Kenneth’s Heroes – Building the board, Part II

Posted on June 1st, 2017 under , , , , . Posted by

Over the past few weeks, Dave Luff and I have been scratch-building scenery for our “Kenneth’s Heroes” game for Operation Market Larden, which is being held next weekend (10th June). We’ve pretty much finished all the scenery, so this evening was spent putting the board together in a dry run for the game. First off is the Brewery, which has been built from foamcore, plasticard, MDF and embossed plastic walls from Plast Craft Games. Then there are the walled gardens and village high walls, also built from a mixture of foamcore and plasticard: The Churchyard has been made from foamcore, MDF and some embossed plastic walls from Plast Craft Games. The Gravestones are from Magister Militum. The final table, ready for play-testing the scenario: Filed under: Painting & Modelling Tagged: 15mm Gaming, Chain Of Command, Terrain, World War II

Posted on May 24th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

Rating: This 48 page book, available as a PDF or an e-book, is a campaign supplement written by Chris Stoesen for the Chain of Command World War II Platoon level rules from Too Fat Lardies. It is worth noting that this supplement is not a complete game in itself, and you will need both a copy of the main Chain of Command Rules and the At The Sharp End campaign rules in order to play, along with a copy of the Big Chain of Command rules. This book is actually two campaigns in one, as it follows the fortunes of the German 57th Division and 101st Light Division as they advanced on the Russian city of Kharkov in October 1941. The Soviets were attempting to evacuate the city ahead of the German advance, and a rear-guard consisting of the Soviet 216th Rifle Division was tasked with holding the German forces until the evacuation was complete. The supplement starts with a 6 page introduction to the battle, which gives the background and details events between the 20th – 25th October 1941. The campaign actually consists of two ladders – one for the 101st Light Division and another for the 57th Infantry […]
