July's game report

The game this month was Red Actions! a Russian Civil War game run by Doug, in 6mm (or 1/285th scale). The First side to inflict 40% casualties , based on units, wins

The Reds sent 2 of their Cavalry regiments (companies to one side of the village while the other regiment went around the other side, their Tchanka (machine-gun on a wagon, think 1920's technical) parked on the hill and shot at the White infantry and mortar in the village. The Whites set up with a cavalry Regiment on either side of the village, and were going to shift one of the regiments to which ever side the Reds came around in force, leaving a covering force of a unit to hold as long as possible, which turned out to be one turn, it was charged, routed and was chased for 2 more turns before it was destroyed.

The White mortar scored a lucky first shot, retiring one squadron right off the table, then the Tchankas got on the hill and started shooting up the village and quickly eliminated the mortar unit, and then kept firing on the infantry which could not reply as the were out of range.

The whites were just too outnumbered and outgunned to win (kind of historical I guess).
