    From back in December we played a 20mm Chain of Command game based on the 18th Australian Infantry Brigade, 2/6th Australian Armoured Regiment attack against some troops from the 229th Rgt (probably).
    It was an uneven game with Jon having to face 2 platoons of Aussies under Rob and Bill and a M3 Stuart. Both sides had slightly depleted units. All the Japanese were dug in or in hard cover.
    The Aussies choose a pre game barrage and 1 Stuart. The Japanese had a MMG team which Jon put in hard cover on his left to sweep the coconut tree flank. The only AT assets were a team of tank busters with grenades.

    Really good looking table there, like the close in action!

    We treated spotting as variable in the kunai grass and jungle so units would roll a D6 and add 6 inches.  This really kept the action close in.

    I love the terrain on the table. The rules seem a bit fiddley for me thou.
