Another I Ain't Been Shot Mum 6mm game from last year. This scenario takes place as the 2nd New Zealand Div pushed west towards Orsogna, a battlegroup of the 18th Arm Rgt, 22nd Mot Bttn and some armored cars of the Divisional Cavalry made a feint along the Melone Guardigrele road. The Germans are hard pressed and hoping to at least stall the Allied push with this small force of grenadiers and panzers. I played the defenders since they were mostly immobile and I was hoping that the terrain would keep the Kiwis at bay. Germans had only a reinforced platoon and a pair of PzIVs, and some artillery that never landed and the Allies had a company of infantry and 11 M4s. The mud was neutral.

Mark –
I am always quick to line up to see your AARs. Unfortunately this one has the permissions set so that I must be authorized to see it. Guessing that was not your intention, so … perhaps you can open it up?

(aka: Mk 1 … or maybe should be Mk 2)

How odd. No idea why but try this link:

Thanks for letting me know

That is another great looking game, Mark!

Another great looking game indeed.

I really like the way your vinyards came out. Do I see retaining walls in your vinyards? There are so many nice touches in your terrain.

Also another great game and great AAR.

The scenario just carries such a real feel to it. I very much appreciate your entire approach to miniatures gaming. No bowling-green-and-a-bucket-of-dice going on here!

Color me envious.

Thanks for the comments. Games don't need a ton of units to be interesting. The last two had pretty minimal terrain also. I do think a key ingredient is finding players who aren't into power gaming and appreciate the actual historical situation.
