I think your Great Grandad would be very proud Jack. Well done. This would be a great game going up against some Japs.

What a great idea. My father-in-law served with the 10th Gurkha rifles at Imphal. I did some 6mm Stuarts in my best guess of a scheme for the ones most likely to have rescued him.

Well- the Gurkhas have finally had an outing.

Michael and I played 1000 points using the Monte Cassino selector.

Here's a snap of the board- nicely done Michael.

The first hour or so was spent chatting :shock:

Micheal deployed as the defender of the scenario which allowed him to place 1/2 of his units on the 12" space from his board edge.

He split his two big Para squads up. His left flank was reinforced with a PAK 40.

I got a preliminary bombardment, which put quite a few pins on the defending Germans.

Turn 1

As the Gurkhas were attacking, we had to bring everything onto the table on turn 1.

Michael advanced his paras on turn 1 allowing for a more advantageous position.


On my turn, I advanced all of the Brits onto the table. My sniper fired at a PAK 40 crewman and missed.

The 25 pounder was set up after being towed on by my Jeep.


Turn 2

More Fallschirmjager flooded the field including an MG42 MMG and another squad of infantry. Some fire was done between squads which added a few pins to the Germans and the Gurkhas.

I kept moving and firing with my squads- my plan was to get up close and personal ASAP.

Turn 3

The German artillery strike came down, but missed all of the troops. Michael rolled a 1 which usually allows the "Target" of the strike to move the location onto something else.

However there were no Germans in range, so the shells fell on the no mans land in the middle of the board.

By this point my two British inexperienced squads were getting cut up pretty badly, the Paras had held their ground and killed most of them off with their automatic weapons.

My HMG jeep advanced up the road and was promptly destroyed by a PAK40 shot.

Turn 4

My Gurkhas were at the centre bridge now and assaulted the German squad in the forest that were now heavily pinned.

They assaulted over the bridge, and due to the commonwealth rule I selected- Michael didn't get defensive fire.

Needless to say, the crazy Nepalese dudes with the big knives won that fight.

My artillery strike landed on the Pak40 and added a few more pins, the squad that was with the PAK40 was also pinned out of the game by this point. They couldn't really do anything as they needed double 1 to pass their order tests.

Following the potentially decisive assault and the same again coming down the right flank- plus it was about 1am, we decided to call it an allied victory!

It was a great game and evening. Just showed how rusty I had become on the rules. I let the Fallschirmjaeger down very badly on the night but we will be back. Looking forward to the campaign series in Italy.
