Well folks it's been a while since I posted anything so as I catch up on my blogging activities I go back in time to our Xmas game.

Each year we have been refighting our way up the Tigris in WW1 and this year we had reached Ctesiphon.

A cracking game, full of action. I have included orbats, set up info etc if you fancy a crack yourself. We used the Toofatlardies rules If The Lord Spares Us.

Good looking game. Reminds me I've got about 300 or so of those GB figures lurking in the basement.
When I die I want the Arsenal players to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

It certainly is, no loitering about in the open in WW1. It's amazing how quickly you turn into a General Melchett type playing this. I will just sacrifice this battalion against that machine gun so the other units can advance, worrying !
