Midsummer Mortification

I can't believe it's taken this long! Apologies all. There've been many games and much hobbycraft in the last few months.

My Blitzkrieg forces have expanded to battalion-sized forces of British, French and Polish, with a staggering 4,000+ points of German armour and artillery coming up too. The few small games I've played have been seriously fun, so I'm happy =]

Here are some pictures of "The Battle of Wadi Umbek", a search-and-seizure mission for Force on Force played a week or two ago.
 The table layout
 Starting positions
 The Americans might be playing with bigger dice, but with rolls like this I don't think the locals need to worry!
 The Hadrian armour takes a hit from American support.
 The Hadrian M113 Fire-Support goes up in flames as the whole platoon focusses fire on it.
 The General and his guards....
 A storm of bullets later, just the general all on his lonesome...
 Alpha team storm the compound, but the general has already got away,
 Charlie getting stonked by enemy off-table mortar fire 3-4 turns in a row. Blood all over the walls, yeech.
Final dispositions as Alpha team catches up with the general and seizes him in a bitter bout of housefighting.

Until next time folks!
