We continued moving through some of my old Battlefront WWII scenarios last week, still in Crete 1941. This time it is the NZ 23rd Battalion's counterattack on Galatas, a battle fought at night.
Here is a link to the full AAR if interested: link

And here are a few photos of the action.

Very nice. Every time I see something like this it reminds me that I have boxes of 1/72 figures in the basement that I need to get on the table.

Played this scenario some years back. If I remember correctly in the game I played the Germans held the village.

Very cool that you played this, Greg G1. So much time is spent writing up scenarios I find it is always nice to know someone gave them a run through. I think there is every possibility that the Germans can come out on top if they manage to get through the first couple of rounds intact.

That is a very nice looking game, Bill! Great looking terrain and a really good AAR as well.

Bill, I'm a late arrival here to your game posting, but sure admiring its delivery……love the lighting affects (which bring our viewpoint even closer to action).
