    All,

    It’s 1545 on 2 June 1990, and war in Cronistria is entering a new phase. To date, Task Force Trojas has conducted Unconventional Warfare missions with its A-Teams while its B Team trained recruits of the Cronistrian Democrat Militia (CDM) to battle the communists, i.e., the uniformed Cronistrian National Guard (CNG) and the rag-tag Cronistrian People’s Army (CPA). The first battalion of Democrat Militia has been trained and TF Trojas A-team personnel are serving in leadership roles as the B-Team continues to train more men. The Cronistrian Democrat President, Andraz Gregor, has a nephew in the CDM. The nephew has fought several battles at TF Trojas’ side, and has accounted himself very well. And so Sasha Kukoc has been given the rank of Captain and made a company commander in the 1st CDM Battalion.

    It’s time to take the fight to the enemy. Cronistria is a small, sparsely populated nation, with the major urban center being the capital city of Miran. Cronistria’s fate largely rests on who will ultimately control Miran, and so the CDM Battalion, centered in outlying rural areas, has begun patrolling into the villages lying on the outskirts of the capital. One such village, lying just southwest of Miran, was about to become a flashpoint; a minor battle that would become a test of wills.

    And so Captain Kukoc wasn’t expecting much when he and SSgt Escalante (“Blade”) led Alpha Company’s 2nd Platoon into the village of Brevno, but the show had just begun.


    The village of Brevno, north is up. The locals spotted trouble coming from both east and west and left town. The village had been untouched by the war; the Inn at top left, the Post Office at top center, Apartments at top right, the City Office at bottom right, and the Manor at bottom left. A few trees, hedges, haystacks, market stands, and a single (inoperable) automobile dot the otherwise pristine landscape.

    This is the magnificent new City Set from Crescent Root, in 15mm. To see how the fight went, please check the blot at:

    What a fight, and what a perfect start to this portion of the campaign! The boy and I had a great time, lots of back and forth, and really it all came down to my being lucky with Captain Kukoc taking the Post Office despite being outnumbered and getting fired at several times at point blank range.

    I didn’t get any gaming in this weekend, just trying to get caught up on the batreps. So stay tuned, there are three more to go.

    V/R,
