We used Rapid Fire Reloaded as the basis of our rules for this game with some areas not covered imported from Rapid Fire!2 where we felt it enhanced the feel of the game. The figures and tanks are mostly from Warlord Games, the Grant being a notable exception from Colonel Bill and unattributed. Terrain is by The Last Valley enhanced by jungle pieces I created from plastic aquarium plants. The buildings were from Mutineer Miniatures originally. I'm not sure who sells them now though. Despite the circumstances, and the result, this was a very enjoyable game. This collection doesn't get out on the tabletop battlefield as much as it might, so it's good to see it enjoy it's moment in the sun.

Carrying On Up The Jungle!
Phil and I met today for our weekly game here in GHQ. Sue and I had spent most of last week and the early part of this week dealing with builders, roofers, bankers, internet service providers and Severn Trent Water so the game I set out was a WWII Burma game, as the terrain is quite bespoke and simple to lay out. I'd determined that the Japanese, led by the gallant samurai Onamoro, would be attacking. To win the game one tank together with one infantry unit must exit the table on the Imperial side. Brigadier 'Mad Phil' Rawnsley would lead the imperial forces attempting to block the Japanese advance! As is my wont, a photomontage follows presenting a feel of the unfolding action for the interested reader ~
