After enjoying issue #19 of Battlegames several times over the past few days, I've decided to set up my 6'x8' table once more this weekend and prepare for a solo game next month after the academic term ends on December 4th (It's about time!). So, this time, I'm going to take a crack at the Table Top Teaser in that issue, which is a two-part game, featuring a smaller preliminary action, followed by a larger set-piece affair.
I believe I have enough figures for the latter, especially if I reduce the force size a bit as the Grants (Charles Jr. and Charles S.) suggest at the end of their teaser. And I've even got a few 6' lengths of foam packing material to make the additional hills I'll need. Might need to replenish my supply of Olympic "Meadow Green" latex paint though, so that I can give the new slopes a couple of good coats before setting up the figures.
Goody, goody, goody!!! This game/project should be fun since I haven't had the table up following the Great Flood of May '09, which some of you might recall brought the e-refight of Sawmill Village between Jeff Hudelson and me to a premature end. When I informed the Grand Duchess of my plans late last night as we read in bed and took turns with Young Paul, she just rolled her eyes skyward. Can you imagine? Wives!
