Campaign Game Two






 George kindly agreed to command the German forces for the game via Zoom. A combination of German firepower and some less than kind dice rolls and a couple of tactical gaffs on my part saw the British once again compelled to withdraw and concede the field to the Germans.

Replacements will certainly be required for the next encounter.

I am currently painting some more 20mm Germans in winter gear, a lot of my recent games have been 1945 encounters and I think my summer clad Germans have been affected by the cold and coming second, that's my excuse anyway. Perhaps some warmer clothes will improve their fighting.

  3. As others have said, very nice work on that camouflage. I enjoy a campaign and the way it makes you think beyond the current game. While you may make some mistakes, often you have a chance to learn from them and put those lessons into action in a following game.

    1. Thank you Mark. Although their squads are small Volksgrenadiers can still pack a punch I hope to do better against them in the next outing.

  4. Great looking figs Phil. Playing a CoC campaign really does make you concede ground rather than lose troops

  8. Lovely paint job Phil...
    I seem to remember that the Germans tended to come second in their winter clothes as well...

    All the best. Aly
