I have written up and planned the second of a planned series of WW2 historical scenarios based on the operations of the Hampshire Regiment (7th Battalion) of the 130th Brigade, 43rd (Wessex) Division in Europe July 1944 to April 1945.
This takes place on 31 July 1944 and sees two companies attacking across farmland towards a ridgeline objective. A German Kompanie is defending.
The post is, as per the first scenario, very long as it contains the scenarios followed by an AAR. I used some company level rules I have written that are extremely similar to my battlaion level rules. The game was played using 6mm forces on a small 28″x19″ table.
I actually played it weeks ago and had most of it written up two weeks ago but socialising and the opportunity to get some games with my 20mm forces held up completion.
Thanks for the kind comments, I haven’t posted the actual rules I was using. But they are almost exactly the same as the topmost ones on the page – Advance to Cover. There are no changes to any measurements and the only changes are:
If any base moves more than 50% of its move, it fires at -1 (vehicles moving more than 50% cannot fire).
If your hit score is equal to what is required to hit the target is suppressed and retreats; if score is greater than target is destroyed.
Morale is also done by platoon (usually 3 infantry bases) – green test when 1 base lost; regulars when 2 bases lost; veterans don’t test. Company tests are still done as normal (at roughly 50% depending on green/regular/veteran).
The gridlines are only there to help with terrain setup – both converting from the WW2 map to the table, and for anyone wanting to play the scenario.
