It was a game of two halves, one half could not seem to hit a barn door at point blank range, me of course and Dave who must have ate 5's and 6's for breakfast and then proceed to spit them out when dicing to fire. My 5's and 6's appeared in my Command Dice rolls, it did however give me a stock of Chain of Command dice which came in really useful to negate some of the morale checks without which the game would have been over a lot sooner.
A pictorial narrative of sorts follows, which will I hope convey the unfolding action
|The Germans Take It To Church|
|Tommy Takes Up Residence In Shrapnel Villa|
|A perfect Place For His Lewis Gun Teams To Support The Advance|
|The Rifle Grenadier Section Take Up Position In An Abandoned Trench|
|With The Support Of The Rifle Grenade And Lewis Sections The British Advance On The Right|
|A Brave German With An Anti-Tank Rifle Attempts To Halt The Tank In Its Tracks, He failed Miserably|
|The Remnants Of The German Force Retreat|
We intend to do a similar thing that we did with the Seven Years War earlier in the year and play the same action with different rules, next up will be Bolt Action followed by Through The Blood and the Mud rules.
Off for a break later in the week, back in a week or two.
