I take it you got the magnetic cards printed at a printing shop? Was it exepensive?

Not bad at all, if I recall. I just took it to the local office supply/printing shop. They're used to doing that for photographs, so no biggie.

1.  That is one grand game and report!  Very well done, lad!

2.  I gotta get me some of those 1st Corps terrorists/thugs/freedom fighters.  They'll make a fitting addition to my Balszaki irregulars.   I might get the armed police while I'm at it.

3.  I got to do the CS chamber twice.  Once at basic training. And again in ROTC.  Yay!!!???...

Another game : Patrol Scenario “ Contact … Wait out!”

British Multiple foot patrol with a two vehicle QRF in Rovers goes across town .

Three ASU’s play hide and seek to lure the troops into a kill zone - backed up with an anti vehicle team in an old Landy .

Brits patrol forwards and come  under fire in the centre. Nothing is spotted.

 Meanwhile the Bad Lads Rover moves into a defilade position to take out any Brit vehicles like Saracens or Pigs. It is seen and the  QRF in two Rovers  fly up the side of the railway line to outflank the Bad Lads. As they turn the corner , the Bad Lads deploy an anti vehicle team from the  coach station by using a full CoC dice . It’s a trap !!! The rear Rover is destroyed , as are the Brick it carries and in the next phase the second Rover goes up too!

Dashing forward to assist the three Sections are  sent forwards but are held off by automatic fire and pinned . Force Morale Rating is dropping for the Brits as the ASU slip away under cover . It’s a victory for the Provos!

Great scenery and terrain. I love the all the details!

I really like the figures. Too bad 1st corps doesn't offer IOSS. I'm hesitant to order anything for fear of disproportionate import and handling costs.

Nicely done! Love what you have done with the terrain and set dressing.
Em dezembro de '81
Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo

Just working on some  of the smaller period details now. Bit of a tip ….. took a punt on a worn  copy of the Highway Code for Northern Ireland .

I need road signs in 28mm scale so thought of this as a solution. Bit of a gamble but at £2.45 was well worth it ! Plastic rod on order for road sign construction to begin in earnest . 👌

Amazing scenes, thanks for coach picture, even period bus station. Did you scratch or can that be bought.

Your dust truck near a bear attracted to the front, seem to remember at the time it was the “in thing” to have soft toys attracted to the front of commercial vehicles.

Need some mature women, they always came out giving the soldiers the verbal when on their street.

Great find with NI Highway Code.

Cheers mate .

The coach station is the Diner from Warbases.

Plenty of mature women around just not made it into the photos yet.

The Bear is a great idea .....  nicked! 😜👍👍👍

AA Guide for road signs is a clever idea.

RE: the 2nd game report - they don't call em' The Troubles for nothin"...2 Landies KO'ed constitutes "Troubles" I would think...

As for the traffic signs, good idea!  I gotta do the same thing, but I'll need both European signs and US signs...
