Field of glory

FOG game in progress between Mike and Rob at my place this morning. Rob is entering into the FOG comp at BattleCry here in Auckland in a few weeks time and needed some practice so Mike fielded his Koreans and Rob rolled out his Vikings.

A Few random shots I took during the battle.

















The game went on for over 3 hours as Robs Vikings slowly marched across the table trying to close ranks with Mikes Koreans. Meanwhile Mike was sending a good selection of his cavalry around one of Robs flanks. The game ended in a solid win for Mike but i think Rob learnt a few useful lessons.

Thieves, thieves, Filthy little thieves!

"They stole it from us."



Woke up this morning to find that my car had been broken into! Dirty buggers had taken some CD's my Work Bag and my FM tuner for my Phone/Car Stereo.
I found out my car had been broken into by being woken to the sound of my home phone ringing. A lovely lady had found my bag discarded in a nearby park and had got my details off my Drivers Licence. I Just got my bag back and the thieves have rummaged through my bag not touched my wallet - odd!, but took my paint bush set my painkillers and depression medication which i always keep in my bag encase i need them - odder! And to add insult to injury they poured water (god i hope it was water!!) all throughout my bag destroying a couple of books. (One being a nice new work one I cant name but lets just say im totally gutted!)

Awesome way to start a Sunday. Hope everyone's weekend is going better than mine.

SS Light Artillery Battery (GBX55)
The 10.5cm leFH18 has proven to be an excellent artillery piece during the campaigns in Poland and France and will surely carry on providing our troops with indirect support. There are two battalions are assigned to each Panzer division and form the core of divisional artillery assets.

SS Heavy Artillery Battery (GBX56)
The 15cm schwere Feldhaubitze 18 or sFH18 (German: "heavy field howitzer, model 18"), nicknamed Immergr√ľn ("Evergreen"), was produced by Rheinmetall and Krupp companies and adopted by the German army in 1935. It was the first artillery weapon equipped with rocket-assisted ammunition to increase range. The 15cm sFH18 was also used in the self-propelled mounting of the Hummel.

7.5cm leIG18 gun (SS) (GE556)
One of the tactical lessons learned during the first war, was that each battalion of infantry would benefit from its own artillery support. This led to the development of light guns that could be used in this role.

SS Pioneer Platoon (GE796)
The pioneers create pathways for the army to move through by blowing holes in the enemy fortified line or using simple picks and shovels to clear and create obstacles. Either way, the Pioneers continue the tradition of leading assaults with the flame-throwers and enough explosives to reduce any fortress to rubble.
