Flames of War tournament practice

We have not played FOW at Camp Cromwell since the last tournament so more practice was considered desirable to refresh out memories & minimise embarrasment next Saturday.

Jim's Schutzen v. Mark's Fucileiri
1750 pts Early War. Hold the Line Mission, Germans defending.
The Germans are in the foreground.  The Italians looked fearsome at the start with so many troops, but dug in veteran Germans are hard to kill & their firepower thinned the conscripts out and stopped their frontal advance in its tracks.  The flank attack from the left did push the Germans back but their line held long enough for their reserves to come up & time ran out for the Italians.
