We had an excellent game of Spearhead last week playing a conversion of the Rapid Fire scenario "Take the Twin Villages" from the Battle of the Bulge book. Read all about it at link

Nice report. It is interesting, how you play infantry heavy battles with Spearhead. I usually cant resist to have mostly tanks.

Debalus – what I've found is that if I want to get through a game in an evening at the club, some of the players may be less experienced than others. Rapid Fire scenarios are a reasonable size (certainly more so than the published Spearhead scenarios!!!), and giving everyone a Battalion each means we can finish the game in about 3 hours.

The other thing is that smaller games makes people more inclined to protect their assets, and use their support elements in a much more historic way.

Feedback from the players has been excellent so far, and I have found the games much more enjoyable as a result.

I do plan some bigger games later in the year – I already have enough toys painted!
