Our second major battle of the Anglo-Russian War using the rules The Men Who Would be Kings will be the Scenario "Seize the High Road". Simply put the defender has an objective to protect and the attacker must seize it. The rail systems in Central Asia and India were critical for both the Imperial Russians and the British Indian Army so we thought seizing a key bridge would make and ideal scenario. The British Indian Army would be the Attackers and the Imperial Russians would be the defenders.

Okay, too make things easier I made some unit cards with the stats and quick recognition with Microsoft Powerpoint. When we rolled for the Leadership Value (LV) and Leadership Trait (LT) for each officer we just wrote it down on the unit cards. For the Battle Report I went back and typed in the information. So . . . what kind of officers do we have?

Like what you're doing with this!

Although what is that bridge bridging? Maybe a marsh, or a shallow rough ravine, perhaps a stream could be added. Cheers!

I tried putting my new gorge under it but it looks silly. Probably should have just put some rough terrain.

Regardless, it still seems like a good set up for the scenario to me, cheers!
