We picked up our battle of the Ronda Colom where we had left off this Sunday morning. Things looked bleak to begin with for the nationalist rebels. In previous rounds, John and I had successfully driven our anarchist workers up the table, containing the mutinous soldiers in the north-eastern corner. This is precisely where our fifty reinforcements would arrive, behind the 2 government buildings, pushing rolls of newspaper for cover (I love history, especially the history of anarchist revolts).


In the opposite corner, Lee and Chris received two trucks of infantry and another with ammunition.


John and I had built new barricades, earlier in the game, in preparation for the arrival of these soldiers. We also garrisoned the buildings on either side of the road with four riflemen each, and placed two dynamite throwers behind the stone barricades.

Chris and Lee likewise built a stone barricade to welcome our reinforcements, but as they had been forced to deal with the steady advance of the workers in the previous rounds, they were not quite ready for the arrival of reinforcing workers.

Such an impressive display. I really must give some attention to my 20mm SCW collection.
