Back of Beyond Big Game











This turned out to be a bit of a disaster in more ways than one. I overcooked the defences for the Bolsheviks, making it virtually impossible for the coalition forces to achieve their objective. I also made some soggy tactical decisions in the game including driving my Garford Pultilov over a wooden bridge with the inevitable result, thanks to a double six on the breakdown dice.

In the end it was a tactical wipeout for the Americans, French and British but a strategic draw if the relative points totals are taken into consideration, with the Bolsheviks taking just over fifty percent casualties compared to the less than fifty percent inflicted on the counter revolutionary forces of capitalist imperialist repression.

Anyway, here are some pictures...
