…a casualty roll. The German players wisely invested in an improved field hospital. After tonight’s action it is being kept very busy!

Sunday, 1620hrs. Reports are coming in of a major air battle. The picture is confused as there is low cloud but several machines are reported downed in the area south of Forges-sur-Meuse.

I hope you are all having a lovely Christmas. And what better way to celebrate the season of peace and goodwill than by a desperate struggle on a cold muddy hill. Welcome then, to 1916.
Next week’s game is set during the Verdun campaign, with a German attack attempting to seize high ground from which French threaten the flank of the main attack. So far I have asked the German and French teams (divisional staff officers) to prioritise resources for the coming struggle. As well as military objectives, their goal is to emerge with their prestige much enhanced. Some elements will be resolved in the next couple of days, giving me many opportunities for photos of gratuitous toy soldier porn. The actual assault will be played as a toy soldier game run here by me with the players joining by Zoom.

Played as usual over Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, this was the second of the Rommel's Route to Verdun series (see the first one here) and was another recce mission.

Yesterday I ran again the Rommel at Cosnes scenario. The three part post of the first game starts here. This time the players were Jack as Rommel and Paul as the French. We started the game (played over Zoom) at just after 1600 hrs and finished by 1755. Over by Christmas indeed!
