Re: Using The September War for COC

You think that's bad? At least you can win the individual battles even if you know you're going to lose the war. Try playing the Italians in the first few Operation Compass scenarios. They are designed to break the will of the Italian player, realistically softening up his morale for the rest of the...

Re: Poland 1939: The Narew Crossing

Hi. All the recent Poland 1939 games that I've posted have been taken from the September War scenario packs for IABSM (there are two). Each pack has a number of mini-campaigns in it, and often the scenarios within the mini-campaign are connected in some way, usually to do with what troops are availa...

Poland 1939: The Narew Crossing

It was back to Poland for our latest game of I Ain’t Been Shot, Mum and an extraordinarily exciting encounter that went right down to the wire. On September 7th 1939, reconnaissance units from one of the Panzer Divisions of General Nikolaus von Falkenhorst’s XXI Army Corps captured Wizna after Polis...

(Space) Dwarves vs Xar in 15mm

As my recent painting has been almost wholly focused on clearing all the sci-fi dwarves from my lead mountain, I thought it was only right and proper to get them onto the table again for my next game of Quadrant 13. It would also be a good opportunity to give the Xar (six-legged “critters” from GZG)...

IABSM AAR: Grudziadze

Our last game of IABSM was set in the Tuchole Forest in Poland, right at the beginning of the war. Today’s battle would directly follow on from that encounter, and represent the stalwart Polish defense of Grudziadz. Both scenarios were taken from The September War, Part One, one of the TooFatLardies...

IABSM AAR: The Tuchole Forest

Played a great game of I Ain't Been Shot, Mum! at the weekend: scenario #08 from the first September War scenario pack covering the invasion of Poland in 1939, The Tuchole Forest. The battle, set in the Polish Corridor, was all about territory and objectives, and proved a very different kettle of fi...

Re: EW Handbook on pre-order

Yes: technically speaking it is not an "Early War" handbook but a "Blitzkrieg 1940" handbook i.e. France and the Low Countries. Rich and I worked on the CoC (Rich) and IABSM (me) Blitzkrieg 1940 handbooks at the same time, exchanging notes and sources etc. It soon became obvious that a campaign appr...

Action at the Factory (Anzio)

Cracking game of I Ain't Been Shot, Mum fought this weekend just gone.
