Well here is my Batrep for the 38FEST15. I used A World Aflame rules, which I found very playable and I particularly like the limited ammunition rules. Great game, great concept.
|The Field of Play|
|No. 1 and 2 Platoons TAB along the Fosse Way|
A platoon of Socialist Militia, plus the lead elements
of an AL Company.
|"3 Platoon, right flanking to seize Brookfield Farm"|
|"No. 1 Platoon. Enemy 100 yards, to your front, three rounds.|
|The effect of withering, accurate fire! |
Two sections wiped out.
|The third section wins the race to Brookfield Farm|
|No. 2 section left flanks to secure Grange Farm, which has already been taken by 2 platoons of AL.|
|Havildar Baljit Kaal, attempts to pin down the militia with one section, whilst attempting|
to flank the farm with number two section.
|SMG fire takes its toll on No. 1 section.|
|Suffering heavy casualties 3 platoon fall back.|
|No. 1 Platoon, engages in a fire fight with the platoons within Grange Farm.|
|The third AL platoon files into Brookfield Farm to support the Militia.|
|No. 3 platoon encounter Havildar Major Amarjot Singh Aulakh|
|Who inspires them to re-engage the far.|
Preventing them from adding their support to the defenders of Grange Farm
|A vicious firefight, at Grange Farm, decimates No 2 platoon.|
Captain Matthew Rosewood bolsters their morale and leads the survivors
to the safety of Bridge Farm. Securing it for the King.
|Running out of ammo, the Militia's will is broken and they rout.|
|A fatal error!|
Spurred on by the retreat of 2 Plt LPR. No. 1 Platoon St.John's Company AL give chase.
|Winning the firefight, No. 1 platoon, now led by the Company OC (Maj. Richard Beresford),|
assaults Grange Farm.
|The platoon assaults through the farmhouse, finishing off what is left of the defenders |
and falls on the remaining AL platoon. Bayonets and butts are the order of the day.
|Not realising that the defenders of Brookfield Farm are broken and cowering.|
The Havildar Major withdraws the platoon to the company position.
|After securing the stolen jewels in Grange Farm and with prisoners in tow|
Maj. Beresford withdraws the company to barracks.
