Thanks to everyone who came along to the Club today… Some great multiplayer games were played.
We had a 6mm Middle East desert war battle using Team Yankee ruleset…
Fought between the Iraq and Iran. The Iraqi forces began well by ambushing the Iranian scouting force of Scorpion tanks and getting equipment on hills to maximise firepower and push up with T72s, but... The Iranians used a combination of artillery with smoke rounds, Cobra attack helicopters and tanks to push the Iraqis back... The battle looked particularly bloody with the Iraqis having no firepower equivalent to the Iranian Chieftain tanks… Those Chieftain 120mm guns dominated the centre of the field. A win for Iran.
Another game saw a 28mm “tank heavy” Bolt Action game with German STUGs and a Jagdpanzer up against a US mixed armoured force.
Despite the US outnumbering the Germans and getting shots onto the Jagdpanzer they just couldn't take it out.
A draw in this game.
The last of our games was a 6mm WW2 Eastern Front battle using Blitzkrieg Commander rules.
This was a playtest to see how the rules worked. An out umbered German detachment had a delaying mission against the Russians - the Germans held the village of Rokva buying time for the main German forces to retreat.
The Russian tanks advanced ahead of their infantry and were comprehensively destroyed - one German panzerfaust team accounting for three tanks. Germans were worn down but held the village for a major win. All agreed that the rules played well.
