    Personally I’d probably treat a mixed squad as a rifle grenadier squad as the chauchats were notoriously unreliable.

    The squad changed organisation over time what I have is as follows.

    April 1916 – October 1917

    CHQ
    4 x Platoons, each:
    PHQ
    Bombing squad (8 rifles)
    MG squad (1 chauchat, 6 rifles)
    2 x rifle squads (12 rifles ea incl 2 x VB gl)
    usually operated into two half platoons.

    Oct 1917 – Oct 1918

    CHQ
    4 x Inf Platoons each:
    PHQ
    2 x half platoons each:
    LMG/GL squad (7 men, 1 x Chauchat, 3 x VB gl)
    Rifle/bomber squad (7 men incl 2 bombers)

    Oct 1918 – ??

    CHQ
    4 x infantry platoons each:
    PHQ
    3 x ‘groupe de combat’ each:
    1 x bombing team (6 men with rifles, bombs & 1 x VB gl)
    1 x MG team (6 men with 1 x Chauchat & 5 rifles)

    Nice battle report. If I didn’t have an existing 15mm collection I would have gone for Pendraken’s range.

    Some nice work there, I like to mix historical ranges in with the fantasy to give more variety.

    My copy of Once upon a time in the west is glossy covered.

    The good thing with the new printing of the Pony Wars rules is all the cards will be included, so you wouldn’t have 100 or so of those to make which you would have to do with the old version. £25 for a hard covered set of rules with colour printing and the incident cards is pretty reasonable compared to most other current wargames.

    The site for the new version is https://ponywars.uk/

    Thanks for the review. Looks like an interesting set and as it seems to be driven by bases rather than individual figures I can see how I could use it with smaller scale blocks for the WotR.

    Look pretty decent as an addition to the Frostgrave ranges.

    Looks good and personally though I have resisted Infamy so far I am doing Sharp Practice in 15mm.

    Some great looking games there. Glad to see it raising money for a good cause too.
