    Its a long time since I’ve written a game up. Full Scenario and AAR of our latest WW2 Desert Op Compass Campaign is available to view on the link above. This is game 10 of 23.

    In this episode the front line Italian Forts have fallen and the last of the support troops, including the Chef and his all important kitchen team are heading to Bardia from Fort Capuzzo.

    The Italian Commander at Bardia doesn’t want to lose his supplies and sent an armoured force to escort them back to the new lines.

    The British on the other hand are not sleeping and have sent some of their Cruiser Tanks in a hook move to cut the Road.

    I’ve included everything you need to replay the game as well as a write up about how we got on.

    Some nice looking models, and a massive table!

    It’s always fun to see Italian mediums against early cruisers, because it’s essentially offspring of the Vickers 6-tonner on both sides. Also true for T-26s against Pz 35(t)s in Barbarossa, if it comes up.

    All the best,

    John.

    Great stuff; always enjoy Desert War gaming.  Love the campaign but more than two years since T’YARKSHIRE FERRET gave news of a clash between the GF and the HSF.  What have the fleets been up to; the world wonders.

    Sadly Covid put a huge hole in it. Game 3 needed a bigger table than we have available here. Our new club building can accommodate so it’s just a case of getting it organised, hopefully soon.

    Great idea and write up.

    Those little ‘tanks’ are super – never knew they existed (my WW2 was late war mainly).
