Milne Bay Delaying Action Sept 42
« on: October 02, 2021, 09:31:33 PM »
This was a 20mm Chain of Command game played last month that was based on the Aussie following up the Japanese retreat after their failed assault on the Milne Bay airfields, early  September 42.  It was a modified Delaying Action scenario with the 2 Japanese players each having a weakened platoon and a MMG team.  The 2 Aussies had regular Commonwealth platoons.  Excellent defensive positioning by the Japanese players and the 2" mortar's smoke dissipating too quickly ensured a Japanese victory.

Gorgeous table as always Mark, good to see your terrain back in action. Are you playing this as part of a campaign, or was it a one-off scenario?

Its a one off.  I would love to see someone do a Milne Bay PSC.
I have been busy running games -- just can't find time to edit the pics and write them up.
I've a couple of IABSMs, a nice SP and plan to do another IABSM tomorrow.
Thanks,
Mark
