I have just set up my final game of 2020. Taking the advantage of the recent thaw the Reichsarmee have taken the chance to mount an attack upon the Austrian held village of Weltschmerz. Here we see them trudging through the slush filled forest towards their goal.
Unbeknown to the Reichsarmee the forests are crawling with Croats including some dug in occupying prepared positions...
Alan, it looks like the slush have covered your grid! Pesky things, snow storms. What rules are you using? Love the figures.ReplyDelete
Eric I have dispersed with the grid for a wee change. As for rules I will use either Joe Saur’s Old Wormley Creek Wargames Society rules or my own , not quite decided yet.Delete
Looks great! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ross, I will.Delete
Great set up Tradgardmastare.ReplyDelete
Very eager to say how this plays out.ReplyDelete
I am as well, even in a wee solo game there is, for me, a sense of what will happen in the story and what will the ending be...Delete
Lovely stuff, great figures and I like the snowy scenery! Looking forward to seeing the outcome.ReplyDelete
Thanks David, the piece of white felt combined with the backdrop has worked really well I think . Simple but effective.Delete

Is the village of Weltschmerz twinned with Ennui in France?ReplyDelete
How did you do the Trench sections / figures? Did you cut up old figures? Are they permanent? I know that Peter Laing used to do precast trench / shell holes with riflemen for his WW1 range 15mm.
Presumably this is an early example of "Zoom casual" as you only see / paint them from waist up.
I believe the villages are twinned though I fear not many are interested. The Croats were painted figures cut in half and permanently fixed to an Mdf base with some tetrion ground workings. It wasn’t that long ago that I discovered about the use of such fieldworks in the syw and felt I could sacrifice a figure or two to make them. I didn’t know Peter Laing did that. I wish more manufacturers did so for river crossings etc etc but it isn’t a problem in their absence to make our own.ReplyDelete
This seems true - neither the village petty officials of Weltschmerz or Ennui can be that bothered to organise the gravy train of official visits, present giving and mutual incomprehension on guided tours of the tourist cultural delights of either village or town.ReplyDelete
