    All,

    It’s been several days since crossing the frontier, and TF Trojas is looking for action. It’s 1500 on 8 April 1990, and Team 6-4 has been briefed, geared up, and conducted its movement to the objective area. Lt Trojas was informed by local agents that the leader of a local cell of the Cronistrian People’s Army (CPA, the local Communist Militia supporting General Ambroz Zlatan’s communist takeover of Cronistria) scheduled a meeting in a farmhouse in the nearby village of Perzezl. Trojas immediately put Team 6-4 on the task of proceeding to the meeting location and eliminating the CPA cell. Sergeant First Class “Rooey” Contreras was only too happy; he and his boys were itching for action, and Willow (KIA from Team 6-3) was a friend of his.


    The fight is bloody, and we have close combat! At left is a downed Cuban and a downed bad guy. To see how the fight went, please check the blog at:

    The fight was fantastic, a crazy back and forth that saw the Cubans… Well, you’ll have to check the blog 😉 In any case, that’s all the fights so far. This week I’ve been painting up some 15mm vehicles and terrain, and this weekend I have a rather ambitious agenda of getting in one fight in South Leon (15mm), and two more fights here in Cronistria (20mm).

    V/R,
    Jack

    Give him a break, we are all thankful he has rocky outcroppings rather than shagpiles (you even spotted this in the previous AAR!) , and then you start picking on the buildings.  You should be ashamed of yourself,  setting the bar to  a level Jack can never reach 🙂  Next thing you know you will be wanting some roads in front of the houses so they are not all in the middle of pastures.

    Kyote- thanks, and yes, I have the roof for all the houses.  I just remove them when people/blinds are inside, so that I don’t forget about them.

    Shaun – noted regarding the houses in the pasture, I’ll see what I can do.  I am bitten by the fact I don’t have 20mm roads, so they’re not really featuring in these batreps.

    In any case, how about some comments on the actual fight, you knuckleheads!

    V/R,

    Jack

    Um the FOW roads while made for 15mm would work for 20mm…..just a thought…glad you have roofs !!!! And it was a good back and forth game.

    Jack, you do not need to put roads down!  I only mentioned that dissing the lack of a roof leads down a path to looking at all aspects of terrain and was using the lack of roads as an example.  The 6mm game I have setup at the moment does not have roads leading to any houses, so I am in no position to criticise at all!

    Are you playing some sort of game – I was looking at pictures you have posted for terrain ideas 🙂  And reading the world’s longest review of a set of rules, that still seems to have quite a way to go 🙂

    I couldn’t wait and read it this evening. The Commies just kept going, took a licking and just kept ticking. And what’s with the blood covered arms and butcher’s apron on the leader? Laying on the imagery a bit thick, no? A really great little scrap and a good report although loaded with suspense surppressing spoilers along the way!?!? Cool stuff and thanks for posting this. Oh, by the way, the Cubans’ choices of nicknames; not very Cuban and more proof that these are likely plausibly deniable US special forces posing as Cubans!

    Cheers and good gaming.

    Shaun – Yes, I’m playing a game, and not just a game, but another campaign, so get crackin’.  And you’re not very good at this trash talking stuff 😉

    Rod – Yeah, a helluva fight, and a very Hollywood ending.  Regarding imagery: hey, if the shoe fits…  I’m not following you on the spoilers though, whaddaya mean?  Regarding the nicknames, they’ve been translated from Spanish to English so you gringos can keep up 😉

    Kyote – It’s gonna be okay 😉

    V/R,
    Jack

    Jack:

    So “Willow” in English is “Sauce” in Spanish. “Sauce” is a silly nickname, unless he really loves pasta or hooche. But, alas, now we will never know as Sauce has gone to that big pot in the sky! Sniff!

    Cheers.

    I may not be very good at trash talk, in your opinion, but if your best response is “you are not very good at this trash talk”, I will have to stop fighting with an unarmed person  – it would be unfair.

    Oh, c’mon!  It’s lose-lose, like fighting a little kid.  If I beat up on ya, I’m the bastid beating up on a little kid.  If you beat up on me, I lost to a little kid.  I’m walking a tightrope here! 😉

    V/R,

    Ah Jack, you are getting the idea.  You cannot win any battle with me, real, imagined or trash.  If only I could say that was my cunning plan all along…
