Greetings fellow gamers.
On reading materials provide by Rob and his enthusiasm for setting up a BoB campaign, I thought I would dig out my ANZAC’s and Turks. These have been languishing in a box, unloved and partially painted for quiet a while and press them into action.
Last Fridays zoom meeting provided some further impetus. I have purchased the rule set “Setting the East ablaze” and with a bit of imagination I could see my plucky Kiwi’s and Johnny Turk becoming allies as the war has ended and they wander
off to the Baku region in search of fame and fortune.
My Bolshevik Army will comprise of 10 Infantry units - 12 figures strong each; 5 Ordinary Infantry units (2 in Greatcoats), 2 elite Infantry, 2 units of sailors and 1 unit unit of Siberian Rifles. These will be supported by 5 Lewis gunners, 3 Maxim MGs and 2 artillery pieces. I have 6 cavalry units (8 figures strong), one of which are Lancers. These will be supported by 2 Tachankas. The whole army will be supported by an armoured car (not sure the Austin I have acquired will fight for the Whites or Reds yet), a FT-17 Tank and a Nieuport 17 Fighter plane.
My white Army will have 6 Infantry units (12 strong) including a dismounted Kuban Cossack unit supported by 4 Lewis gunners and 2 Maxim MGs and 2 Artillery guns. The White Cavalry has 4 units (8 Figures each) - all Cossacks. the Army will be supported by tank (MK IV - it really should be a MK V) and yet purchased armoured car and plane.
