This is a repost of a small battle using mainly available forces. Hope you enjoy!
Canadian forces have been pressed heavily and the BEF charge at dawn to help stablize the line. Here we see elements of the 5th BEF/Canadian brigade smash into an unprepared Martian forward area.
Table: 4x6' Long Edge running North to South. Time: Jan 1916. Weather: Clear. Turns: Six + extension roll. Victory: break opponent. Special; BEF has initiative the first & second turns (Turn 1 & Turn 2). Terrain: 2x Lt. Woods North & 2x Lt. Woods South of midline.

This should be a quick, nasty affair as the BEF try to take advantage of their 'surprise' and the Martian player reacts. Both forces have enough firepower to cripple the other. This should play quickly and encourages more than one game in an evening, switching sides to be fair. This is also small enough to experiment with the various new turn sequence rules listed elsewhere. Enjoy!
