I ran a Boxer Rebellion game recently at my club. The rules were the venerable The Sword and the Flame. My buddy took some good photos while I was GM-ing. The scenario had Russian, British, American and French holding out in a Legation complex. They were outnumbered two to one by the Boxers and Imperial Chinese. The Boxers were unable to penetrate the defenses, though they came close.

Nick, that looks like a great game. Were you using full 20 figure units?

Nick Stern Supporting Member of TMP17 Oct 2020 6:32 p.m. PST

No, Nick, half sized units and 3 artillerymen, not 4.

Truly inspiring!

Outstanding Nick! This looks like BIG FUN! Will you perhaps write an AAR with pics discussing the action? Did you use some of the Fastoso rules alterations for smaller units or straight TSATF?

Impressive terrain and figures! There is something about gaming in 54mm. Love it! Cheers!

Love those big toy soldiers! Every gamer should have at least a few of those.
