Invasion USA 1922 - STONE FALLS part 2

Spread the Word!!  Panic spreads through the US ranks...

Trumpets blast out!!  US Ace Freddy RickenBurger arrives...

While Canadian Ace 'Moose' LaRue is a terror to the US troops

The Canadian Rapid Deployment Force advances 

BOOM! Go 'Moose' Go....

Freddy RickenBurger's SPAD is put onto full throttle..

The northern Canadian column comes into view of the US 75mm gun

Great dice rolls by Jenny & the Canadian Armored car goes up..

The pesky US machine gun slows down the other column

'Moose' LaRue is all over the battlefield 

Freddy RickenBurger can't catch 'Moose' & strafes the ground forces instead 

The US gunners mount a brave defense, but the odds are against them

With the bridge blocked, the Canadians have to cross the river 'the old way' 

'Moose' LaRue, terror of the skies!

The advance is held up, time for a few re-adjustments

Oh no! good PiPs for the US & Freddy RickenBurger catches up with 'Moose'

It's slow going crossing that bridge....

NOOOOO!  'Moose' LaRue, Hero of Canada, RIP 

FOR CANADA!!!!!!

The bridge is taken, onward!

The US 75mm is finally silenced

Clash of Armored Cars....

Freddy RickenBurger strafes the Cavalry

Canadian Infantry capture the other bridge

Canadian small arms fire sends RickenBurger packing with a 'Flee' result

It's a desperate defense of the cross roads

'That Pesky Machine Gun' is finally destroyed

The Canadian Infantry catch up & add support to the attack

With losses growing Rickenburger heads for the main bridge, but his SPAD is knackered

BOOM!  Up goes the US Armored Car, with horrendous losses the US force is broken & retreats

Great game, both bridges became horrible 'bottlenecks' & really slowed the advance.  The next game we'll include extra elements from Hordes In The Trenches, when the US Strikes Back!

Sad reading for the US public the next day lol!!!

Mr Farrow,

Wow! One of your best ever battle reports ... and if it was as interesting to fight as it was to read, then you must have had great fun fighting this wargame.

I look forward the Anerican response.

All the best,

Bob

Cheers BoB! We (Jenny/Amy & I) had a good laugh playing it. It did take a few sessions though, but having the permanent table set-up helped a lot. However Amy did not approve of Jenny sending Freddy RickenBurger ALL over the table, a few 'choice' words were had!!!

All the WW1 planes have perked their interest. I've had to dig out GDW's classic 'Blue Max' game, so I've been shot down a few times since..lol

All the Best

O Canada! A great start to the campaign for the Canadian veterans, a pity about Moose though. I'm hoping to see a Japanese naval landing report soon as well.

Cheers Natholeon!

I'm pondering a 1920's Japanese Army... We#ll have to see!

All the Best
