Here is scenario 2 from the Last Stand on Opium Hill campaign for Chain of Command that was published in Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy Issue 101.

The Japanese push on towards Singapore. They reach the small village of Buena Vista where the Malay Regiment will conduct a delaying action to try to stall the advance. This is a campaign where the Japanese have the numbers to afford to push aggressively, where as the Malay Regiment must conserve their force if they are to go the distance.

The Malays got it hard with those extra Japanese turns at the end. I still think it seems wrong for the men's opinion of this Japanese platoon commander to be transferred to the next as you bring in a fresh platoon.

As always awesome and detailed. I love it.

Dang, that is a beautiful table of terrain and figures! Chapeau, sir!

The figures in particular are stunning. Absolutely stunning. The whole AAR is a feast for the eye. And it is a well told story as well -- not at all verbose (as I always wind up being), letting the pictures and just a few words tell the tale.

Quite a delight to read.
