An Incident In Belgium, August 11th 1914

I popped over to GHQ today for another play test of our embryonic rules for fighting actions at the beginning of the Great War, below are a few taster pictures. For a full report on how the Kaisers Kinder fared against Great Britain's Contemptible Little Army pop over to Dave's rather splendid blog. We seem to be getting where we want to be with the basic rules now, a few tweaks for the next game after which we should begin to pad them out more.

 The figures are mainly Great War Miniatures with the odd Foundry or Renegade figure thrown in.

  1. I rather like those pictures, Phil. Very sharp detail. A good game I thought too, very close until near the end too.

    1. Yes it was an excellent set to, pity the German fire was not a tad more accurate it may have made up for the BEF's better musketry. Better luck next time perhaps.
