Happy Thanksgiving! And, just to prove I'm still alive and being productive, here's a post. I bought some tan felt the other day and have been working on making it into a desert mat. Here are some pics:
The whole force is six rifle units (can be teams or whole squads, depending on what rules I want to use), a weapons element, and three leaders.
In any case, the whole force consists of 8 rifle elements and four leaders. I also have two Toyota pick-up trucks ("Technicals"), one with a 106mm recoiless rifle and one with a 12.7mm Dshk HMG, to go with this force.
Alright, so that's what I've been working on since finishing my French Indochina forces. I had a great Thanksgiving and am off from work tomorrow, so I'm looking at putting the paintbrush/basing materials down and getting into some games this weekend. I know it's very ambitious, but I plan on playing three games this weekend. Here's what I plan to do:
1. Play another fight from my 82nd Airborne "All Americans" campaign, possibly ending the campaign in Sicily for them. The platoon will be coming out of its blocking positions into Marsala to replace a battalion coming out of the line for some rest after some very heavy street-fighting. The platoon will be charged with pushing further into the city.
2. A modern Special Operations element conducting a raid against modern Regulars to capture a high-ranking officer.
3. An attack by the FFL to break up a meeting between two rival clans looking to patch relations up enough to team up against their shared European adversary.
So, to make this fun, you can vote on which fight you'd like me to carry out first. Keep in mind that not many folks read my posts (also, it's getting late on Thanksgiving night, and the first fight is happening tomorrow morning, so not much time left), so one vote may very well carry the day!
