Play Testing

Me and my dad were play testing the rule set we are going to bring out within the next few months, just thought we'd see how it looks so far and iron out any of the creases...

So the game was for the US player (me) to advance on the ville Plau Qu, capture and hold...I started off with a platoon sized force with my asset points buying me an M48 tank and a Huey Hog :)


Plau Qu in the midst of steaming jungle...
The M48 ready to roll forward...
The first few turns were uneventful for the US troops...and they managed to get right up to the ville with no contact...

1st squad attempting to clear a building...but failing to pull the pin out of the grenade before thrown...doh!
Second attempt...KABOOM...building clear :)
The VC start appearing from behind the US troops...!

The rest of the buildings in the ville were cleared with grenades and knocking out enemy entry points...also the M48 destroyed another building containing an enemy entry point...
The US troops hearing movement from behind them turn and face any possible threat...
VC advancing on the ville from the old French bunker...
The M48 takes aim and blows a VC squad off the board...
US troops in the ville take fire and try returning fire with little effect...
Command element taking cover behind the tank and attempting to call in air support...

Game outcome: US Victory, they managed to hold the ville and repel the oncoming VC with the loss of 3 men and a helicopter

The rules are definitely coming together, a few small tweeks needed...and tanks are very deadly :D

And for the fun of it we had a little play...just something different...a tank on tank battle...
M48 vs T55
Outcome: M48 is more likely to win unless the T55 can ambush the M48 from the side or rear...
T-55 taking aim...hit...but the shell bounces off the front armour...
M48 lines up a shot...fires...
and KA-BOOM...

We hope to release this rule set soon, those interested keep an eye out at shows in June/July and the Parkfield Miniatures website :)
