Beaten But Not Disheartened

I had a most splendid weekend at Battlefield Hobbies Daventry, taking part in the Battlegroup Campaign Weekend.
Although doing my best to prevent the Germans from holding the town of Mundenburg by losing all of my four games, the Germans held the town by one victory point. This was in no small part to the efforts of our visitors from Finland, Mikael , Juuso and ? (Sorry can't remember the name) earning almost half the campaign points.
Organiser and Battlegroup author Warwick will be posting a report on his blog Move To Contact in due course.
I would like to thank Warwick,  my opposing Generals, all the other fine chaps and Battlefield Hobbies for making it such a fabulous weekend. I hope circumstances will allow me to attend another in the future.
Here  are a few pics of the various games, you can see a few of my burning vehicles in the bottom left of the first, although you can see from the other vehicle aflame I went down fighting.

  1. I still find it hard to believe that you went to this event, seems so out of character to me. But, four defeats from four suggests it was for real...

    1. A BOF most of the time, but I can pop the odd surprise occasionally ;~)

  2. You know it was a good time when you get roughed up and still enjoyed it. Better luck next time.

    As David said, it does seem like a different experience for you. Did you have a specific reason for attending?

    1. Yes a bit odd enjoying been wupped, but that's the beauty of Battlegroup, win or lose its great fun.

      I like the rules and this was the opportunity to play four connecting games against different allied armies, making a change from the Russians, with like minded enthusiasts in a relaxed manner.

  3. Glad you enjoyed it. I did the same thing a couple of years ago and have never regretted it.

    1. Certainly did George, as Dave said not usually my thing but has I mentioned above, a great opportunity for something different to the norm.
