Chain of Command Europe 1940 League

by J. L. & I. R. Production

 With the new set of platoon rule published recently by the Two Fat Lardies, entitled Chain of Command, Tring Wargames Club Members have enthusiastically taken to them like a duck to water. 

Over half the members are playing these rules in all scales from 10mm to 28mm. As most players are in a frenzy, Jim Lucas and myself (Ian Ransome) banged our heads together and proposed a multi league for all who are interested. 

The response has been an overwhelming yes, so Jim and I have gone ahead and organised this league. Each player will play a series of six games over the period of the league. 

Each player plays the scenarios from the rule book number one to six. Three games will be played using the Allied Platoon Force and supports from 1940. The other three will be with the Axis Platoon Forces of 1940. 

Either Jim or myself will allot terrain. Players will only know which scenario they will be playing before the night, but not who is the defender or attacker. These will be decided on the night. Players should arrive with the core platoon force of their choice plus any supports. 

The games can be played in any scale from 10mm to 25mm. Hopefully both players will play with the same scale on the same table. 

League points will be awarded to each player as follows, we will use the same objectives as the book; 

A victory = 3 points

A draw = 1 point

A loss = 0 points

We will start the league table when the results of round one have been completed. Once this has happened we hope to update the website via Colin. As for pictures we will have to find a cameraman!!!! More later. 

Jim and I hope to start the league from Friday 6th December 2013 and flow into March 2014. We also hope everyone will participate, the more the merrier. If there is an odd number of players, don’t worry you will play either Jim or myself, but we will not count points into the league table. 

Hopefully by the time you read this report Colin will have a list of players entering the league. Jim and I would like to thank everyone for their support and hope that you will enjoy this little bit of nonsense. 

Last of all our thanks go to everyone at Lard Island for producing a set of WW2 skirmish rules. Without them we would have not touched WW2 skirmishing with any type of pole.
