Red Flags and Iron Crosses (Tarred and Featherstoned) - New rules added

When I sat down to think about the next play-test of the rules, I realised that I needed to add some additional rules to deal with:
  • The specialist role of engineers on the battlefield (e.g. laying and removing minefields, mounting assaults on prepared positions)
  • The specialist weapons deployed by engineers (e.g. flamethrowers, assault demolition charges like satchel charges and Bangalore torpedoes)
  • Barbed wire
  • Night fighting (particularly the effect of restricted visibility on movement and weapon ranges
I used Lionel Tarr's and Donald Featherstone's rules as a starting point for my additions to the rules as well as information from the British Army Wargame (1956), which is available from John Curry; I hope to play-test this most recent draft of the rules at some point over the next few days.
