Last weekend I took part in a Blitzkrieg 1940 themed Chain of Command weekend down Bristol Independent Gaming organised by Andy, giving my new Dutch army a run out. The event gave each player four games and had a campaign element to encourage players not to try pointless death or glory Commando comic charges at the enemy!
My first game was against Troy, a local uni student who had never played the game before, indeed his only wargaming experience was having played Stargrave with fellow student Elliot using pizza boxes as terrain! Despite this, he handled his German force very well deploying one section on one flank utilising the railway station for cover.
However he left the Dutch still in charge of the battlefield so Andy awarded victory to the doughty tulip lovers!
Overall the weekend was very enjoyable, especially as I hadn't played that much Chain of Command and was using a new army with some peculiar characteristics - looking forward to Case Orange Twee!
