    Along the lines of WIP Wednesday: If you manage to write up/post an AAR within the year does it still count? ; )   …though the first game for this was played two years ago, so I didn’t even manage that.  Anyway…

    My eldest son and I did some Battle of the Bulge gaming (mostly) last year and I felt it was time to get the notes off of my desk before I completely forget what happened.  I still haven’t taken the time to learn how to make a presentable (much less attractive) webthingy, but figured some may appreciate any excuse to prolong their screen time by scrolling through an AAR or two.  I’ve cobbled together an overview page  ( http://brawlfactory.net/bloody-pint/ )  and the AAR for one of the games ( http://brawlfactory.net/bloody-pint-campaign-turn-one-map-b/ ) so far.  Hopefully the next few days will see me finish AARs for the two other games.

    Managed to post the next AAR:  http://brawlfactory.net/bloody-pint-campaign-turn-one-map-a/

    The next (what turned out to be last) game involves six platoons, so may take a bit to finish…

    Here’s the final (rather scanty, hastily done) AAR: https://brawlfactory.net/bloody-pint-campaign-turn-three-map-b/

    I came thinking this was Call Of Chtulu…  😀

    Sorry Mike, but I greatly prefer this over Cthulhu – less madness and purple prose at least.  😉

    Fantastic looking game.  Winter battles are always striking visually.  I’m impressed by your organization sheets.  We just tend to pull stuff out, and muddle through.

    That’s on purpose of course, to model fog of war accurately, not at all because we have zero ability to plan. 😲  (I remember playing at least one game, and in the middle of packing up during the inevitable post battle chatter, notice I forgot to bring my Stug on).

    Done.  I realize it’s not that great, but it feels good to get it off of the ‘to do’ list.

    Visually, I really like the scattering of dirt and foliage bits you have along the road and in gardens, it adds so much.

    “…scattering of dirt and foliage bits…”

    As a final step in making a table it really makes an impact – and easy to clean up/dump into a baggie for the next time!
