|From the 20mm Game, US Platoon moves out towards known VC positions|
Although the single soldier bases represented fire-teams, I think they came off rather well and the game was fun and also slightly aesthetically pleasing as well. Also - scenery is Pet Store Aquarium foliage. I think it makes nice jungle. the Palm trees are too expensive to fill up a table.

Scenario: Alpha Company, 1st Battalion 27th Infantry Regiment (Wolfhounds) and hard fighting during Operations Attleboro as the US Army and its allies attempt to drive Charlie out of his safe-havens and destroy almost a division's worth of stockpiled supplies.
This scenario saw first A Company in 15mm (stands represent squads) and then 1st Platoon, A Company (figures represent fire teams) attempt to take a destroyed church or plantation building or whatever. The VC are expecting them and mount a hasty defense to deny the area to the US Army. In the first scenario they pay the price! Second scenario, US loses 1 fireteam knocked out and that's about it. The rest are suppressions and pins that are easily remedied.
There is also some heavy metal mixed in for sport. Enjoy. Huzzah!
|US Platoon enters the brush. Platoon leader is chatting away on the radio in the background.|
|First Squad fans out to the left.|
|US Squad occupies the Church and finds the VC main force commander in the open!|
|US Forces quickly come under fire but the church bricks and rubble offer decent protection from small arms fire and they come out unscathed.|
|From the 15mm game, US Forces attempt the road crossing to assault the VC element. Those 2 red dice with "6's" on them are bad news!|
|Towards the end of the 20mm game, the US Reserve Squad emerges from the orchard next to the church and flanks the remaining VC elements.|
|US Platoon Leader along with an M60 section, M79 Section and a rifleteam. All this for a Platoon Leader!?|
