Battlegroup Fall Of The Reich game

Played a nice game of BG Fall Of The Reich today at David Pentlands with Norman and Adam both in attendance.
Game played using David and Adams 'biggies' (ie 20mm) with each player having a separate BG to control.
Premise was that Germans (David and Norman) held a village through which a force with some softskins was trying to escape.
The trucks and suchlike were believed to hold some precious art or secret wonder weapon plans that the British sought to capture (not destroy however).
British (Adam and I) were due to come on in 'pincer' style move to interdict the fleeing Germans.

A fun game with lots of action although despite several plays we still managed to get a bombing run wrong by a Typhoon as we dropped 4 bombs in separate locations instead of within a single blast zone.
British managed to capture 3 out of the five target vehicles but only 1 had some treasure in the form of V2 parts.
However Normans BG was broken and Davids on verge of breaking whilst British forces still had decent morale levels so it was declared a narrow win for His Majesty's forces.

Great to team up with these chaps (not least to see several canvases in progress by David for Plastic Soldier Company amongst others) and to play with their excellent figures and vehicles again.
