Edition 4 gamette
« on: September 15, 2019, 08:19:40 AM »
Edition 4 is underway. Thanks for those who have sent stuff in. More still welcome.
John has contributed a nice gamette.
I have also worked on a gamette.  Luxury.

The gamette will be  "Bloody trench raids."
The fundamental new mechanism i am introducing is this:-

The British raiders (Anglican regiment) get a bunch of D6 each turn. They use the D6 for actions. Any fails move those D6 to the Germans (Battenberg regiment). No fails = no German move.  Brilliant :-\.  The Germans can use any D6 they gain for their own turn.  This creates an impetus for the raiders to be careful and not lose D6, This simulates caution when sneaking about.


The table will be small. at this stage 12" by 8" into 2" squares. Sadly this will "cut the game off" for those who do not like grids. But not to worry, no loss. :)

Another new mechanism for game length introduced here too.

More detail to come. The game is general enough for any two  opponents.   Thus it could be French raiding, Australian raiding, Canadians raiding(considered very good raiders), Austrians raining, Italians raiding (considered very good raiders) etc.

Any questions?

I was expecting a paratroopers related gamette since it's September, but now I'm really interested in this one.

Thank you! I have been lurking for a few days now, really like the miniatures and I'm a fan of the 15mill.

A fair few list members have seen the WW1 trench raid gamette.
Thanks for the feedback and info.
When it is ready i will publish the edition 4.

 If we can only get the MILL out by end of October our European readers will be able to read it too.

Needs a TOC.
Looks interesting and you do not need many figures, no cavalry, no tanks.

I can add that in Les.
It will need 6 British and 6 german figures. This gives a total of 12, or 24 if you put 2 per base??
I am waiting for the new pack of British trench raiders. The Germans will be drawn from the existing Germans in WW1 range.
