A little bit of Bir Hakeim
This week we were over at Chris K’s for a game of NQM. We were back in the Western Desert, for part of Gazala. We’ve done this before, back in March 2013, but for some reason all the photos have disappeared from my post.
We had four of us in the room. Steve was Rommel, Tim & I shared the Bris and Phil was the Free French. Jon was supposed to join online as the overall British commander, but we cocked up the connection.
Phil is sitting behind the Free French emplacement. Germans and Italians coming on the left hand side, having swept around behind the French. The little groups of 3 vehicles near the camera are me, 7th Div. Tim has similar sized forces towards the top. 3rd Div, I think.
The Italians envelope the French, prior to launching an attack.
The Germans brush me aside and hit Tim’s hastily formed defence line. The remnants of my force hang round the rear of the Germans, trying to knock out their fuel supplies.
Although whilst I was doing this the French got all fired up, and cleared the Italians out properly.
This played much more quickly than the last time we did the battle, which took a day. Since then Chris has put NQM onto squares, and raised the level of combat resolution. He is also simplifying hit allocation and casualty removal. This speeded things along, but hit problems when a target area had units of different type in it.
Knowing Chris, he’ll sort it.
