The Battle of Ravioli Pass took place this afternoon and resulted in a draw. The heroes of Hauptmann Fritzel's command are displayed below. Hero of the day was the artillery spotter who keep the British at bay until finally taken out in one of the relentless air strikes. The mortars were a different story , they managed to miss every target!
Played using the Flames of War rules it made for a very enjoyable game. (I went off WW2 wargames years ago after playing against some very serious "experts" using overly complicated rules). The army was painted from scratch in just over two weeks, although at the half way stage I remembered why I used to get bored painting this kind of stuff! I have agreed to expand the forces and will be playing a return match in the coming months. But for now I am missing my nineteenth century toys. Flashman beats Hassel every time!
