I have been playing quite a lot of Peter Pigs excellent WW1 Squarebashing rules this summer.
I took part in Lurkio’s Squarebashing day on 24 June – a great event with a friendly wargaming crowd. Here is a good report:
This was followed up with a very well-researched game for Oppy wood organised by James Morris with myself and Tom Webster-Deakin taking part. I also played James’ Fort Vaux Verdun scenario earlier in the year at the Burton wargaming club. Tom’s report for Oppy Wood can be found at:
I have now finished my very own first two Squarebashing armies – late German and British using the rather nice Kallistra 12 mm range – here are some photos of a very recent game with my son. The buildings were simply made with cork tiles and filler, painted with cheap poster paints. The battlemat was also poster paint daubed over a cloth. Roads kindly provided by that perfect gentleman Ray Boyles. The Mk IV tanks are by Butlers Printed Models – these 3D prints can be made at any scale. Hasty defences by Pendraken 10mm. Blasted woods from my hedge!!
