HITT WW1 British v Germans - Big Push Part 1

The forces involved for our HITT WW1 'The Big Push' game.  Set on the Western Front, the British have a major advantage in forces and need to punch a hole in the German Lines.  Two Trench Lines and then onto the village beyond.

With this game we are also using objective markers, eight in total, each worth 5 victory points.  Also we'll be using the full works, Barrages, Poison Gas, Aeroplanes for both sides and Tanks.  Points are marked for all the elements at the end of the force listings below.

No doubt it's going to take a few sittings, so I'll update the blog after each session.  Game on!
