CRISIS POINT VI - Andreivia (Dawn of Freedom)

Just been going through some photos and realised I hadn't posted anything about Sunday's game at Crisis Point VI. So I thought I better remedy that situation.

So here goes, better late than never!

The British Forces in Tcherbevan occupy the Old Fort on the outskirts of the city

The British deploy forward elements to cover the approaches to the Old Fort. Bolsheviks advance past the Grain Warehouse in the distance and take heavy casualties from the British MG's.

Andreivian Police occupy the Ministry building on the main square

Random event card results in a roll of 38 (Faltering Morale). A member of the British MG Team fails his morale test and is immediately panicked. A disastrous roll on the Panic Table results in the figures exiting the board. 

British forces keep watch from the Old Fort after hearing rumours of Arabs in the fields around the city

It wasn't long before the rumours came true!

A surprise attack from outside the city resulted in one rifleman lost before they could return fire and stop the incursion

British advance to halt the Arabs

Meanwhile after the initial losses the Bolsheviks continue their advance towards the Main Square supported by a Armoured Car.

The Andreivian Police attack the building held by the Bolsheviks with supporting fire from the roof of the Ministry building

After brutal close combat the Andreivian Police were forced to withdraw but not before inflicting heavy casualties

The forward elements of the British come under mortar fire from the English Church

The Armoured Car is hit several times and is destroyed. One crewman manages to escape the burning wreckage

British forces advance to take the English Church and force the Bolshevik Mortar Team to retreat.

Another random event resulted in a roll of 70 (Suicidal Rifleman) which saw one British Rifleman move three actions towards the nearest known enemy and engage them in close combat. As you can see he lived to tell the tale.

Unfortunately at this point the camera on my phone decided to crash so I was unable to take any more photos!!!!

The game continued with the Bolsheviks assaulting the Ministry buildings and successfully driving the Andreivian Police out but they took heavy casualties leaving only 4 Bolshevik infantrymen on the table with a large British force heading to retake the Ministry. By the end of Sunday Tcherbevan was safely back in British hands, but for how long?

A thoroughly enjoyable days gaming with a great opponent, Ron controlling the Bolsheviks. Thanks Oh Mighty Oracle of Andreivia (AKA Richard C) for organising another great Crisis Point event and it will always be one of the highlights of my gaming year. 


  1. Great photos and report. Nice to see what went on on the Tcherbevan table. Great to see the Garford-Putilov in action too.

    Cheers, Andy

    1. Thanks Andy, yes Ron had a lot of fun with the Garford-Putilov especially which way to point it :-)
