I've recently refought the battle for the Twin Villages of Rocherath-Krinkelt during the battle of the Bulge .

Me and some friends went all out to recreate it. I thought I'd share the methodology behind the table set up which uses hexon boards to get contours with cloth draped over it.

The game itself was epic!
An After Action Report on this large 6mm battle designed to help test rules for our All Hell Let Loose ruleset will follow shortly.
More information and background on what we did at allhellletloose.co.uk or our facebook group link

Epic terrain.

Any details on the new rules, like what scale it's pitched at?

( I'm not on Faceache).

Cheers, B

Hi Thresher01 thanks for the thumbs up!

Hi BattlerBritain, the rules are designed for 6mm play and are intended to enable one or more players as side each controlling between 3 and 5 battalion sized formations.
It allows for hidden/ strategic movement. There's no map drawing or written orders.
The effectiveness of units is determined by battalion activation – affected by quality, leadership and attrition. Sometimes they won't do what you want, sometimes they do more.
There are only 3 mechanisms to learn – activation, firing and assaults.
Fun, realistic and fast plus I actually get to be a general.
I am helping design and publish them though and some might think me biased.
allhellletloose.co.uk contains and will see more info – in more detail than you'll see on facebook anyway
