The Raid on Wurstdorf – Honours of War Scenario

words & pics by Stuart Insch

 

HOW are proving an excellent set of rules. Last night we played this scenario from the HOW forum as I hadn’t had a chance to put together something of my own. You can find it here HOW Forum

We used my Russians as the Pragmatic army and a mix of Hessians and Hoegaarden troops for the French.

An excellent little scenario for a great club game. The “French” achieved their objective of scoring the forage, but the “pragmatic” forces broke their army in the process. A somewhat Pyrrhic victory.

Highlights included the early destruction of the French advance Dragoons following a spirited charge and follow up by the Kuirassier. And on the last turn a death or glory charge by French cavalry into the hussars only to be shot up badly on the way past by musketry which caused heavy casualties and lead them to being destroyed.

Some piccies below!

Club Night – Tuesday 29th October

Folks,

Mike, Mike, Alistair, Rob and Ross met up for a bit of terrain building on Sunday in order to get the Bruneval Raid terrain finished off before TARGE on the 9th November.

We made a big dent in the work and all that remains are the finishing touches; the beach area is still drying off and is a little to delicate to transport this week.

As such we’ll not be able to run the game this week. However we will meet as normal at the Legion and take along some board games to while away the evening.

Hope to see you all there!

All the best.

Club Night – Tuesday 22nd October, 2013

Folks,

Following on from the 1st full play-through of the Bruneval Raid scenario we’re going to re-run it again this week including some more lessons learned from last week!

Edited Map

We need 5 willing participants and 2 umpires to run the game properly so the more folks we can get along the better, so let us know if you’ll be along this week.

Hope to see you all again tonight.

We really need some decent numbers to allow us to play the full game so if you could make it along tonight that would be great!

Hope to see you all again tonight.

Club Night – Tuesday 1st October, 2013

Folks,

Only 2 members last week so the club made a slightly bigger loss of £11.  As we took the decision to ask the Legion to stay open later for us we will now be charged £19 per week regardless of whether we turn up or not, so to avoid the club losing money we really need to get our numbers back up!

 

At the moment nothing else is firmly in place; however Alistair mentioned that he may put on an American Civil War scenario using the “Mr Lincoln’s War” ruleset. Alistair will also take along “Hammer of the Scots” as an alternative. As always you can take along your own figures and have a game!

 

This weekend will be our regular “Monthly Sunday” and it is hoped that we will get the Bruneval Raid PPG  played thru on our hand-built terrain. This will allow members to get used to the scenario and rules so that we can all help to make the game a success at Targe – Kirriemuir, Saturday 9th November.

 

In order to gauge numbers can you please respond and let us know if you’ll make it along.

 

 

Hope to see you all tonight.

Best regards,

OWG

Club Night – Tuesday 24th September, 2013

Folks,

Just a reminder that we’re back to meeting from 7 to 11pm at the Oldmeldrum British Legion. Only 4 members last week so the club made a small loss. Hopefully this is just a blip and we’ll see our regular members back in five shortly.

We’ll continue to monitor numbers over the coming weeks and perhaps take a vote on weekly dues and or club times depending on the numbers that we get.

At the moment nothing else is planned; however Alistair and John mentioned that they may put on an American Civil War scenario. Alternatively you can take along your own figures for a game!

In order to gauge numbers can you please respond and let us know if you’ll make it along.

Hope to see you all tonight.

Club Night – Tuesday 17th September, 2013

Folks,

We’re back to meeting from 7 to 11pm at the Oldmeldrum British Legion; however the price of the room rental has increased from £10 to £19 per night – as a result we need to get at least 5 members per week to make this wok financially. If we can’t keep up the numbers we’ll either need to stick to 6-10pm or increase the weekly fees.

Plans for this coming week are as follows:

Table 1:

Mike Travis will be putting on an early war Bolt Action scenario using his French and Germans. Mike has figures enough for a decent 1v 1 game.

 

At the moment nothing else is planned; however there will be boardgames available should you wish or you can take along your own figures for a game! In order to gauge numbers can you please respond to the embedded poll.

 

 

Hope to see you all tonight.
