A Very Moderate Swedish Conflict AAR #6


Last week I and Jonas run a couple of test games of the rules I been working on lately for our "A Very Moderate Swedish Conflict" Club Project.

This time we run some small games using 200 point forces and only a 90x60cm gaming area...what could be fited in on my kitchen table.


I also got a chanse to use my new built "Dalkulla" and the latest addition to the project, the Wasa Defense Corps.

OOB

Wasa Defense Corps
Regulars: Veteran //Confident

Leader:
  • Lieutenant Colonel Ekström with Close Assault Weapon, Tactician and Unpredictable. Offboard Mortar Support,
Troops:
  • 1 Rifle Squad of 8 men with Rifles one with Close Assault Weapon.
  • 1 LMG Squad of 6 men with Rifles and one Light Machine Gun.

"Gruvettan" Socialist miner union
Militia: Green//Confident

Leader:
  • Supervisor Göransson with Close Assault Weapon, Guerrilla. Offboard Mortar Support,
Troops:
  • 2 Assault Squad of 5 men with Rifles and Dynamite.
  • 1 HMG Squad of 4 men with Rifles and HMG.
  • 1 Loyd Carrier with A-T Rifle
Gruvettan advanced along the road in cover of their Loyd Carrier. They haden´t come far as it caught fire from the enemy and the engine catch fire...


Gruvettan tried to return the fire to no vain...

The Deffence Corps advanced stediely towards the objective the uthility station.

In cover of some well placed mortar rounds with smoke one of the Gruvettan assault squads managed to advance close to the "Dalkulla"

ASSAULT !!!!  Charging, yelling, throwing dynamite, and the Vasa Defence Corps was on the run after a short and fierce close assault...

The Gruvettan celebrate their first success for a long while...

We had a very nice game, that run for about 90 minutes, but we talked quite much of different rules etc, so it would have been concluded in about 60 minutes.

Below follows a few pictures of our second game for the evening, that was concluded in about 60 minutes and Gruvettan got to celebrate once more:)




Last you will get a sneak peak of the game board for tonights club game. We will use about 600 points on each side. Of course you will find a AAR at blog near you...

    1. Thank you!

      Its my own ideeas with the parts me and my friends like from the “Muskets & Tomahawks”, “Through the Mud and the Blood” and “Triumph & Tragedy”. We are in a period of playtest and if it all turns out well and we put them together I will make them available in some way.

  5. I agree with the above, your tables are often extraordinary, and there's always a bit of light-hearted silliness to the action that is somehow very Swedish. Keep it up!

    How did you do the large river in the above shot for the club game?

    1. Thanks Rob !

      I suppouse the light-hearted silliness comes from the "Pilsnerfilmer" (Pilsnerfilm is a nickname for some Swedish comedy films from the 1930s, I can tell more about that in a blog post later on).

      The river was made by a friend some years ago, it was made out of transparant OH-film that was covered with some sort of Sealant and then painted over and flocked.

  7. It seems only fitting that the workers should advance the struggle of the proletariat on Labor Day.
