After weeks of hard battle, bloodshed and over 30 different engagements the fate of Cassino hangs in the balance. The score stands at 10 - 7 to the Axis, but there are 6 points up for grabs on the last day. Will the Axis secure a Major Victory against the Allies halting their advance or will the Allies turn it around and land a tactical victory against the Wehrmacht? It all hangs in the balance.
The final battle will be split into 3 theatres. Bring your Ace, his company and anything else you have. We will field as much as reasonably possible!
The Axis and Allies will also have High Commanders that will have access to reserves, bombardments and Aircraft.
Doors open at 10.30. Games begins at 11.15 am
Good luck Captains!

One of the most exciting aspects of the upcoming Cassino campaign is creating your own warrior model called an Infantry Ace. During the campaign, you follow your warrior’s story as he fights his way through the bloody battlefields of Monte Cassino.
Your Infantry Ace is a company command team, replacing your regular first in command. He retains the ratings and weapons of the team replaced. He is also a warrior (p78 of the rulebook).
As your Infantry Ace fights alongside your company he can earn medals which more importantly unlock new abilities.
At the end of every game you play your warrior can earn experience for the following ;
- 1 xp for playing a game
- 1 xp if he is not destroyed and is still on the table
- 1 xp if you win the game
- 1 xp if your force destroys at least one enemy platoon
(you can earn a max 4 xp per game) You can keep chart of your progress on the Infantry Aces Chart found HERE. We also have spare copies printed off in the shop. For every 6 xp you collect you get a medal and a new ability. There are 10 different progression trees to chose from, but when you chose a skill set you are stuck on that set unless you select Jack of all trades.
There is more information on each skill in the Cassino book. I will leave my copy in the store when the campaign begins for people to have a look.
As you can see from the progression chart you can make your ace anything from an assault monster to a master of defensive strategy. Seeing peoples choices will be interesting.
Lastly for anyone that successfully keeps their Ace alive long enough to get him 24 xp and the Ace of Aces ability you get an extra little reward (as well as a kick arse warrior).
See you on the battlefield soldier!
Puppet Wars gives you insight into the lives of Puppets when no one is around to watch. It’s simple, just find the other army’s leader, and rip him. If he’s more frayed thread than stuffing, you’ve won. Start by wielding Pins and Needles to go on the offensive, or Hide Under the Bed if your enemy approaches. Animate all your friends from your Toy Box or yell Mine! to take over your opponent’s Toy Box so he has nowhere left to sew up the wounded.
Puppet Wars is a game for 2 to 4 players. This box contains enough Puppets for 2 players. Additional Puppets and Puppet Decks are sold separately. Each player begins the game with a single Animated Puppet: the Master Puppet. Over the course of the game, each Master will construct an army of animated Puppets by making use of the Work Benches scattered about the board. Puppets are small-minded creatures. They resemble their living counterparts but only have a slight memory of how to function once they become animated, and sometimes they are confused about their roles. But watch out! They’re vicious when organized into an army! Puppet Wars lets you command a Puppet Army. Your goal is to destroy the competition and protect your Master, while retaining control of those valuable Work Benches. If ever your Master is killed, or you lose control of all your Work Benches, you’ve lost… game over, no more fun.
