The Spanish Civil War

The Spanish Civil War – Playing the Period

¡No Pasarán! Spanish Civil War in the Journal I’m not going to write much here – not yet. This is just a holding page, waiting for me to get round to filling in some more background. Suffice to say I play the Spanish Civil War as a skirmish period – the same as I do

The Ford at El Rio Rojo, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm We decided to return to sun-kissed Spain this week, with an attack and defence game set in the Spanish Civil War. Just for a laugh we had the Anarchist militia doing the attacking, and the Nationalist regulars holding the line. Actually, they had to hold a ford

The Bridge at La Mesa Verde, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week we’re off to sunny Spain, Y viva Espana! There were two reasons for this. First, I needed some pictures of Spanish Civil War figures for an article in Charles Grant’s Wargamers’ Annual, and second, Lindsay Bailey, who normally plays fantasy games wanted to try out

Skirmish at Bellavista, 1936

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week, three of us played a Chain of Command game, set near the start of the Spanish Civil War. The idea was, a detachment from the anarchist Durutti Column was charged with seizing the village of Bellavista, while another column of Falangists was heading there too.

The Fight for San Nicolas, 1936

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week we were off to sunny Spain, and an early war clash between the Government security forces and a mixed bag of Falangists and rebel soldiers. This was a straightforward Chain of Command encounter game, using the Chain of Command Espana period variant to the main rules.

The Drive on Valdemoro, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week it was just Bart and I, so we opted for a simple and small Chain of Command game set in the Spanish Civil War. It was an attack and defend scenario, with the Republicans attacking and the Rebels on the defensive. The objective was the

La Muralla, 1938

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm I found my self in Orkney this week, and so I went along to the local club, where the guys were playing a Chain of Command game set during the Spanish Civil War. Forewarned about this, I threw a box of lead and scenery into the car

Pueblo Tranquilo, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This week we were off to sunny Spain. Quite a few people weren’t at the club (it’s the Edinburgh Festival), so this week it was just Peter and I, playing a small Spanish Civil War game on a 6×4 foot table. It was a “Patrol” scenario, with

The Battle for Jamon Serrano, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm It finally happened. Chris Henry and I had been planning to play this game for weeks, but each time emergency child-minding duty got in the way. this week though, we finally got to play the game. We both have Spanish Civil War figures, but for this game

Fight for Tres Cantos, 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm My old sparring partner Dougie Trail was in town this Thursday, and so we celebrated by staging a small Spanish Civil War game using Chain of Command. Rather, we used CoC and its variant – CoC Espana. This was a small meeting engagement in a small village

Battle for Cojonazos (2), 1937

The Spanish Civil War, Chain of Command, 28mm This was the continuation of last week’s game – a real hum dinger set in a little Spanish village during the early days of the Spanish Civil War. Joe and I played the good guys (he had Security Forces while I had International Brigade), while Alan, Gyles
