Full AAR here: link

We completed our first day of the campaign's Scenario #2: Siege of the Ronda Colom in early February. We had a new player, our friend Lee, who is very knowledgable about the period and really picked up the game fast, as you will see. With my phone out of commission, Lee also volunteered to take the great photos included in this post.


Lee joined Chris as the Nationalist defenders, the Spanish army in revolt against the Republic, clinging to a few remaining buildings as the workers advanced to crush the coup in Catalonia. John and I continued as the Spanish workers of the anarchist CNT union defense committees, arisen to put down the nationalist coup.

John and I had the numerical advantage, with over one hundred and fifty workers formed into groups of five. Roughly half of these groups covered barricades blocking strategic intersections across the city.


The remaining workers formed into three groups of 25, which would be our attack forces. Our table had three roads running toward the harbor, so we placed an attack group on each road. John took the group on the northern-most road. This First Attack Group was supported by an MG installed in the bed of a pickup truck.

Very nice AAR, and a very interesting scenario !

Thanks for making the effort to record it, and make it available to us all !

No problem Chick, I'm very glad you enjoyed it. The second day's AAR is on the way. I hope we can get together for a third day soon.

"who is very knowledgable about the period and really picked up the game fast"

what game was it?

It's our own rules, similar to the ones I developed for the Mexican Revolution.


I hope to put out a similar PDF booklet for the SCW once we get through the whole campaign and I finish writing. Some of the updates include shorter infantry movement, barricades are more important, plus lots of variety of vehicles and weapons.

Impressive research and gaming preparation effort Makhno1918!

much appreciated FlyXwire. We hope to finish this one up tomorrow. I have a whole campaign planned out for the Durruti Column, I think it's about 20 scenarios with briefings and different options for atternative history branches… in draft form. Had to stay busy during the pandemic :-)
