Ramelle "Take two."
Some time ago I managed to take part in a refight of the Ramelle area on 7th June 1944. Last weekend the same table was used again and was an encounter action between advancing Allies and a German batlegroup
All 10mm Pendraken figures from Colin and Jim Morton's collections (I need to get mine painted asap). I drew a map of the action and then promptly lost it so all I have are some out of sequence pictures.
My Panzer Grenadiers give some Paras who "came a calling" a good kicking in the woods. Very soon "For you the war is over" was being barked in bad English.
I did feel better 5 mins later as some Stug's lit up the Sherman at 100m range but I only have 3 Stugs and there are still 10 Shermans floating around.
The game is in the balance and it will be continued, hopefully the moons all align and I can get to the game.
Very enjoyable game it was and I managed to game from 9am through till 4.30pm - A massive achievement.!.
