This time is was a smaller game, and based on the 800 vs 400 point 'Capture the Bridge' scenario in keeping with what Steve and Ken had done over on Sound Officers' Call.

There are some very powerful mechanisms at work here - and there was some discussion as to how they can easily be used for modern skirmishes and/or man to man style games.
Thumbs up...and many more games to follow. Now Steve is also talking about a great way in which to register the command point use and/or morale points over at his blog, though he will have posts around this later I suspect.
I was also watching command point markers (we used tiddlywinks) gather up on the back of Panther during the game, when I realised that a coin with spent shell casings (to scale) on it, would look superb - I have actually used these in 'Field of Battle WWII' - as originally suggested by Brent Oman in that ruleset for units that have fired. The more interrupts and firing, the more shell casings gather at the back of the vehicle - just a thought.

Infantry in cover can be tough to shift, until you blatter* them with SU152 fire that is!
(* blatter is a well known technical term in this neck of the woods...used in a similar vein to decimate, flatten, pancake, splurdge, destroy and give a proper seeing to...)
