So 2 weeks prior to Game 1 posted….Alan, Rob, Robert and I visited the Hutt Club taking along some Naps for a game.
I had an idea for a game…….got there and changed the set up. Stoopid. I told ladz after game when I have one of those ideas…you know to tell me its stoopid before we start!
So rather than playing across the table…we played down it….and I increased the number of units for each side as well. I must fight the desire for ever larger games!!
Below we have Bavarians and Russians at one end. Alan had bought along his newly painted Victrix Bavarians. Being not allowed into his office for a couple of years due to earthquake damage and the plague that goes on and on and… has really allowed Al to focus on painting armies…darn that man!
And at the other end of the table we have the Frenchie’s with Robert having those on the left and Rob on the right!
Shot through my Russkie’s to Roberts French at the far end. It was a rush to reach the centre of table where woods and village was!
Alans newly to Battle Bavarians. As ever..wonderful paint job.
Now these are Perry plastic Bavarians. The enlightened among you will know the Perry’s do not(well yet anyway) make plastic Bavarian cavalry…this is Alan playing with heads…adding shabraque extensions etc to make units up. He’s just embarassing.
So the issue with my really bright idea is now apparent…wall to wall troops…in depth with no space for manoeuvre. A slug fest.
Robert was really aggressive….Russians eat up aggressive….especially aggressive columns charging their large batteries…yum yum.
What a mess.
So the game ended in a fairly bloody draw…..
Now one of the nice chaps have met at the Hutt Club is doing some 3D printing and I have purchased the 3 buildings below which are Team Yankee scale 15mm building and will fit in perfectly with the pre painted building have bought from Battlefront. He is also doing various tanks etc which look quite good.
So that was the 2nd visit to the Hutt club…. finding with upgraded motorways now open its only a 15 minutes drive!
Til next time…..Terry out.
