Spearhead Trial

 Introduction  These are pictures of a trial game we played on 30 March 2002 using the "Spearhead" ruleset.  Spearhead, by Arty Conliffe, of the New York Wargamers' Association, is designed for fast play WW2 Division level battles.  Each base represents a platoon of tanks, infantry or half a battery of artillery.  The emphasis is on command and control, and the combat system is somewhat simplified for playability.  Nevertheless, the rules allow for a reasonably accurate outcome and a full-scale division level combat would probably take an afternoon to play.
