Napoleonic battle between the Austrians and French… and a World WR 3 battle in West Germany between NATO and Warsaw pact.

The Battle of Stoke Magna was in 6mm using Hail Caesar rules.

The Lancastrians held the town and Abbey and saw the Yorkist army advance along a wide front. Yorkist troops had initial difficulty crossing the brook but eventually were able to push the Lancastrian line back. A win for the House of York. Game was with Ray commanding the Lancastrians and Nigel and Jean commanding the Yorkists.

The 28mm Napoleonic game objective was to secure the bridge. Both Austrians and French faced off across the river, but it was the Austrians who boldly charged a cavalry unit across the bridge.

 

A hard days pounding but the Austrians won the day. Ron commanded the French with Martin and Mark running the Austrians.

The 6mm WW3 game was a Team Yankee affair seeing the NATO contingent (of British and West German) advancing along the autobahn to block a strong Soviet probing attack.

 

The Soviets advanced very quickly capturing the village and the railway level crossing. The West Germans worked methodically through the fields along the line of the railway and engaged in a fierce fight with Soviet mechanised infantry.

 

The British held a defensive line but very competently covered the autobahn. The Soviet losses were heavy, but they won a significant victory capturing three of the four objectives. A great game with Will and Andy commanding the Soviets…and David running the British and Steve the West Germans
