French FT17 1940 HAT 1/72 build

Two HAT 1/72nd FT17 s, a little big for my liking as the rest of my French are the old matchbox kits. I have put these into no particular units as I want to use them for French, Vichy French and Belgian games. Vey happy how they have come out

Team Yankee .....Fail

A game put together loosely based on a total assault of a combined heliborne and armour thrust using every bit of armour I could muster for my Polish and Soviets, my Americans and Brits. The thrust was a complete victory for the soviets as the NATO dice rolling was disasterous.

Bydgoszcz, Poland 1939

This club meeting Unlucky General decided to run out his early war Germans vs my Polish. My units are part of the 9th Infantry division, so I picked a scenario around were the 9th was deployed on the 3rd of September after falling back in the face of the Wehrmacht divisions of the 2nd Motorised -armoured in the outer suburbs of Bydgoszcz.

I could not roll a 5 or 6 all game on my tanks or anti amour all game, so the germans closed to short range and murdered my Polish in there trenches! I still have not managed to pull off a win with the Poles as yet but I still enjoy the rinky dink nature of the AT guns!

Enjoy the pictures


cheers

Golden Monty RF weekend

Well a number of the guys got together to play out the 200, 300 and 400 point battle groups in the RF Normandy Campaign book on the weekend, I played one game as a stand in for a Brit player as I did not finish my FJ that are still on my desk awaiting some love. A big thanks to those people who traveled down from the Cumberland Society in Sydney to add some new players to our RF group in Goulburn.

 Each table had a terrain and road set up that was worth bonus points each set up:- the  different options were,
200 point single village, one wood and one hill each and 24 ft of Hedges, crossroad
300 point two villages, one wood, one hill each and one wood and one hill extra that had to be in the set up area between the troops.
400 point one town, one wood, one hill each and one wood and one hill extra that had to be in the set up area between the troops.

Panzer Lehr was the most popular choice for the Axis and US armoured btn the most popular for the allied.

Some photos that I managed to take
