Ypres 1914

Last Sunday 26 December we held one of our monthly "long games" (usually played at night on Fridays, but this time shifted to the afternoon time, taking advantage of the Christmas holidays). Using Through the Mud and the Blood we organised a large WW I action, located in Ypres around mid-October 1914. The game involved 2 full platoon-sized forces per side together with a wide array of supporting elements (cavalry squadrons, artillery...) entering the table randomly in different turns.
