Borodino 1812

Posted on March 30th, 2015 under , , , , , , , , . Posted by

First great venue of this year was Anything But 1 group great battle. This time we refight the Battle of Borodino. This game was played by ten players and it took us two days to finish the game. On the table was around 4 000 28mm figures from many collections.
Pierwszy wielkim wydarzeniem tego roku była wielka bitwa rozegrana przez grupę Anything But 1. Tym razem była to powtórka z bitwy pod Borodino. Ta gra została rozegrana przez dziesięciu graczy i zajęła nam to dwa dni by zakończyć grę. Na stole znalazło się około 4 000 figurek w skali 28mm, pochodzących z wielu kolekcji.
Utitsa.
Russian centre.
Borodino and Gorki.
Great Redoubt.
Our battle finished with draw and most Russian positions were still in their hands. French forces did not managed to open their way to Moscow, however my Poles managed to create the gap in Russian lines (for the very high price of loosing 15 battalions of infantry). In our battle Duvot and Poniatowski exchanged their places and my Poles were attacking the positions of Borosdin. The other difference was that the Old Guard moved into the battle, but was bitten by better fire of the Russian troops. Finally French managed to take the Borodino, outskirts of Gorki and Utitsa, however the centre of the Russian lines remind untouched. So the game finished with the draw, which  changed the history (Napoleon wouldn’t be able to take Moskow and had to withdraw to Poland before the winter – quite interesning what would happen after this? Third Polish War?).
Nasza bitwa zakończyła sie remisem i większość pozycji rosyjskich pozostała w ich rękach. Siłom francuskim nie udało się otworzyć drogi na Moskwę, jednakże moi Polacy utworzyli wyrwę w rosyjskich liniach (za bardzo wysoką cenę utraty 15 batalionów piechoty). W naszej bitwie Duvot i Poniatowski zamienili się miejscami i moi Polacy atakowali pozycje Borozdina. Inną różnicą z oryginalną bitwą było użycie Starej Gwardii, jednak została pokonana przez lepszy ogień sił rosyjskich. W końcu Francuzom udało się zająć Borodino, obrzeża Gorki i Uticę, jednakże centrum linii rosyjskich pozostało nietknięte. Gra zakończyła się wiec remisem, który zmieniał historię (Napoleon nie mógłby zająć Moskwy i musiałby wycofać się do Polski przed zimą – ciekawe co nastąpiło by po tym? Trzecia wojna Polska?).

The venue was mostly organized by Jack Glanville, who made a really great job. All participants were happy after the game. Next AB1 meeting in October/November with the Back and Beyond game (so less serious this time). I am going to put some Polish forces for that game with will be also good for Polish-Bolshevik war.
Wydarzenie było głównie zorganizowane przez Jack’a Glanville, który wykonał dużo dobrej pracy nad tym. Wszyscy uczestnicy byli bardzo zadowoleni po grze. Następne spotkanie grupy AB1 odbędzie się na przełomie października i listopada i będzie to gra Back and Beyond (więc trochę mniej powaznie tym razem). Dla tej gry zamierzam wykonać polskie siły, które będą równiez pasować do Wojny Polsko-Bolszewickiej.

2015-03-08 WMMS

Posted on March 10th, 2015 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Having relocated from Nottinghamshire to North Wales WMMS is now one of my closer shows that can I reach easily and was very pleased to discover it is a great show. Thirty odd years ago I visited as a youth and enjoyed it, but today the show is much bigger than I had anticipated.
The leisure centre had plenty of parking and facilities and the show benefited from the show being in one large hall. I thought the games were of a high standard and I loved the fact that there were modelling clubs showing off their superb models as well. I find models and dioramas are enjoyed more by families than perhaps the wargames, as they are seen as art and the level of skill is obvious.
The entry price was very reasonable at £3.
I apologise in advance that I didn’t get the names of all the organisers of games. So what did I see:

Sharpe’s ‘Sharp Practice’ Practice

Posted on February 3rd, 2015 under , , , , , , . Posted by

Matt breaks out his skirmish troops from his Napoleonic forces again, but this time to play a rule set that he’s just bought, ‘Sharp Practice’ by Too Fat Lardies, rather than his home-brewed ones. It’s a character driven set of rules, with the ‘Big Men’ being all important in managing the troops.

From Furness Wargamers in Shakos

Tel, Dave M and Jim are the Honourable French. Keiron, Tony and S.O.Else, the Perfidious Rosbifs. A ‘Big Man’ each, plus one extra to command the forces, Kieron and Dave M doubling up respectively.

With only Matt having the rules, and himself having never played them, he took on the role of refereerules lawyer. A simple scenario, capture and hold the four buildings on the table, with those holding the most winning.

We went through the process of rolling the Big Man attributes in full, but ended up not really using them, a good job as could barely read Dave M’s writing. Most of the French must have been related as they were almost all big and ugly.

The first major incident was when fire from Jim’s unit took down a British Big Man, who rolled a 1 failing to avoid becoming the casualty for the unit. A further roll found him to be Badly Wounded, effectively out of the game. His unit now relying on other Big Men to command it, the limited action of the ‘Sharp Practice’ card (available only to the British) or wait for the free ‘Tiffin’ actions available to unactivated units.

A couple of rounds of fire were traded between the parties, and then the crib sheets were disposed of as it became apparent that the shooting table differed from that in the rulebook! These were a set Matt had downloaded independently of the rules and not from the Lardies site.

At this point we also learnt that the main Big Men could greatly improve the firing by adding their command level to it a extra dice if you can get them to activate before the ‘Tiffin’ cards end the turn.

After advancing close to the enemy to get the benefit of cover we decided to charge the two riflemen who had been left out on a limb. Not sure if we were doing the formations accurately enough, but couldn’t immediately find rules on spacing between skirmish troops, so Tony’s force was effectively split into three bits of terrain. Despite being vastly outnumbered they still managed to repulse us. Rolling better on their 4 dice than our 11!

Meanwhile the main British Big Man, who had a strong resemblance to another fictional Rifleman, had made his way to the leaderless unit and was getting them firing with effect again. The other French continue to move up, but at this point the game ended with two buildings each.

A quick review of the rules at the end showed we were still doing a number of things wrong, including not accounting for the deduction in movement caused by Shock points remaining on the unit. Plus the ‘Tiffin’ cards might not have been done correctly, with us using separate ones for each side.

People thought it was an enjoyable game despite our inexperience, and it started to flow a bit better towards the end as we got use to the all important activationcommand choices and what they meant.¶

Capitaine Gerard and the Convoy. Kapitan Gerard i konwój.

Posted on January 12th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

When you play the first game of the year, it must be something silly. This time we return to our old friend Capitaine Gerard (this is the favourite hero of Donald Adamson). You’ve already met him once, however it was some time ago (so to remember the story check this link).  This game was played last Wednesday at Hugh Wilson’s with a decent number of players. We used Black Powder rules with new break test prepared by Bill Gilchrist.
Kiedy rozgrywasz swoją pierwszą grę w roku, musi to być coś nie do końca poważne. Tym razem powróciliśmy do naszego starego znajomego, Kapitana Gerarda (ulubiony bohater Donalda Adamsona). Mieliście okazję już raz go spotkać, choć to było już jakiś czas temu (dla przypomnienia sprawdźcie ten link). Ta gra została rozegrana w ostatnią środę u Hugh’a Wilson’a z dość przyzwoitą liczbą graczy. Użyliśmy zasad Black Powder z nowym break testem przygotowanym przez Bill’a Gilchrist’a.
SCENARIO/SCENARIUSZ: Donald Adamson

In our game French and British was going to clash about incoming convoy. Both sides want them for their own, however the French were quicker and prepared the ambush. All units had to deployed in seven forests. They could only been activated by Capitaine Gerard, however they were able to defend themselves. We had no idea of where the Brits or the convoy will enter the table. According to this I (as Capitaine Gerard) placed all our infantry in three forests on the possible entry points of the convoy. Our cavalry was left in the middle of the table, to activate them when we will know where the convoy is. That was the plan…
W naszej grze Francuzi i Brytyjczycy zamierzali stoczyć walkę o konwój, który chcieli zatrzymać dla siebie, jednak to Francuzi przybyli wcześniej i to oni przygotowali zasadzkę. Wszystkie oddziały musiały zostać rozstawione w siedmiu lasach. Mogły one być aktywowane przez Kapitana Gerarda, jednak mogły samodzielnie się bronić. Nie mieliśmy pojęcia gdzie Brytyjczycy i konwój wejdą na stół. Zgodnie z tym rozstawiłem (jako Kapitan Gerard) naszą piechotę w trzech lasach na przeciw trzem możliwym miejscom wejścia konwoju. Nasza kawaleria pozostała na środku stołu, aby zostać aktywowana w momencie wejścia na stół konwoju. Taki był plan…
Capitaine Gerard.
The convoy. Konwój
3. The game. Gra.
Everything started exactly as I supposed. We stopped infantry, but the British cavalry broke through our blockades. But we did not worried about this – to stop cavalry we had our cavalry. That what we thought. Bill, who lead our cavalry hadn’t good day that day. He lost both of his units and now our situation wasn’t very good as we cannot support Dave, who unexpectedly found himself closest to the convoy. He was outnumbered by Tim’s and Jim’s forces. After the long fight his forces were destroyed and the convoy get into British hands. On the other side of the forces French stopped the British soldiers, however they weren’t able to change the score of the game. So the first defeat during this year…
Wszystko zaczęło się dokładnie tak jak to przewidziałem. Zatrzymaliśmy brytyjską piechotę, jednak wroga kawaleria przedarła się przez naszą blokadę. Nie martwiliśmy się tym jednak, ponieważ jej zatrzymanie to było zadanie dla naszej kawalerii. Tak myśleliśmy. Bill, który dowodził naszą kawalerią, nie miał dobrego dnia. Utracił oba swoje oddziały i nasza sytuacja stała się bardzo nieciekawa, ponieważ naszymi oddziałami nie mogliśmy wesprzeć Dave’a, który niespodziewanie znalazł się najbliżej konwoju. Został przygnieciony przewaga liczebną oddziałów Tima i Jima. Po długiej walce, jego oddziały zostały wkrótce rozbite i Brytyjczycy opanowali konwój. Po drugiej stronie stołu Francuzi powstrzymali Brytyjczyków, jednakże nie byli w stanie zmienić wyniku gry. Zatem pierwsza porażka w tym roku…
