Managed to get another game of The Great War in last night at club againest Orange Dave,it was a re-match of a game we play a couple of months ago (Storm the Hill) where one player tries to hold a fortified hill with 500pts of troops while his opponent has 1,000pts to attack it.We were using early war forces,Dave was Germans and defending with me using my BEF to attack them.Below are some pictures of the game.
View from the BEF lines.
Scouts take the ruin’s infront of the German lines.
Birds eye view of the British advance
Up and at them lads…..
German first line of defence crumbles.
The second line of German defenders move in but are repulsed by the gallent British forces.
The last of the German reinforcements arrive.
The capture of a British Officer ;).
The last turn of the game and the Germans have the last scoring unit lefted on the battle field in the hill to take the win,the British only have 2 HMG support weapons and 2 other chaps left on the board :(.
What i great game,things didn’t go well for the British attack to begin with,with me rolling lots of high number for my leadership tests and loads of low ones when moving through difficult ground,the casulties were horrendous 😦 ,at one point i didn’t think i’d get to the hill.But when i got there it was Davids turn to roll poorly with his counter attack being seen off by my lads.It all came down to the last turn with Dave just being in range to assualt one of my remaining units in the hill with his last scoring unit to take out the win.Just like to say a big thanks to Dave for making it down to club for the game and just to say i’ll get you next time ;).
