Invasion 1999
« on: August 12, 2018, 01:21:57 PM »
In 1999 the UK was invaded by the Volgans. Just prior to the attack an attempt was made to capture the PM who just happened to be visiting a police station of tooled up coppers. A van filled with Volgan fifth columnists rammed the Police station gates and then assaulted the building. Luckily two of CI5s  top agents were on watch outside and were able to call for military support, then engage the terrorists.



A confused firefight took place inside the station while a plucky constable pulled the PM out of a back door.



At this point the sky was filled with Volgan transport aircraft dropping the initial wave of paratroopers. The invaders deployment was decided by the time honoured tradition of throwing cardboard counters at the table and that was where the units landed. Unfortunately a Volgan unit landed opposite the police station, catching Bodie and Doyle in crossfire.



Bodie was cut down as Doyle realised he had to protect the PM. Leaping into his Capri he was able to intercept the PM and whisk her away under the noses of the Volgans to a fall back secret location. Just as British Quick reaction units were arriving.



A sharp series of engagements now took place but the Volgans just had too many troops on the ground by now. The British were defeated and either killed or captured.

Where's Bill Savage when you need him?  ::)

Cracking idea well-executed!  :)

It was a good game and at some point I'll get my pictures added, the Volgans did not have it all their own way as they lost a few figures too.


More games too follow. :)
