Chain of Command France May 1940 (new game added 22 July)
« on: June 06, 2021, 05:47:12 PM »
I got together with Martin for a face-to-face game of Chain of Command using the Blitzkrieg supplement.
I took 1939 British and he took second wave Germans.
We played the Attack and Derfend scenario from the main rulebook.









Much fun was had as we re-familiarised ourselves with the rules.

More words and pictures on my blog:

And the German view over on Martin's blog:

Great terrain - a very pastoral feel to it.  Well, except for the gunfire, explosions, and men and vehicles milling about... :D

Speaking of men and vehicles, they look great too!

Don't blame you for taking lots of pics of the terrain in the second game- looks great!
I read and enjoyed both your game reports.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Thanks all.
Terrain has been a joint effort, though I think there is more of Martin's work then mine...

I hope there will be more!


We're intending to play through the "Fighting Withdrawal" Campaign from the TFL Summer Special.
