I decided something a bit different was in order and went for the Civil War in the Russian Far East.
The story of Baron Von Ungern Sternberg and his invasion and occupation of Mongolia in the 1920's I the sort of story that people wouldn't credit as fiction. A psychopathic Baltic Baron and leader of the Russian Asiatic Cossack division who took his men plus odds and ends of the retreating Siberian Russian army into Mongolia where he was hailed as the Buddhist God of War and the reincarnation of Genghis Khan. Raising the Mongol tribes and defeating two Chinese armies he occupied Mongolia and commenced a brutal and bizarre reign of terror before taking his rag tag army to invade Russia where it was promptly ambushed and defeated in a forest just over the border.
This seemed the ideal battle for me to put on for our small group of gamers.
With the roll of a six it was now time for the Whites to feel some pain as the Sopwith Camel strafed their cavalry virtually destroying another units of mongol cavalry.
