I swear, the time I've spent at that game creeping silently up on convoys, under electric motors at 4cm a turn, lining up my torpedoes with agonizing precision, and getting nowt....

But I turn up hungover, go full-tilt at the convoy, zipping between the escorts (and peppering them ineffectually with 20mm's for the sheer hell of it) and get a tanker!?

Next time we play, expect antics that make Sven Hassel look like Alan Bennet.

Dammit!!! I'm now going to spend the rest of the day trying to rid my mind's eye of the image of Alan Bennett driving a Panzer IV through Camden Market. Or Maggie Smith living in one, parked outside Bennett's house.

Great report! And inspiring.

I've a cardboard crate full of 1/700 Tamiya, Aoshima and Pit Road plastic kits I picked up dirt cheap here. Japanese and Allied light craft, including everything from PT boats through patrol boats, lighters, trawlers, and tugs; on up to LST's, destroyers, and the odd light cruiser. Even aircraft.

Just waiting for time and a fun, decent set of rules. I'm thinking of Tokyo Express scenarios, and to somehow tie the results in with our Bolt Action Pacific games.

Ronan? I can't see anyone would mind too much, other than his opponents, of course; they'd miss his dice rolling.
