Battlegroup's WWI ?

Battlegroup's WWI ?

Postby patrokles » 09 Mar 2017

Looking for 8th Army unpainted figures in my collection with an intention to prepare them for playing "Tobruk" I found an old box fulfilled with WWI figures. It was covered by a thick layer of dust. One blow created a small "dust storm" and my first breath after that almost immediately let me feel What Indiana Jones had felt in the Well of Souls :hello: And then I suddenly realized that I can play WWI infantry fightings just using Battlegroup rules for infantry :shock: So simple to have some more good fun :clapping:
But ... to get a better feeling of historical wargaming would be necessary something more :scratch: So, I've got an idea: Would it be possible to create a small Battlegroup WWI wargaming system ... let's say with two simple infantry structures ... for the Western Front (British & Germans) ... few special rules plus the fighting mechanism from Battlegroup ? And I'm not thinking on an another book but on an article in a new issue of the Dispatches ... just for beginning ... ;)
Gentlemen,
What do you think ?

The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.
