This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Tom ran a beautifully staged Skirmish Sanguin game at the club last night. This as my first time with the rules and lets just say it showed!
The scenario was a British Patrol, along with a squad of Afghan Police trying to sweep a Village. Ed and I each took a four man British section with the Keith taking the Afghan Police. Ed and I weren't too sure about the loyalties of the Police so had them take point.
The high point of the game for my squad - landing a grenade close enough to do a little damage. The rest of the scenario was pretty much a disaster. Ed's squad found an IED the hard way, The afghan police got shot up but did have the best showing of our group. I had one medium wound and decided that retreating was a much better option.
My squad retreating. I liked the rules, but this is a game that requires you to both really know the rules and likely takes 2-3 play through before you're proficient. I would like to play again - especially on Tom's wonderful terrain and minis.
