Following the events of last year, I have decided to make more of the opportunities I get and do more with my time than I did last year.
So, when Nathan invited me around for a game on Sunday, I went along ready to play another game of Chain of Command. This time it was a 1940 game, with the dastardly Huns attacking the gallant (newly painted) British infantry. Nathan had a German platoon of 4 squads, commanded by 2 senior leaders. Supporting them he had a 50mm mortar, a medic and a Stug III. I had a British platoon with 3 smaller squads, again lead by 2 senior leaders. Support was a Boys AT rifle team, a 2" mortar, a Matilda II and a FOO with a 3" mortar battery on call.
When the mortars fired again on the next phase, Nathan decided that the attack was over and pulled his men back. Victory to the gallant defenders of the realm, who held out despite being outgunned and outnumbered. A great game, with the result swinging from a German victory to a crushing defeat, thanks largely to the mortars. Thanks for the game Nathan, it was a blast.
It also saw the blooding of my first painting for 2014, who won despite being used in their first game ever.
Anyway, thats it again. Its 1.40am and I am going to bed. Keep rolling those dice.
