Last week however I turned up at John's to witness a First World War landscape with early war German and British troops facing each other. I knew he had been painting up some 12mm? figures and had been very keen to use a set of rules he had bought from Great Escape Games.
This would be the second wargame I had ever fought based around the first World War and I looked at the scenario with some trepidation.
Selecting the German's simply because there was more of them I set to battle. For the next four hours battle raged across Belgium where I began to fully appreciate the firing abilities of that Contemptible Little Army.
It was a very close battle but at the end the British had captured two of the three objectives and the Kaiser's army was basically exhausted. What a cracking game. The rules were easy to understand but not simplistic. The whole battle was fast moving and very enjoyable. New rules aren't all that bad.
