Excellent work! I really like the clear reporting and meticulous photo documentation. One of the best AAR's I have seen of a skirmish.

Adding to the accolades of others … I find this series to be really superb. Not just this particular Game 3 part 2, but also part 1, and games 2 and 1 before. Really superb.

The models are excellent. So much to see -- the variety and fading of the uniforms, the mud on the tires of the armored cars, it all works.

The terrain is excellent. Rolling ridgelines dividing the battlefield. Woods here and there. Gullies for the men to duck into for cover. All well presented and a believable battleground.

The games flow so well. Men charging, guns scrambling to get into action, tank crews loosing their nerve when the engine is stalled by grenades on the deck.

And the storytelling, both in the narrative and the photos. Enough about the rules to give us a sense of how they work, but more than that a progression through a war report that has a very authentic feel to it. It's like watching a living, moving, dynamic diorama as much as a wargame.

Great stuff! Please keep it coming.

I love these reports. They actually feel like WW2.

And it is great to see a few toys on the table – the mainstream BA and especially COC doesn't have enough of it IMO.
