Wargaming the Spanish Civil War with Yarkshire Gamer

 

Spanish Civil War has long been a favourite here at Yarkshire Gamer and regular followers will have seen the many Project Updates and Battle Reports I've done over the years. I've always spoken of the house rules we use and the fun games we have with them. A number of people have shown interest in these, and other home brew sets we use so it was about time I put something together to show what we do.

The video above covers the basics of the rules, where they come from, what dice you need etc etc and is well worth a look before you go into the bigger Battle Report videos.


We then move into the full battle report, its long and splits into two sections but a lot of this is because I explain the rule processes as I go along before detailing examples and as the video progresses I concentrate more on the action.


So there we go hopefully the videos give you an idea of how the rules work, below is a brief summary to see if it might be your cup of tea.

  • Card Activation 
  • Random Events each turn
  • Basic move element is 6 to 10 figures
  • Figure scale approx 1 to 4
  • D10 shooting, morale rolls
  • Ammo Limits
The playsheet can be downloaded below,


If I get some interest I will put up links to examples of event cards etc

  4. Hi. I have also played SCW at 20mm. The rules being a combo of Rapid Fire, a pamphlet I picked up at a show and house rules and event cards. I would be interested in seeing your event cards. In the meantime I think I will have to go to the loft to revisit the SCW box. I might include your activation system. Cheers.
