Are You Wildcat Or Whale?


Hit the beaches or defend the hills with Robert Avery's latest pdf scenario booklet for "I Ain't Been Shot, Mum!"

An extensive history of the first month of Operation Shingle, the Allied invasion of Italy at Anzio in January 1944, accompanied by twenty-one unique scenarios for "I Ain't Been Shot, Mum!" including attacks, counter-attacks, encounter battles, desperate defences, fighting retreats, and ambushes!

Players will encounter a huge variety of troop types: line infantry, Guardsmen, Parachute infantry (on both sides), Luftwaffe ground troops (a penal battalion at that), Rangers and more. Fight them over terrain as testing as anything encountered in any theatre of the war: flat ground, muddy ground, wadis...Anzio has it all!

Each scenario contains a background history, maps, a full game briefing, and a full briefing for each player. Simply print out the pages you need, unpack your figures, set up the table, and away you go! You can see sample pages by clicking here.
