First looks at couple of new games.......

Couple of board wargames have arrived in last week or so that I have only managed to get some quality time with today.


Jolly nice this one looks.
I used to love the Area/Impulse games that started out with 'Storm Over Arnhem' and this one uses a version of that system.
Map is gorgeous and counters also very nice but good looks do not a good game make. However the rules seem straight forward and fairly short and no obvious problems.
Of course any game that includes 36th Ulster Division has to be good !!  























This one a very nice gift from a mate, for services rendered, and another with quality components, being a deluxe edition block game with nice mounted mapboard.
Took rather a while to sticker all the blocks (as stickers required on both sides) but they do have an appealing look.
Managed to play a solo run through of initial scenario.
Very slick and simple system that plays very quickly.
Certainly not to depth of Dbmm/FOG game but nice system with cards all the same and a quick fix type 'game in a box'.























So many games obtained in last year that I had to re-jig storage again as fast running out of room in my Wargame room !
Bulk of purchases from GMT with a decent smattering of MMP & Compass Games with one or two other publishers.






















Of course that did not bloody stop me bidding on EBay for this and winning same....................................................................................
