Wednesday 6th December.
|"There's a moose ,loose ,aboot this hoose!"|
Being near christmas and snow,we are led to believe, is just round the corner Colin Jack's latest escapade was a winter encounter between Soviet and Finnish forces at the start of World War Two.Bill Gilchrist and myself headed out for the rather windy climes of Garvald and on arriving found a rather nice table set up for our evening's entertainment snowy effect and all.
|Not a gritter to be seen.|
|A couple of Shug,s creations.|
|Frostbite about to kick in.|
|Russian churchgoers looking for an armchair view of the battle.|
|Brrr!It looks cold|
|Sneaky hiding place for one of my tanks.|
|Posing for the camera.|
|One of my tanks with the Finnish Hakaristi suitably rubbed out for our German readers.|
|Some of my gallant lads.|
|And their ystavat(Finnish for friends)|
|The Soviet hordes|
|bringing their evil dominance|
|to the Finnish people.|
|Bill's forces emerge from their dastardly hiding area.|
|"That's a big one(In Russian)"|
|Revenge from another angle.|
|Peppering my lads.|
|The Soviet steamroller moves on.|
|My lads appear ready to dish out some revenge.|
|Which they do in style.|
|My sniper team looking for a target of opportunity.|
|The magically appearing Soviets.|
forces of right.
|And Santa appeared to see who would be on the naughty list.|
Colin Jack supplied all the Finns with Colin and Bill Gilchrist supplying the Russian infantry and armour.I'd painted up some winter Germans only to find there were no Germans involved in the scenario which was also supplied by Colin as was the scenery complete with Russian Orthodox church.
Hoping to have one last game before Xmas so I'm hoping to put on some Xmas type game probably involving some armed elves.
See you when I see you.
