As a teenager I was a fan of the famous, now sadly out-of-print, board game from Avalon Hill. And recently in a defying act of personal psychological regression, I had the idea to transfer that game onto the bigger table top. As I have no intention to resell or infringe any copyrights, this is just a personal customisation of an already acquired game I love and a single run in the club with dear friends to refight the fights within the centennial.
The figure size will be 6mm and the boards are 8x6 foot! I said it to be complete, but here again I can now swallow my own words ... the rules of GOA have spawned over the 80ies and Yes, theoretically it would be possible, BUT as I intend to do this in short episodes in club nights (2-3 hours incl deployment and takeing pics of status quo and mopping up), I decide to concentrate on Europe, sea and land (and air). I know, I already hear moans of middle east enthusiasts or what about the colonies ... or Japan ...
well sorry for that - I want to finish this game within a year.
This week the mats arrived and I had to do some pics ...
The reception in the club was very friendly and I already have more volunteers that I need.
I have done the German army approx. 75% the French the same (75%) , The British is done (haha, very difficult) so still a long way to go maybe 3 months or so, inbetween, I'd like to do some test games - be patient good things will come out of it.
