Crossfire Scenarios that are complete and play tested


Play Test of Mac’s Crossfire Missions v2

CFM2-24 End Game

Jamie Wish and I had a play test of Crossfire Missions v2. Mac’s automatically generated Crossfire Missions provided another great game of Crossfire. In what turned out to be a fighting withdrawal, I managed to blunt the attack of Jamie’s Germans and withdraw the majority of my Soviet force.

If anybody wants to try a nice little scenario with a reinforced company a side, you could try refighting this game. I’ve included the orders of battle with victory conditions of each side to enable you to do this.

Big Eye of the Tiger – A Crossfire Scenario with Barrie Lovell

Big Eye of the Tiger Map A 6'x6'

I’ve been talking to Barrie Lovell about the Eye of the Tiger Crossfire Scenario. Barrie made a few changes to the scenario. Well, a lot of changes. He increased the forces involved and created a table based on satellite imagery of the outskirts of Tuckums, which includes a factory estate and a railway line and station.

I have turned Barrie’s description of his game into a Crossfire Scenario, including a map for a 6’x6′ table, so others can give it a try. I then went further and (1) added some new special rules and (2) provided a set of

Jungle Hell – An Incoming Scenario by Barrie Lovell

Jungle Hell Table

“Jungle Hell – The Battle of LZ Tusk and Hill 731” is a scenario in which the US 173rd Airborne meet the NVA 174th Regiment. Barrie Lovell wrote it for Incoming! / Vietnam and published it on the Grunt! website around 2000. As Grunt! has disappeared I have republished it here. All words and images are Barrie’s.

Bloody Weekend at Villiers – A Crossfire Mini-Campaign

Sheffler 02 - View from the south

Brett Simpson ran a Crossfire mini-campaign over a weekend. Four games were played in total: two Meeting Engagements and Two Bridgeheads. Saturday’s scenario was a Meeting Engagement with the objective of taking the rail hotel (Provincial Beige Building). Sunday used the same table layout, but switched to a Bridgehead. This simulates a counter-attack by whichever force lost on Saturday. There were four games because the players swapped side on each day. Brett wrote up two of the games.

The Battle of Long Tan – An Incoming Scenario by Matt Spooner

Map Battle of Long Tan

The Battle of Long Tan is one of the most famous battles of the Vietnam War, fought by Australian infantry against overwhelming odds. This is a Incoming! scenario by Matt Spooner and published on the new deceased Grunt! website, probably around 2000. Because Grunt! has disappeared I thought I’d republish the scenario here for the benefit of the Crossfire community. All words are Matt’s.

Holding the Fort – A Crossfire Scenario and Battle Report

Holding the Fort 1 - A rough map of the table

Brett Simpson sent through another small Crossfire Scenario and battle report. This time for “Holding the Fort” where a small German force had to fend off British troops and French resistance forces. It is tiny, there is only one German platoon (although they get a Panther) and two British platoons, which illustrates you can have a good game with Crossfire without a lot of figures.

Operation Whitehall / Assault on Chez Patrick – A Crossfire Battle Report

Operation Whitehall 1: A rough map of the table

Brett Simpson has kindly been sharing photos of his Crossfire kit as he builds it up. He is doing some nice scratch building for his scenery.

This time, however, Brett shared the battle report from his first Crossfire game. Called the “Assault on Chez Patrick” after the British objective or “Operation Whitehall” after the British operational code name. Most words are Brett’s.

Stalingrad – A Crossfire Scenario

Crossfire Stalingrad Map

The Crossfire rules includes a Stalingrad scenario. I’ve reproduced it here mainly because I wanted a map that was scaled to match my 3″x3″ Generic Building Sectors rather than the 4″x4″ sectors of the original. I’ve taken the liberty to embellish the scenario a bit.

Seestrasse Sector in “Operation Crossfire” – The Scenario

Seestrasse Sector Map in Operation Crossfire

Here is the scenario should you want to play the Seestrasse Sector of Operation Crossfire. It is pretty much all the work of Nikolas Lloyd – the genius architect of Operation Crossfire. I have simply collated material from various emails and put them into my scenario format. I’ll post a Battle Report shortly.

Crossfire 2 Foot Participation Games at SELWG

2x2 Scenario brochure page 2 The Woods

Last year Dick Bryant published Six Small 2’x2′ Crossfire Scenarios. I’ve played four of them and really like them. Each offers a good tactical challenge but is fast to play taking no more than one hour. Dick intended them as a way to introduce novices to Crossfire. I think they work well for this and hence they are a good option for taking to a show as a participation game(s). So at SELWG 2013 I’m going to give it a go.

Moroccan Knives – A Crossfire Scenario in the Spanish Civil War

Table Moroccan Knives

This scenario came about because Andrew Coleby wanted to try a Spanish Civil War for Crossfire, or more specifically my variant called Fuego Cruzado. We only get a couple of hours to play when Andrew comes over so the game had to be small. Aside from keeping the forces small I also thought I’d experiment with a small table and lots of terrain; like the 2 Foot City but in the countryside. So this game has small companies facing each other on a 4’x3′ table. The title, “Moroccan Knives”, is because the militia were generally terrified of the Moroccans and

Ring of Iron – A Crossfire Scenario in the Spanish Civil War

Table Ring of Iron

A scenario for Fuego Cruzado – my variant of Crossfire for the Spanish Civil War – set in the Basque Country. The Nationalists are trying to penetrate the “Ring of Iron” around Bilbao.
