20mm Falklands Terrain Part 2

 Well just about there on the Falklands terrain boards, I have 6 500mm x 500mm full boards and 3 500mm x 250mm half boards for a coastline. At the moment I'm just finishing off the 6 full boards, here's some shots of one of the boards, it has a central hill with rock formations.

And a figure for scale

Happy with the way they are progressing

Falklands AAR Night Platoon Attack

 A scenario to run through the night rules in Fireteam Modern. A British Platoon Attack, part of a larger engagement, on an Argentine held Tin Villa out in "The Camp".

The Brits were attacking with a Platoon, in defence the Argentinians Had a couple of fireteams, aGPMG team and a small HQ element. As already stated this was a night action.

Here's a view of the terrain and dispositions

Some other views

The Argentinian GPMG opened up causing some pins on the nearest British section, but not causing any casualties, 2 of the British sections responded causing lots of pins effectively suppressing the GPMG team. The Argentinian HQ element activated and moved across to try and stabilise the team and remove some pins.

The Brit section on the far side was hit suffering 1 KIA and 2 WIA, luckily the Platoon HQ arrived, the medic sorted the WIA and the Platoon Commander and Sgt managed to remove some pins.

The Brits then really got organised and effectively won the firefight on their left flank causing the Argentinian fireteam to break and rout off table. On the other flank the Brit Section close assaulted the Argentinian position causing casualties and breaking them, the remaining Argentinian forces then surrendered. A British victory, albeit with 2 KIA and 2 WIA/Treated. The Argentinians had 2 KIA, 3 WIA, a Fireteam routed off into the night and the remainder including the HQ surrendered.

Once again these rules performed really well and I would recommend them to all!

20mm Falklands Building and Playground Part 1

 My Falklands terrain is progressing, albeit delayed due to work commitments, however back in the swing now. I've been working on another Scaledale tin building, repainted and weathering started.

A while ago I picked up a Faller HO scale Playground to utilise for the fighting around the Schoolhouse at Goose Green. Here's a photo of a conversion the Argentinians performed on the kids slide.

Work commenced

And that slide

Construction completed and items primed
