Went the Day Well at Partizan

Well it is all finished and I have to say that I am at a bit of a loss on what to do as I have been living this game for the last six month, but to earth and the next project I guess, lol. But before that here is what happened.

After the recent successes for the Duke of Rutland and his Edwardite forces the day came for the attack on the city of Leicester and to drive the Socialists out of the area once and for all. It was a straightforward plan of attack the Duke had and that was an advance through the village of Evington and to capture the General Hospital which lies on the outskirts of the city itself. The Socialists had put up trench works in front of the city and out towards Evington and the surrounding area and put roadblocks on all the roads in preparation of the attack.

On the eve of the assault the Socialists instead of sitting in their trenches waiting for the Edwardites to come marching through decide that they would jump out of the trenches to the cries of the Internationale and the Red Flag and advanced to attack the Dukes forces. At the same time the Duke's forces advanced into the area to attack the Socialist positions around the Hospital.

The initial attack for the Duke's forces went well with the Laude Abbey Anglicans taking the full force of the Duke's attack. Some amazing shooting for the Duke's newly arrived Bavarian supporters cause great damage to the Anglican defences but the tide started to change. The Bavarians a victim of their own success and some rather inaccurate artillery fire from Dukes own guns caused the attack to peter out couples with a strong Socialist counter attack saw the Edwardites swept from the table and start they long retreat but to Belvoir Castle and Rutland. During the finial stages of the counter attack saw the Duke himself become victim to another one of the Edwardites  wayward artillery shells and was carried away from the field.

The city of Leicester is now safe in the hands of the Socialist Council with the Dukes forces mauled and retreating the gains of the pass few months having been lost back to the Socialists.

I has a great day and thanks to all the chaps from the Very British Civil Forum who played and especially to Mr Smillie for especially for putting on this great day. Roll on the next one.

Here are some pictures of the day and I hope you enjoy them.

    1. Thanks there Thomas and the explosion markers are rather easy to make. I use a fake tea light and then hot glue some mirco filling from an old pillow but you could use teddy bear filling. Cut into shape, tease it about a it and then spray, black or brown or grey while holding them upside down. I then spray matt varnish on them to stiffen them up a bit.
