In a departure from our steady diet of Peninsular Napoleonics, I introduced my friend Alan to WWII gaming last week, playing the Battlefront WWII scenario, The Sanatorium. It was great to dust off the toys and get them on the table again.

It was played on a 6' X 4.5' table with 1/72nd scale miniatures.

Here's a link to the full batrep if you are interested.

And here are a few pictures from the game:

Really nice looking table, made me cold just looking at it. I enjoyed the summary of the game with the good pictures, and it got me looking at your other posts, you have a lot of good Napoleonic stuff on your site.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the report.

Well done batrep, sir. I struggle doing those, as I get caught up in the action and forget to write/phot things! I admire your ability!

Thanks, all. PzIV, I know what you mean! I generally just take a bunch of pictures while my opponent is moving his pieces, and then try to recreate the narrative from the photos I have. I tend to get more shots of my own highlights, of course. Go figure… :0)
