FM battle at martin's
« on: October 14, 2020, 09:54:11 PM »
Stewart with later government defending.
5 units of raw infantry. No guns  and no MGs.

Lost plenty of bases due to depletions. Stewart was at maximum depletions as martin got to 35 on the piggy chase whilst Stewart was at zero.

martin with southern rebels (Zapata) attacking.
2 units of average cavalry and 1 of infantry. Plenty of extra men and bombers too.

Good table set up on terms of aesthetic.
martin drove toward all 3 objectives.
All martin's Zapata units destroyed.

Waited 2 turns on an empty battlefield for  reserve Zapata unit to arrive.
Reserve unit needed 3 to assault objective. Rolled 2 then another 2 with the re-roll.

Will get pictures up here soon.

Happenings
1. Scenery set up went well.
2.Assets worked well.
3. Ranges worked well.
4. Cavalry attacking across the open got shot to pieces.

Game took 2 hours.
I can see a "diamond in the rough". The game is forming up quite well in my opinion. Feels quite  FM.
Of course, very early days.

Need to adjust the rules so that i always win.

Stewart lost 6 bases in the game. I lost 50. :-[
A slaughter. Top level victory.

Maybe out by Christmas in pdf??

That sounds like a good game, and fairly historical tactics by Martin?

You may need to implement a "minus 12 D6 victory points if your name is Stewart" rule, Martin, if you're going to continue with these suicidal attacks?

Well, if a plan does not work, then I will just do it again and again. Surely it will work eventually?

Sounds like a plan, Martin. I think Albert Einstein had a word or two to say about that particular theory of probability?

Stewart old tactic of quantity has a quality all of its own wins again.

I can't understand it myself. Like Martin I am a fan of the all out assault all along the line. I really can't understand why it never works.
