I’m pretty excited about the Kangaroo Ram for the Canadians. I’ll be looking to trade to get extras of it.
D Day set and gaming
So I got the case of D Day releases and am generally quite pleased. As I got to the last box I was hoping for a German or British Rare but got that French tank. Oh well I had no doubles on other rares and am pleased.
What happened to the scale of the 88mm. I know it was a scary piece but its not that big. At the same time there were a couple of other vehicles that came across very small.
So we set up a new map. I made a 3 foot by 8 foot hex map on a roll of brown craft paper. For all of the various terrain types we cut different coloured paper hexes and laid them out. It was a very cool map and I can change the trerrain as desired. We played a European game of 500 point armies in a meeting engagement. It was about four hours to play 7 turns. With so much terrain it was important to build significant transport into the mix and run it up and back shuttling the infantry into the fight.
I lost three Sherman varients just to take out the veteran Tiger.
