I had a bit of a yearning to get Trench Hammer out over the weekend, and even played a quick game on Sunday evening, which I failed to report here. But I played another one thins evening, so that's what you get.
I thought I'd try some of the ideas from the Trench Hammer Expansion Pack, specifically the opposed die roll assault combat. I also tried the fixed damage effects which I know are likely to be imported int the second edition of Trench Hammer from the more advanced WWII version, Hammer Of Democracy.
I played the basic strongpoint assault scenario - a British platoon attacking an MG position protected by two rifle squads. This is an easy game to set up and is always fun.
I'm really rather looking forward to s second edition of this game - I know the Hammer system has moved on and matured since the original Trench Hammer was produced, and it would be nice to see it updated.
