Second World War, Disposable Heroes, 28mm 

I bought a section of British Paratroopers in 28mm at Partizan, and used them in a Second World War skirmish game using Disposable Heroes rules. The objective was to capture or deny to the enemy an abandoned German quad flak gun hidden in a ruined building somewhere in Germany. Well, supported by other British troops I stormed the building, only to find the back garden was full of Germans (including some weird-looking armed civilians).Skirmish%20Game%20-%20BritiNeedless to say my heroics led to naught, as my men were hosed down by automatic fire at point-blank range. Well, not to be outdone my fellow British commander decided to follow the second part of our orders, and disposed of both the flak gun and its towing truck using a PIAT!Nazis%20in%20the%20back%20gWe then beat a hasty retreat, pursued by catcalls and MG-34 rounds. I can’t say I knew what I was doing, but I’m prepared to give the rules another go – once I’ve painted up a few more figures!
