The Italian Counter-attack on Cameron Ridge
« on: February 14, 2014, 06:40:26 PM »
Yesterday evening, James Martin and myself had a great game of I Ain't Been Shot Mum with a re-fight of the Italian Counter-attack on Cameron Ridge that took place on the 2nd Feb 1941 during the Battle of Keren in the East Africa campaign.





As usual, their are loads more photos, a battle report, orders of battle, etc. on the  Scrivsland blog

This looks great and is a front I am looking at in 20mm. Do you have the Lardies campaign booklet Ruddy Picknik? If so what do you think to it is it worth getting?

The Lardie campaign booklet is easily worth the few quid it costs.  I found the hex maps rather hard to interpret but the background and scenarios are spot on, especially as there isn't a history of the East African Campaign in print at the moment.  Definitely worth buying.
