Poland Invaded!

The next game in our complete replaying of WW2 was the invasion of Poland.

Ben played an Confident Trained infantry company and David played. Fearless Veteran Infantry company.

All was going well until the StuG’s failed to tack care of the Mini tanks!

Also the Polish flank attack special rule meant I had to hold both objectives with infantry stopping me from setting a full attack. When it came, 12 stands of fearless infantry swept the Germans from the objective.

Product review: Bishop

I like wacky ww2 gear. Trains, pak40 RSO’s and now these little gems.

I plan on adding these guns to artillery bases and using them as 25 pounders.

Over all a fun little build. Historically these vehicles were another desert fail, being too restricted by its poor armoured box, the gun lacked elevation. Making it’s gun crew dig ditches or embankments to give it the elevation to act as artillery.

Ben and David start World War Two.

This year we are going to fight as much of ww2 as we can. Starting in Finland and ending in Berlin. Each fortnight we will fight a new part of the war. Just because we can and because we have played a whole year of the desert and now wish to mix it up a bit.

The Fins desperately try to hold on to a small village by a frozen river.

Then mission was breakthrough. David as the fins, chose to leave me with the whole left side as he wished to put as much in the vill as possible. In the end my flank attack, though failing, pulled too much from the river objective. Helped by some uneven dice, the Soviet attack gained a foothold through the centre.

Beefing up the BF battlefield in a box

A little while before V4 hit town we did a ‘how to make a desert table’ article. Since that time Battlefront have released a desert basing kit.

Let’s upgrade these battlefield in a box items with this kit and see what kind of results we get.

So here are the results. I’m very surprised how cool this terrain has turned out. I did all this in just an afternoon.

The new battlemat looks great too!

ETC results are in… and the winner is…

1st place: England

2nd: Poland

3rd: USA

4th: Australia

Congratulations to England on their ETC victory.

Well played team Australia! A very successful campaign!
