What better way to introduce the first lot of my assembled plastic Germans?
Please bear with me, as I post this with a headache and listening to Rush ( \m/, by the way! Wish I were seeing them this evening :( )
Command squad L-R: runner 1, medic, horse master, officer, wagon driver, runner 2
Squad 1: note the kneeling MG-er on the L and the pointing MG-er behind. Sniper front R :D Had to be done!!
And of course, the guys who will be shooting at them, probably?
My 101st Airbornes! Instead of faffing about with rank insignia, I've colour-coded the rims of the bases: blue=command, white=medic, red=supt weapons and brown=privates
For some reason this guy looks absolutely terrifying!
I think I need to repaint the faces, at least give them eyes... they give me nightmares and haunt my soul just now...
Last Night: Disposable Heroes, Kirrie Club.
My paras dropped in... on turn 3 so pretty near the end of the game then...
Paras eventually arrived. I managed to get these guys up on the crast of the hill, set up the MG and fire at a mortar, scoring one kill, before end of game...
My mortar team landed off table :( so this is all I had. Basically I dropped, and immediately came under fire from Dale's 81mm mortar, pinning my rifle fireteam, meanign they couldn't move, so really the only activation I got was to move my MG onto the hill to drop-down and set up. Dale was kind enough however to let me take a shot anyway.
Don't think I'll be getting Disposable Heroes anytime soon :P Too complicated and the layout is atrocious. If anyone can suggest good (preferably cheap) WWII skirmish rules? I know Gordon reccommended Force on Force, anyone know how detailed that is for WWII?
