|The set-up. SSU starts in the near left corner and Axis in far right.|
It was a long time ago I last had a game of Dust Warfare (and then I just had a couple of practice games) and now at last Thomas and I had a go at each other at the club.
We were both really rusty when it came to the rules, but practice makes perfect and I fully intend to practice.
|The Axis, played by Thomas. Just one unpainted hero there. They should win...|
You might think there is a certain grim-dark look of the buildings, but I’m told that that is an authentic neo-empire look was all the rage in the Soviet Union in 1947. Figures...
|The SSU set-up|
|The battlefield from the viewpoint of a common Axis grunt.|
|What can we hit from here?|
|Axis troops walking around doing nothing much :-)|
|More troops taking cover behind walls and my Chinese (unpainted) volunteers prepares to climb up to the first floor. They will take heavy losses, being unpainted...|
|The sniper rifles of my Rifle Squad proves to be rather effective against Thomas' walker. They won't knock it out but they damage it.|
|My troops in well protected positions.|
|Kaboom! The BR 47 pays its cost as it destroys the Axis light walker. Urrah!|
|And soon there after it takes out the heavy walker also. Urrah! Great performance from that cheap vehicle.|
At this point Thomas starts swearing and looks rather disgusted. I taunt him, of course, and we call it a day.
A good day, if I might say so J
Welcome McSver/Tim McDowall with the blog Battleshed Diaries, a blog on what’s happening in said shed. Really worth a look as there is a wide variety of topics to look at.
