British Trench Raid 1916

cross post of something I found on TMP. From the war diaries of the 2nd Bn, Middlesex Regt, May 1916. The detail is amazing!

French Military Records

The Interesting stuff you stumble across on the internet... Seems to be digital copies of the French Army operations logbook of The Corps Expéditionnaire d'Orient in the Dardanelles campaign. A lot more on this site too. A rich resource. I was looking for names for my French Big men. https://www.mem...

Re: Through the Mud and the Blood Video Battle report

great battle reports. Advancing in the open without a artillery barrage is hard. The "Take Cover" action is your friend - in effect a low crawl with 1 d6 and use the other die to aquire light cover. At least until everyone is in position to provide covering fire and the trench assaulters c...

Re: KMH2

just some thoughts on rules changes Fires - they don't seem to happen very often, but historically were a real danger especially at point blank range due to burning wads from the guns. I would add to the special damage Hull chart at 3, 4 & 5 a 50% chance of Fire if at point blank. There should a...

Re: 1:300 ships

Interesting. Hadn't considered going up in scale for the really small boats. Probably also useful for mediterranean actions involving gunboats, xebecs and Algerian galleys and the like. 1/1200 small boats are comically small, like you need tweezers!

Re: Great War CoC

A dedicated set of rules for WW1 would be great. Using the CoC M&B mashup from the Special is difficult at times & requires a lot of head scratching to figure how some things work. It also would make me finish painting those French...

Re: Franco-Prussian War

For throwing around divisions & corps in FPW you want Big Bloody Battles (BBB). A greatly streamlined version of Fire & Fury that uses a 2d6 bellcurve for results instead of F&F straight D10. I recommend it!

Retreating batteries not due to melee or charge

What do batteries retreating do due to a failed discipline test not from melee or charget? In this case because of a double six by skirmishers? Do they limber and retreat, or just prolong back?

are Dispersed Brigades still faltering?

are Dispersed Brigades still faltering even after leaving the table? I know you lose a ADC, but does the dispersed brigade still count as faltering every turn requiring an ADC attachment to the divisional commander for the rest of the game?
