Another I Ain’t Been Shot Mum 6mm game from last year. This scenario takes place as the 2nd New Zealand Div pushed west towards Orsogna, a battlegroup of the 18th Arm Rgt, 22nd Mot Bttn and some armored cars of the Divisional Cavalry made a feint along the Melone – Guardigrele road. The Germans are hard pressed and hoping to at least stall the Allied push with this small force of grenadiers and panzers. I played the defenders since they were mostly immobile and I was hoping that the terrain would keep the Kiwis at bay. Germans had only a reinforced platoon and a pair of PzIVs, and some artillery that never landed and the Allies had a company of infantry and 11 M4s. The mud was neutral.

Outstanding terrain and minis. I very much enjoyed the photo array and many of the others you have posted on Flicker. So, how did the battle play out? I could not find any description of the struggle. Thanks for posting the piccies. They were game-inspiring eye-candy! I do 15mm and 6mm WWII gaming but your terrain is much better than what I use. I just finished a Canadian and Irish vs. German battle in Italy (the Battle of Cathedral Hill in November of last year. But time constraints and real-world obligations have blocked me from doing a big proper game since.
