Thanks for the photos. A lot of great looking games there.  Thumbs up

Slight reservation however (as a non-WW2 player), the photos on Operation Goodwood (captions are “The British try to push pass a town …. but brew up in rapid succession.") - tanks in close order? Just doesn't seem right to me. WW2 gamers - comments?  Tongue

Hi

Great report and thanks for the photos.

Regarding the Rapid Fire WWII game, there is an issue with any set of WWII rules that does not penalise you for not spacing your units out, there is a reason troops do that in real life.

"Next target right... FIRE"!

Agreed. I seem to see this a lot, with any games system that includes a armoured/motorised element,

Basically too much stuff crammed into to small a space. It's not rules specific, so I'm not having a go at (e.g.) Flames of War, or Bolt Action or any others.

Although, about the only game I ever seem played that this does not seem to occur in Epic Armageddon. The battlefield always seems very empty in these games (compared to others).

Nice show report though. I didn't go this year, found last year's a bit disappointing.

Cheers, M.

Most of my games are hexed. There's no other explanation for my dice.

Cheers Steve, nice to see some games I didn’t actually have time to get to. Hoping a number of them will reappear at Warfare, where I am not putting on a game, so that I can get a closer look.
