Lippe Crossing

This Saturday I'm running another game of Gold War Commander. The Lippe Crossing game will cover Soviet attempts to establish a bridgehead on the south side of the River Lippe, a right tributary of the Rhein just north of the Ruhr.

It should be an interesting game for a couple of reasons. One, both sides are largely made up of mechanised infantry and two, the game provides us with the opportunity to set up some of the starting positions for the Big Game that will hopefully be played later this year.

With my games room still in a mess, it's not going to be possible for me to send out scenario details in advance and have either side choose from a range of force options but I'll try and give the attacking Soviets an option on whether to take smoke ammo or other special munitions for the artillery.

Brigadier Connolly will be in charge of the British force. Colonel Sangarov will be his opponent.
