First up was a game of the new Too Fat Lardy rules Chain of Command.
|end of the patrol phase|
|my German Jump-off points in good cover and close to the objective|
|Mike's jump off points not as well situated|
|Mike comes on strong|
|my section in the ruins on the left gets pounded, but I reinforce with the 4th section I chose as my support|
|I blast Mike's section covering the crossroads and you can see in the background my reserve section coming across the field to outflank him|
Next up was a game of Maurice. We used the terrain generator system from the rules and my Austro-Bavarian force got a nice defensive position between two villages to hold off Mike who commanded my Prussian 'blue meanies'. Mike outnumbered me by about 1.5 to 1, although I got to use my supercool redoubt, just because of the coolness.
|Austrians in the background, Prussians advancing in the foreground|
|Mike\s grenadiers seize the objective, the bierhaus|
|Pandours try to snipe from the woods|
This holiday season I am hoping to get together with the Padre for more Chain of Command. Him being a grad student and me being off until the New Year (the joy of being in a factory again!) will make this very possible. As an early present for myself I ordered in an extra hard copy of CoC for myself and have been reading it and pondering rebasing a couple of platoons from my 15mm collection.
