Just before Xmas I had a last minute call from the guys at the Leeds Club, the lad who was putting on our display game had fallen ill and we needed an emergency display game for the local (less than 2 miles from my house) Recon Show held at Pudsey.
Luckily the gaming room shelves and boxes here at YG are always ready to go, nearest to hand and needing least prep was the Spanish Civil War collection.
|Guardia Civil Forces|
|A Company of International Brigade and a Company of Milita|
|Legion sniping from a house roof.|
Elsewhere on the table the Republicans were making steady progress on their left flank, the Anarchists threatening to get round the side of the Guardia.
|General Game Chaos|
The Nationalist tank got the bounce on its counter part, finding some cover it opened up, the God of Accuracy was appeased as 3 hits in 3 turns were obtained however the God of Destruction was in a bad mood as epically poor dice throwing resulted in no damage. However with three hit markers the Republican Tank was an unmissable target and it had to seek cover.
|Polis In Da House|
At the end of our allotted time, the game was nicely in the balance, the Anarchists has broken a company of Guardia Civil and has out flanked another. The Legion had neutralised the Militia but the International Brigade were giving as good as they were getting in the village.
The Nationalists had however managed to purchase a second T26 and as soon as it entered the table it engaged the Anarchist troops causing consternation in the ranks. But it was pack up time. A lovely little show Recon, made all the better as I always seem loads of old gaming chums there.
