El Alamein - Lightfoot southern flank

Posted by Fire at Will on 05 May 2014, 09:51

On Saturday I joined several southern members of the Society of Gentlemen Gamers for a game at the Legionary show in Exeter.

It was one of the Rapid Fire scenarios, Lightfoot southern flank, which pitched the 7th Armoured against positions held by Folgore and Ramke paratroops, backed up by Axis armour. I took on one flank of the British assault and we won best in show so it was doubly a pleasure to play

Preparing for the off, the Axis positions stretch before us. The first fifteen moves would be in darkness so there would be limited visibility

The British encounter the minefields. Don's invulnerable scorpion attacks single-handed in the centre

While the engineers clear the mines the infantry advance on the first positions

The axis realised the inevitable and conceded victory.

Had a great day out, but very little purchasing, only a pair of Britannia Command Jeeps
