...or what we're calling it for now.
Last night was another playtest for our rules for playing larger scale Fistful of Lead games. We're trying to keep the same mechanics for the most part, so that players familiar with FfoL can jump right in to larger battles.
For this run through I dug out a fraction what used to be my GASLIGHT armies. An Anglo-French army was battling a German force for control of a key crossing. At the end of six turns we checked to see if night had fallen.
I present the Battle of Spikey Helmets
Over all, I think this was very successful. 4 players, 21 units, over in 2 and half hours. And it felt like a FfoL game. Essentially, you're treating a unit or a vehicle like you would a single miniature in the regular games. Vehicles were tough but not too tough. Not rallying off shock meant troops lost combat effectiveness and fell back or routed.
Can't wait to try with other periods.
