British Airborne 1944 - Chain Of Command at the NWS


British Paratroopers look for the way forward - lovely sculpts from Artizan Designs.


Last night Chris Holt and I decided to give the Chain of Command rules from Too Fat Lardies a run at the club in a quick pick-up encounter game.  A platoon of Paras supported by a 2 inch mortar took on a platoon of run of the mill Germans with a HMG Support weapon for control of the old farm outside Arnhem.




Germans occupy the ruined farmhouse.  Lovely buildings designed and made by Lev and
now in the collection of Big Chris.


A German squad makes it way to cover in order to provide opposition to
the crossing of the creek near the farm. 


Forgive my photography but iPhones can be tricky!  Lovely work in the
BACKGROUND figures from Chris Holt Warlord Games Bolt Action figures I believe.


Two sections make for the hedge rows near the road.


Close up of the lads scampering!

what to do next.   "Why cant I roll a 4 when I really need one?"
Really fun game with my very good dice rolling seeing a fairly comfortable win with objectives achieved and considerable losses to the German defenders.  Great terrain Chris - well done!
