Well I haven’t had a game of The Great War for ages so it was nice to get the chance of a game this week at club against Steve and his French forces. We played the Storm the Hill scenario with me as the defender and Steve as the attacker.
Here’s the set up.
As for the game it was a cracker, Steve managed to take out one of my HMG’s in the first turn and keep the pressure on the rest of the game, it didn’t help my really poor cover save dice rolling for my chaps in the hill trench’s.
Here’s some more pictures.
But before the French could get to my lines the last of the German defenders thought better of hanging around after taking more heavy casualty from the withering French fire and scarpered leaving the objective open and the game Steve’s , nice one mate.
Anyway we’ve arranged a re-match for mid July with me trying to re-take the hill, so watch this space ;o).
