Tsaritsyn AAR

I recently found these pictures from a game I ran at Origins a few years ago. The scenario represents the White right flank attack. The White artillery started game with very good shooting. Their cavalry moved to the attack while the infantry moved forward as fast as they could. It was a fun game, and regardless of how it appears, I do not put an armored train in all of my RCW games.

The mighty Red armored train rolls on; and picks up a hit from the White artillery.

The Whites advance down the table.

The White cavalry moves past the armored train.

Long view of the table.
The pictures were taken by one of the players, Peter Bogdasarian. The Reds held on and won this one. I really enjoy the Red Actions system; it models the period very well, is easy to learn, and if the scenario is set up correctly, provides a resolution in a reasonable amount of time.


  1. Just love these pics Mike as they will eventually make me dig out my half finished one made with the Boer War in mind.

  2. Battle looks like it was a lot of fun to fight: great game-map (looks like you brought in some of your backyard and put it on the table!), and lots of action in different terrain types going on. Keep up the good work.

  3. Great looking battle, the pics are excellent, looks like a lot of fun was had by all.

  4. Wait for the next one, armored trains and gunboats dueling on the shores of Lake Baikal.
