Zero Hour, The Hill.

This week at club saw me and Orange Dave having another crack at Dave’s Great War rule set Zero Hour, these are still a work in progress. We decided to play one of are favourite scenario which we’ve used for a lot of different rules set, The Hill, one player holds a fortified area (the Hill) while the other attack it using double the amount of troops.

Here’s some pictures.

After heavy shelling and small arm’s fire the hill is cleared of defenders except for the high command.

As my Storm Troopers move into the fortifications the allied reserves move in lead by a unit of Australians.

A very fun and interesting game, I think the rules are coming along nicely and I think Dave will be putting it out for some more general play testing in the not so distant future, I’ll post up here when he does, so watch this space ;o).

Cheers, Steve.

    How many times have we fought over this hill eh? In fact – it’s just like the real Great War in that respect – senseless slaughter over the same old ground.
