    On Sunday we played Trench Hammer again, this time as a two player game. The latest blog post is an AAR with some more discussion of the rules. Please have a look here:

    I’m glad the game went well!

    Doing both the hit roll AND the opposed roll would probably get pretty bloody indeed ūüôā

    THe opposed roll will be the standard in Hammer of Democracy, for what its worth.

    Someday I hope to figure out your rules Ivan..before you change them again.

    Thanks for the comments Ivan and clarification! Yes, we found that the two rolls were really wiping units out! So does that mean there is a typo on Jozi’s QRS by adding the -2 modifier on the assault?

    KB, which bit are you struggling with? I find them pretty clear and smooth running.

    Unless there’s something I am forgetting or he tweaked the rule, I think that’s just a hold-over from the original rule.

    I suck at learning rules by reading them, I need someone to teach them to me.

    Hi guys, sorry¬†I am late to the thread, regular life has been intervening.¬† Yes, I think I have a typo in the QRS where I was fiddling with it to switch over to the new assault rules.¬† I’ll fiddle some more with it this weekend.

    I am glad you found the unit cards useful.  As usual, your terrain and figures are superb and I am gratified that you found historical tactics worked.

    Kyote, I have been thinking about doing a step by step tutorial, do you think it would be better as a video or pictures with words?

    Video with subtitles would work best for me. I’m kinda deaf so reading what you say helps.

    Thanks for the clarification guys, I thought that was the case, so it’s good to be proven right! Ha ha.

    Jozi, the cards are excellent and I will definitely be using them in all future games. They really speed things up.

    One question I have as I have the two of you’s attention, Scouts. We played them as though any rifle unit that plays an engage action can put out scouts, thereby minimising their casualties to a maximum of one for the first round of fighting. However, if they take a casualty then they lose that bonus for any further fighting. Is this correct?

    KB, it’s a shame we live over 3,000 miles apart otherwise, I would be happy to demonstrate the game to you!

    Thanks!  I laminate everything I can get my hands on, unit cards, quick reference sheets, the cat.

    As for Scouts… I pulled¬†that in from Ivan’s Squad Hammer Options Pack, so if you deploy a scout from¬†a rifle section you have the “Point Man” advantage I think it is called.¬†¬†I threw that in there because¬†in the TFL¬†scenarios you frequently have scouts available.

    I need to put a disclaimer on my stuff that I have usually tinkered with it, and while I have the idea straight in my head, my docs may not convey it very well.

    I did get trench hammer on the table weekend before last with my wife’s 14 year old nephew and it went over like gang busters.¬† I will try to get pics up today.

    Yeah, the laminator is the best thing I ever bought, worth every penny. LOL at laminating the cat.

    Let me know when you post your next AAR (a couple of rules clarifications wouldn’t go amiss!).
