Chocks away!

June 21, 2011 in Aerial, Colonials, Flames of War, WW2

Another summer club night, this week we had two prospective new members, so welcome Kev and Dean and don’t forget to organise yourselves a game for next club.

Later in the year, we are having another all day game, with the Zulus getting another outing. We are planning a 12′ x 6′ game with lots of models and lots of players. Rules will again be Toofatlardies Sharp Practice amended to suit the period, another game to test the new card deck tonight.

On another table, World War Two continues to be refought with the popular Flames of War rules.

Finally we took the opportunity to bring out the hex mat and the Check Your 6! rules, a great set of rules and some great models from Raiden Miniatures.

Playing ‘The Swede’ scenario from the rulebook pits a lone pilot ace against three fatigued Zeroes, a great scenario to learn the rules. In the first near miss off the game the US Ace just managed to side step the zero but then fluffed his attack with his rear MGs.

The Dauntless takes out a Zero but takes damage from another, reducing it’s speed. Losing altitude the more robust Navy plane maneuvered it’s way out of trouble. Another Zero takes more damage and explodes, finally as the final Zero overtakes and turn round to fire on the Dauntless it flies off the board to bring about the end of the game and a draw.
