RSVP, Iron Painter, and Case Yellow Turn 1 Recap

Hobby Night was a blast! 
It also marked the start for Operation Case Yellow, an Early War Flames of War campaign we are running. Three games were played in the first campaign turn, with six fully painted (and based) armies being displayed.

Khairul's Luftlandesturm Kompanie fought a tightly contested battle against Arzmi's French Infantry army. The game was a real nail biter to watch as many game-turning moments rested on a die roll. However, in the end the French were able to hang on and prevent the German airborne troops from securing their objectives. French Victory!

In the second battle Shukur's French Tank Company duked it out with Nahri's German armor. The game went very quickly, with bold thrusts made by both sides in a battle that saw much of the armies missing off table in reserves. In the end, Nahri's German tanks proved to be too much for Shukur's own armor. German Victory!

In the last grinding battle, Mark's British Infantry managed to gain the upper ground against Iqbal's Leichte Pionierkompanie and eke out the win. French (Allied) Victory! With three games finished, the results meant that for the first turn of six the French combined forces won the turn. Looking to our campaign tree, this means that tonight everyone will be playing the "Hold the Line" mission from the main rulebook. Good luck to everyone!

The usual Warmachine/Horde frequenters were also present last week, bringing along various nicely painted Colossals and Battle Engines to the table. It was a pleasure having you guys hanging out during Hobby Nights!
