The Germans have 4 night-fighters and various "defence resources", such as flak, searchlight, fire trucks etc. These have to be placed without knowing the objective, while the British have to preplan the bombing mission without knowing where the defences are. Then there's the annoying Mosquito, which can score points by shooting night-fighters, can suppress defences or mark the target to give the Bombers bonus points when the reach the objective.
It's a cracking game though and is a good way to fill a few hours. Well worth the £15 I paid for it. The pictures are stolen from boardgame geek as I didn't take any while we were playing.
I even managed to get a bit of painting done, mostly in the dark hours of the morning when I couldn't sleep as I felt too sick. Nine "Toxic" and 8 normal zombies have joined the ever increasing ranks of painted Zombicide figures. I quite enjoyed painting these in the dark and quiet hours as it gave my ears a chance to recover from the constant, endless chatter that the multitudinous women of this family make. There were 7 of them here on Saturday evening and they can all seemingly talk without needing to breath in, ever! They spent all day together, yet still managed to talk non-stop all evening. My ears were bleeding by 8pm and they kept on talking until past midnight.
Today would be a nice, quiet day as they have left but they are digging up the road outside the house now, so it's a bit noisy with tarmac strippers and pneumatic drills going. So today I shall mostly be wearing my headphones. Have fun and I'll catch you later
