Looked like a fun game. I like the terrain and barbed wire, and the blind cards' backing.

Thanks, it was good fun, we are just stumbling a little with the rules. The terrain was mainly made for 15mm Square Bashing, but it fits with 20mm as well. I made the barbed wire years ago, it is just some shop bought barbed wire wrapped around small lengths of copper wire mounted on mdf bases. I can't take credit for the blinds, they were sourced from Sidney Roundwood's blog (well worth Googling for if you don't know it), all I did was print them and laminate them!

Nice little report, TM&B are great and worth persevering with, you are correct, knowing how to use your Big Men is usually the key to success and the correct use of tactics of course.

We are trying out the TM&B/Chain of Command hybrid on Monday.

I like your barbed wire stands. Very original.

Thanks Tony, they were reasonably easy to make. It's just a small strip of mdf with upright copper wires holding shop bought scaled barbed wire. I made them years ago for 15mm Square Bashing, but they work well for 20mm as well. I have seen so many barbed wire models that are just circular (which was rarely used in the First War), I had to build my own proper fences!
