I am only going to look at one game, as many will know I am not a Napoleonic's fan so you may have already guessed it is not that. I returned home feeling enthused by the "Chain of Command!" game. The ONLY problem is the guys playing tend to buy everything on eBay already painted ad sell it a few months later. Which gives anyone a very short window of opportunity to get involved.
Any Patrol arrives.
Back to the game:
Firstly I like "Chain of Command!" I know it is not everyone's taste but I like it and it is for me. WE had an encounter patrol of Germans attacking (Kevin) and British (Relfie) defending.
|British occupy the building and set up the Bren team on over watch.|
While Relfie takes the area close to camera
Kev develops a 75mm Infantry gun in the corner of the walled area
back of picture.
|Germans Hustle into another building and fire is exchanged.|
Relfie by now occupies 2 buildings
and kev 1 a wood and a walled field and the building shown above.
|Germans continue to press forward|
However Concentrated fire from 2 positions
force the Germans in the wood
to fail morale check and retreat and eventually unable to rally in time
the Lmg team flees.
So as I leave it is not looking good for the Germans. I suspect an English win but one can never be sure. the British light mortar was out of HE rounds and was in retreat. Both the buildings and the wooded area had taken casualties while Kevs Unit in the building was still pristine. But as the Platoon was now on low morale very little would be needed to break morale.
From what I have seen of the rules I do like them and feel I need to dust of my 28mm ww2 figures.
