Trench Warfare

Pictures from a game we played. Flers-Courcelette, the Somme 1916. My friend and I had to combine our New Zealand figures to make up the entire division; some 200 stands plus tanks and artillery.

Most of the tanks had broken down around turn 4 or 5.
The pictures shows a company of Kiwis that had reached the German positions relatively unscathed. Tanks of this era can be neutralised with small-arms fire, and I think from memory this unit had an operational one nearby - trench raider platoons in the van were a big plus also.
The last platoon is from my Gallipoli collection.
