Chain of Command

Attack on Warlaing 1940

Second World War, Chain of Command, 28mm This game, played at home, had to correspond to all Covid restrictions, so this were a little limiting. Still, I was able to play facemask-to-facemask as it were, and this is the result. My friend Lindsay wanted to field her 1940 Germans, so I dug out my early

Beyond the Matanikau, 1942

The Second World War, Chain of Command, 28mm There’s still no sign of the Orkney club opening in the foreseeable future, so instead we held another game in my house. This time we headed off to the South-West Pacific, for a clash set on the north coast of Guadalcanal. This was a “Big CoC” game,

Lockdown Painting 2

The Second World War, 28mm  Just before lockdown started, there was some talk in the Orkney club of using Chain of Command for the Pacific Theatre. I really like CoC, but until now I’ve stuck to Normandy. It took the collection of a box of jungle terrain of mine I’d left at the Edinburgh club

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.

Return to La Cambe, 1944

Probe at La Cambe, 1944

The Second World War, Chain of Command, 28mm This game is actually the opening scenario from the “pint-sized campaign 29, Let’s Go!  from the Two Fat Lardies. It all centres round the US 29th Division in the days after landing at Omaha Beach, and the drive inland towards Isigny.  In this game, an American probe

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.
