MWWBK: Plains Wars at Partizan
« on: October 26, 2021, 05:07:57 AM »
Not sure if this post should be here or on the Old West board, but as it’s about the MWWBK rules, thought it sat much better here.

Had a lot of fun putting on a large MWWBK game at Partizan, demonstrating that the rules can cope with much larger games than the usual 24-pt force actions (in this case 400 Lakota taking on 120 US Cavalry) and are also readily tweaked to give a bit more period feel and better reflect the tactics of two very different opponents.

There’s quite a few photos floating around t’interweb, so I’ll just post one here to give a flavour of it

An overview of the table: 12’ x 6’ with Reno starting his charge into the village bottom left, Custer well advanced along the bluffs middle right and Benteen bringing up the packs bottom right.

Figures almost entirely 28mm Foundry, tipis from Acheson Design, other terrain from Last Valley and Treefellas.

I noticed that game when all the pictures began to roll out FB etc on the day. It looked really fab  :-*

A great idea too.

Then when the Partizan vids from Chris Breese and Alex from Storm of Steel came out is became quickly apparent that this game was something special- like so many of the games at Partizan on the Ground!

I agree with Miltiades. Great stuff!  So how did Custer do in your replay?

Beautiful table and figures. I too would like to know how your game went and see more photos. Are there any AAR’s of the game? I’m also interested in your mods to the rules for this conflict.

Thanks for all the positive comments. I’ll try and upload a few more photos at the weekend, there’s an AAR and photos on the FB ‘MWWBK’ group, for those that use FB, as well as a file of the rule adaptions we used.

Game was run over a very leisurely 4-5 hours with an largely historical outcome though both Reno (killed by the first shot of the game) and Crazy Horse were casualties. Custer’s battalion went down fighting and Benteen was able to extricate about 3 battered companies at the end.

Great fun, maybe a refight of the Rosebud next year, but for that I need a load of scouts.

Yes, please, more pictures here for those of us who don't FB.  And the rules modifications, here, too, if you please?
