Gaming Board Inaugural Game! GHQ Armor

All day at work I was thinking about breaking in the new gaming board.  As soon as I got home, I threw some armor on the table and got cracking.  GHQ rules - meeting engagement from the book's first scenario.  I won't go into too much detail suffice to say it was a cracking good time.  Russian decisive victory as well.  The board surpassed expectations and I love all the maneuver room!
glorious people's army advances!

this stupid SU76 barely managed to move past the line of departure and didn't move the rest of the game...

STUGIIIs take on the lead elements of the Soviet breakthrough

  1. Good looking table and miniatures; too bad about the Katyushas.

    1. Thanks, Mike! Alas - the Russians failed their artillery cohesion roll each and every time. No fire missions for ivan.

  2. Great pictures, great looking table!

    1. Thanks, Al. I promised it would look even better after the last layer of flock! I am very pleased with how it turned out

  3. Very nice report...the "cool pic" is really a nice pic!

    1. Thanks, Phil! The table makes my miniatures look good lol!

  4. Great pictures. The table looks fantastic and it looked like a good game.

    1. Sean,
      It was a fun game. There is something "comfortable" to me about GHQ's rules. Kind of like a nice, comfy tshirt or something. I know them really well and it makes the game go faster I think.

      the table turned out better than I could have hoped. Now the trick is to pick which games and rules I want to play with!!! Set up takes a few minutes now that i dont have to clear off the dining room table prior to gaming.
