Way back at the start of March, I was joined by Matt and a couple of forum friends Goat Major and Timmo to celebrate my birthday by way of a 10mm AWI game. We chose at random based on the forces we had available Haarlem Heights, a scenario written by another forum friend Brendan. I duly got the terrain laid out using my best interpretation of the terrain against the restrictions of the Geo Hex system I bought last year. This gave a pretty pleasing look to the table though, and with a few additions from Matt mainly the fencing and streams and Goat Major’s lovely buildings we had a 5×6 foot table looking not totally dissimilar to the layout in the book. What I’d not realised at this point was that we’d end up using only about 1/3rd of the entire table!
The game went well, with a few hiccups due to rules misunderstandings etc as is normal when you play something for the first or second time. We all had a good time I hope and everyone felt that British Grenadier is a good system, but that things do tend to take a while to resolve. Once things start to go wrong though it looks like it goes downhill fast, but we never actually got that far.
