I also do not have much on map wise either at the moment and as it is a bank holiday weekend and it is impossible to use the roads I will be sitting put in the shade for the weekend. I have therefore decided to actually start the solo WWII campaign which has been eating away at me for some time. I am using the Too Fat Lardies campaign booklet "Operation Martlett" so that if it is a success and I enjoy it then I can move on to "The Scottish Corridor" which slots in with the former. I also want to see how the Bolt Action rules fair under the scenarios which I have to admit seem much more realistic than those in the Warlord books which are more gamey.
The first game which I have set up for over the weekend is a British probe into the outskirts of the village of Fontenoy, my main interest in this is that the British approach is over some very open terrain against a dug in defence, I asked my friend Matt to choose the German support troops and I will probably call on him again as the campaign progresses unless I can find some poor sod to actually command the Germans at some point.
I set the table up tonight and look forward to testing things out over the coming weekend.
