Happy New Year to you all, we hope you all had a nice Christmas and New Year.
Unfortunately we were unable to host our annual groups Christmas game due the the COVID restrictions at the time, this was a shame as it is normally the highlight of our hobby year. Our Christmas game was going to be the Counter Attack at Arras May 1940, using the Chain of Command rules and an adapted campaign system. Our the past 4 months we have been busy building and panting Warlord Games Blitzkrieg Germans, various vehicles for both sides and adding in some extra Warlord Games BEF infantry to bolster the ranks.
Along with all of this, we also built and painted a fair bit of terrain to which would hopefully add the character of the landscape we were going to play our campaign over. All of this was then put together with a campaign pack which I wrote to give out to the players on the day. We have done some videos of this build which you can see on our Youtube channel.
So, as we had to cancel this game, we decided that we would come up with a Plan B and what follows in the video below is a behind the scenes look at what we got up to over Christmas. Appologies for the sound in places, It was ok on the editor, but seems have issues after uploading
We hope you have enjoyed reading this post / watching our videos and as ever, please feel free to follow our blog and Youtube Channel, like, share and comment and as always, happy wargaming.
