On Thursday I went to Hugh Wilson’s for our latest game. This 28mm Back of Beyond game designed by Dave O’Brien was set along the Trans-Siberian Railway. Colin Jack, Dave O’Brien and Hugh Wilson provided the figures. Hugh Wilson built the excellent terrain. We were using the Setting the East Ablaze rules. We had 7 players at the game controlling Red, White, Czech, Mongolian, Chinese Nationalist, Chinese Bandit and Japanese factions. I controlled the heroic Red faction.

At the end of the evening the game was still very far from decided – my Reds had not suffered a single casualty. So it will probably last for at least another 2 evenings. The next game will be in 2 weeks but I will miss that game as I will be on holiday. We will be making some changes to the rules for our future games.
