Five Rejects got together last weekend for a WWI game, unusually for us it wasn’t a land battle, but a sea battle!! Also resident Evil Umpire Postie was playing not umpiring!! That honour went to Reject John, who bought over his collection of 1/2400 ships and his three Tiny Wargames mats.
We picked out sides out of the hat, me and Surj (Germans) were pitted again BigLee and Evil Postie (Brits). You can read Lee’s battle report here.
The battle plan was simple, the German High Seas fleet were stuck on the wrong side of the Horn Reef sandbanks, and had to wait for an undetermined time to cross them safely. Also there was a minefield all along the edge of the smaller mat, leading out into the open ocean , with only two narrow corridors left open for access. If we could we had to lure the Brits into the minefield. Otherwise we were to engage the fleet and destroy them.
