Square Bashing The Battle of Amiens

Proposal for BAD game Thu 9th August 2018
The Battle of Amiens, which began on 8 August 1918, was the opening phase of the Allied offensive later known as the Hundred Days Offensive that ultimately led to the end of the First World War.

I propose that we mark this by utilising Scenario 4 on the back page 64 of the Square Bashing Army List Book.

If you are interested in taking part and/ or can provide relevant figures then please let me know ASAP with details and composition of your LW British & German armies. Depending on this response we will run 1, 2 or 3 tables of the Peter Pig scenario exactly as written played side by side.

    1. That’s great Peter. Please let me have a list of any spare British or German units after your muster for the Scenario . The aim is to replicate the Scenario RAW multiple times so we will need to provide loaner armies.

  1. I’ll give it a go but I’ll need some guidance as I’ve only played SB a couple of times a long time ago.

    1. Noting Bob’s point & having discussed this with some of the key players/ army owners I think it’s more viable to postpone it until after Britcon, As I’m away touring Ypres during the following week I now propose Thu 23rd August 2018.
      Andy, this will give us time to fit in a gentle game introductory game of Square Bashing if you would like.

  2. Thanks to Ray for organising last night and to Paul for such a good spirited game. If the other half of my army had turned up it may have been very different result.
    Interesting to see such a wide variance in results over the 4 tables with the same forces and terrain allotted to each player.
