Ben and I will be defending vs. Brits/US in a North Afrikan Battle. I think we will be doing a mission or scenario using entrenchments, wire, minefields and bunkers.

Should be a lot of fun. Hopefully, the rest of my Italians will arrive by then.

If not we will use the magic of imagination and proxy what we need.

Smile

Everyone is welcome to come and play. There is always room for everyone.

Once we find out Ben's schedule we will pick a day to play. I have been laboriously constructing entrenchments, bridges, bunkers, roads and even did a bocage/hedge.

Hope to see you all the next time we play. Evan don't forget to bring Ben's Afrika book with you.

Alright,

I have completed 5' of trench lines that look outstanding. I have some bunkers as well. I am working on bridges but they currently suck at the moment.

Are the Americans up for a big HTL or Big Push mission? Yep, facing fortifications and entrenchments.

Could be very difficult. You get to use your arty as offboard and they can never be hit in the attack, as well as a prep bombardment that is massive for free. We get entrenchments, wire, minefields, bunkers and also get to put our arty off board.

Any takers?

It sounds great fun to me. I am fine with it, how did you make your FOW trenches?

Thanks

I will show you guys how to build cheap trenches. I used craft sticks, skewers, stucco patch and then some static grass. Came out nice. I will probably work on gun pits and such when I get the chance.

I just made a tank obstacle that looks quite good as well, I used small 1/16" tile spacers that are cross shaped. Attached it to a stucco patched craft stick and you got a bunch of steel I beams sticking out of the ground.

Should look nice when I am done.

Just figured out how to do beautiful barbed wire, so I will make a bunch of that too.

Bring whatever you want to play. Bring it all just in case. Just show up and play. It really is that simple.

We will be playing on Sunday at 10 a.m.

Tentatively set for US vs. Italians/Germans but bring what you have and we will make it work.

We had a great time. The Italians won on the defense on a 6'x12' board.
