Yes, John Meyer and I faced off at Terry's on Friday. Egyptians vs Persians. My Egyptians were able to put to flight the Persian right flank and then turn inwards compromising their center. Although Meyer's morale was broken before the Persian right completely collapsed, he threw in the towel when one Egyptian unit of chariots poised itself to attack the center from a flanking position. I re-read the rules this week in preparation for the game but FoG still leaves me unimpressed. I'd want to like these rules but the mechanics continue to seem burdensome and not too elegant.
18mm SYW Project:
The two squadrons of Austrian dragoons and Swiss foot are finished just in time to count towards the June painting totals.
15mm Narvik Project:
The following armor for the Norwegian front have been completed: 3 x French Panhards, 3 x French H39s, 3 x Germans PZ II. When I pulled the Peter Pig French alpine infantry, I came across one Peter Pig H39. That single model is in the priming queue. Joining the PP H39 in the priming queue is one Battlefront French Panhard. With those, I think I've exhausted my supply of 15mm armor.
June witnessed good production from a variety of periods. Once again, the SYW project saw four squadrons of horse and one battalion of foot completed.
Thus far, through June, I've painted 767 figures and 13 pieces of equipment. The SYW project added 154 foot, 72 horse, and 12 command figures and is becoming quite a large collection. I really should get them on the table for a game.
