March 22, 1918 and a battered British platoon struggles to slow the Boche horde. A fairly blow by blow example of the game mechanics and how they work with lots of pictures.

Good explanation of the rules. I hope to get them from Ivan sometime soon.28/01/2018 at 21:44 #82959
Great! I hope it helps. Took me 8 times longer to write it up than to play it… I hope he gets them to you soon.

Me too! I have tons of painted WW1 figures for FOW Great War all ready to go.10/02/2018 at 00:37 #84145
Got the TrenchHammer rules in today, thanks!12/02/2018 at 05:48 #84314
Did my first read threw, I’m using 15 mm figures based for FOW Great War, so 4 figures per base for infantry and 3 figures per base for Light MG’s Leaders/Officers 3 figures on a small base. Will those work?
It looks like it plays on a 2×2 board?
I’ll get troops and terrain out and when I do get to try a walkthrough I’ll take and post pics to my Facebook page.
Thanks again, Guys!12/02/2018 at 15:54 #84349
No problem! Your basing should work fine, you just need a way to track hits on squads, there is no removal until the squad is combat ineffective. I’d go with two of your FOW based per squad, so your figurecratio is about 1:1.
I use dice for convenience to track hits, but have some casualty figures I need to paint up.
2×2 with lots of terrain, should be fine. My play area is about 2.5 feet wide on my blog.
let us know how you get on and tinker away with them!

How would you suggest doing French for Trench Hammer?15/02/2018 at 19:04 #84605
Sorry just saw this, i’ll Have to noodle it some. I have some notes at home for late 1917 – October 1918 French. Will get back to you.

I have more painted and based French than I do Brits.16/02/2018 at 18:43 #84693
Ok, here we s my stab at the French. I am interested in doing them myself and eventually. My limited understanding was the platoon leader could shuffle troops around sections as needed, ie concentrate his rifle grenade launchers.
Here’s how I would do it, if we are lucky someone with better knowledge will chime in.
April 1916 – October 1917
1 bombing squad
1 chauchat squad (as Lewis squad)
2 rifle squads with additional option for rifle grenade attack with D3 damage
October 1917-October 1918
2 x bombing squads
2 x chauchat / gl squads, which may fire as a Lewis Section OR a gl Section. Don’t forget that rifle grenades ignore overhead cover, but do d6-1 damage while the chauchet gets the -1 to hit, so depends on your tactical situation
how does that sound?

I’ll give it a shot, thanks!18/02/2018 at 23:46 #84878
I posted a couple of pictures of my set up on my Facebook page. Er, I’m the only Jonathan Keepers in Oklahoma if you look for it.
