The bomber going after the DR1 was......brave....it would have been interesting.

Re: AAR: Chain of Command at Cold Steel, 15 Feb 14

The dice favored the Brits, especially early. They got two sections and a 2" out an in position to continuously hammer away at the trench line. What I should have done is take the SMG squad out of the trench and assaulted the wood line in close combat where their short-range firepower would hav...

Re: AAR: Algernon Pulls It Off (Again) at Cold Steel, 15 Feb

Two regrets: Not starting the bombers closer to the center and shooting down Lothar outside of what the rules said.

There's playtest feedback from players that will go to the group to help shape the final set.

My only regret: table too big. We played on a 6x6 not a 4x6 and I believe that allowed the Brits too much room to maneuver.

AAR: Algernon Pulls It Off (Again) at Cold Steel, 15 Feb 14

AAR: Chain of Command at Cold Steel, 15 Feb 14

Bruce's Cold Steel was a success, good games presented and lots o' players. And my little bit was a game of Chain of Command, British regulars attacking a German Heer platoon in Belgium in October 1944. OOBs can be seen here . The table looked like this to start, you see the Heer patrol markers on t...

Chain Of Command: On The Sharp End

Published today, it's the campaign supplement to the main rules. Weighing in at 47 pages (PDF only) at six pound GBP, it's crammed with value. There's three levels of detail you can engage in: almost none, less than 30 minutes prep time/post time for record keeping, and of course all the detail you ...
