Same forces as last week except this time we included a tank each: a Stuart and a Chi Ha.
It was a game were the medics on both sides were outstanding- saving 4 lives a piece including the platoon commanders twice each!
Again the main idea was to learn the rules and the Japanese started in
hard cover (dug in) until they moved (to represent being in fox holes
A British platoon advances towards a Japanese held village.
Result? Our three rifle sections had been gutted (2 destroyed, the final one with 5 pins and 3 figures left!) and the Stuart immobilised. We just failed in our last "dash to the wire" to grab the objetive and all we had to show for our efforts was a dead Japanese medic! One Japanese platoon was down to 2 figures but the others were still fighting fit.The British ordered a withdrawal. Time for a up of char!
The game was an absolute blast with far too many silly moments to retell but the four of us had a thoroughly great time. I can see us playing quite a bit of Bolt Action...
