Battle for Hawkinge : Pheonix Lakeland Wargames Show

Just finished packing for the show tomorrow. The game which is very much a participation game introducing gamers to Sealion and Bolt Action is focussed around the early morning paratrooper attack on Hawkinge Airfield. This is obviously an important target and the Fallschirmjager have been ordered to destroy key targets at the Airfield. High command are keen to keep the Airfield intact for later use so they have avoided pre invasion bombing.
I have also finished a couple of details off.....
Aircrew, Airfield Sign and I have added the details to the bus ๐Ÿ™‚
Out of interest I have also been thinking about terrain and base cloths for larger games, a bit more work to do but the cloth above definitely has promise.
Finally today, I am not letting my wife know just how many ACW figures I now have in the plastic mountain ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. The game looked, and played, excellent. Definitely fun to be playing each figure as an individual unit, splitting up the squad and playing tactical (or not, in my case). Well worth playing!

    Thanks Matt for putting on the game. Phoenix Show at Penrith is certainly a good show, and the venue is great (though a little too hot on a warm day - but nothing the organiser's could do about that). See you next year! :)
