A group of us got together including, Andy Finkel all the way from London, to playtest Field of Battle: 1900-1914 being written by Mark Dudley (one of the Ilkley Lads!).
We broke out my 15mm RJW miniatures and some beer and had at it!
Andy is known for rolling 1s in his games, but I believe his luck had turned this night.
We had a larger Japanese force, including Imperial Guard (red band on hat), attacking an entrenched Russians brigade on some hills.
Japanese Commanders: Eddie Prince, Andy Finkel, and Mike Johnson
Russian Commanders: Brian Connolly, Turner Burgess (my son)
Umpire: Eric Burgess (me)
Russians blasting the Japanese (I know this is smokeless powder age, but we like the smoke)
this photo is blurry, but I LOVE it! Great shot of a Japanese regiment storming the Russian right flank.
With both flanks destroyed and the Imperial Guard smashing the center the Russians capitulated!
The Japanese won the game driving the Russians from their positions.
