Battlegroup

Post by Ken1967 » Sat Apr 28, 2018 7:26 am

Anyone playing, or interested in Battlegroup?

I've picked up the rules, market garden supplement and about to rebase my FOW troops - I'll be playing in 15mm with a couple of others locally.

Interested yes, player base locally? Unknown

It's got some really nice mechanics and a bit of variabilty in the number of activations (the reactions are nice) and the variety in fire types and spotting to see targets. The Battle rating is rather cool too not knowing when they're going to break :

Flames of War ain' t giving much these days so I'll be interested to see what you get up to with it. As like many I've got a pile of 15mm not seeing any action.

cheers,

Tas.

I would like to try it in due course.

For the time being though, I have been happy collecting all the books, lovely publications.

regards
Mathew

A bit of threadomancy.

I play Battlegroup and it is my favourite system. I play it in 20mm.

Not as involved as Chain of Command but does a great job of capturing WWII compared to WW2 Napoleonics (FOW) or Bolt Action (I also play Bolt Action in 28mm).

However opponents are pretty scarce especially as my main one has relocated to Europe and I only know one other player in my town (Lonnie in Tassie).
