

Thanks Paul

I donít think we really made any, the core rules have tanks and trenches.

I decided that MG08 where 2dice MGs when firing. Gave the British +1 dice for Lewis guns per company.
Half way through we up the Whippets to 3d Average for movement (rather than 2dAv). Each tank was on its own card.

Germans had the option to deploy as companies, but effectively deployed as battalions - but again I think that is implicit in the rules - certainly is in some of the scenarios. I think having the Germans activate as companies would have been a good idea.

Having them activate by companies would 'break up' the German defense a little more, hopefully allowing some of the British to make a bit more ground

That's a nice looking game and as you say, quite a tough ask for the Brits.

Thanks both

Yes it was, in scale terms they had a mile to cover to get to the first German trench line. Iíd set things up fairly quickly, and had gone with what looked OK, without really thinking about the ranges and moves within the game.
