Camp Cromwell Bulletin 01/12/05

Must be Xmas, numbers are down all round this week. Just 3 at camp Cromwell.
Mariusz's Polish Armour attacking Jim's US Mech Inf in a Hold the Line on the 8x6 desert table. SteveJ umpired.

For a while it looked like the Yanks might get up, but the dreaded Fear Nought rule, lack of reinforcements & lousy shooting held the Poles together until their overwhelming firepower turned the tide.

US Comment: This game made it pretty obvious that 1500 point Hold the Lines should be on a 6x4 table - there's just too many options for the attacker on the wide front. For HTL & Breakthrough I think that the table size should match the army size. A 6' front scales to 2250 pts relative to 1500 pts on a 4' front.

For FFA on the other hand the big table is fine for FFA regardless of army size, plus the big table reduces the problem of first move advantage.
