In this exciting attack defence game, a British brigade, supported by an understrength Belgian regiment, valiantly held off waves of attacking Boche. British marksmanship, witnessed in their 'mad minute', along with deadly artillery fire broke up the German formations. The brave Belgians not only defended effectively, but actually went on the offensive as the Germans reeled back from an unsuccessful assault.

As for the Boche, they experienced movement blockages, caused by the terrain and poor command and control. Their cavalry was deployed inappropriately, and their artillery performed disappointingly.

Figures are all 20mm – a mix between Zvezda, Strelets, HaT and Airfix. The rules are homemade.

Nice looking figures and game – especially like the staff car and the bicycle mounted Jaegars.

Love the game! Love the figs too! I never did pick up any Belgians. Looks like they are pretty much sold out except for the heavy weapons now.
