We both agreed a good old fashioned all infantry shootout would be a great end to a busy week at work, so we opted for a low point Infantry Aces game. After much scratching of heads, we worked out that Infantry Aces only really works if one is able to stitch together several games in the same evening. Now, this is entirely possible for any normal gamer, and indeed the guidelines for Infantry Aces indicate a game should be possible within an hour.

Battlefront's notes in Cassino gives some excellent tips on the merits of terrain placement and these were studiously applied in an attempt render a playable and realistic battlefield based in Normandy, June 1944.

Justin supplied the beers which Chris did his best to try and finish.

That is the prettiest and best presented AAR I have seen in a long time.

Two thumbs up:

Amazing. That's the kind of table that would convince just about anyone at a convention or store to buy in to miniatures gaming.

It's not the style of AAR I prefer to read but, they really set the bar for presentation!
