Here are some more photos of the game. I will add some commentary and details when I can but for now enjoy the eye candy!

Mark Fry's superb Dutch EW unit, a fantastic little conversion

Another of Mark Fry's Dutch conversions

Saltzgitter with two scratch built container cranes, didn't quite finish the paint job on the cranes as they are supposed to be red and white. Will finish them off as soon as possible and post pictures

The level crossing, this was the scene of some heavy fighting between Andy Hamilton's US 2AD(FWD) and Mike Ahern's Soviet forces. I believe that control of the level crossing changed hands several times during the game

Outskirts of Brunswick

The ESK canal overlooked by a Schloss

The autobahn, those cones would cause the East Germans all sorts of problems

The road into Brunswick

One of Mark Fry's fantastic Dutch recce units complete with aerials

Dutch 105 Recce Bn defends the banks of the ESK, this unit later went on the offensive and conducted a river crossing 

Leopard 2 tanks from the Dutch 105 Recce Bn wait for targets from the edge of a wood overlooking the ESK canal

West German 3 Recce Bn moves in Brunswick 

The West Germans occupy the town square

Dutch 103 Recce Bn take up defensive positions on the left flank of the US 2AD (FWD)

US recce Bradley crosses the railway lines 

US M1 Abrams take position on a ridge

  1. Great pictures mate, Andy and myself really enjoyed the weekend.

  2. Really great photos. I too had a great time - best game yet!
    Cheers, Andy

  3. Do I spot Buccaneers amongst the NATO air support? Lovely!

    1. Cracking stuff :)

      I'm very confused - this is definitely a NATO win isn't it?! Soviet propaganda keeps saying otherwise but the scores on the tank bay doors suggest otherwise...


    2. Yes some parts of the table were still contested but the Dutch had turned the tables after a shaky start and by the end has crossed the canal and were taking the fight to the East Germans, the Dutch and West Germans still held Brunswick, US 2AD(Fwd) had all but destroyed a large Soviet force. The Belgians and West Germans had a tough time against a massive Soviet force with T80's but they were about to be outflanked by a British force with Challys and Chieftains, so I would say NATO TRIUMPHANT

  4. HUZZAH!

    The forces of imperialist regression win again, the Citys profit margin is saved once more!
