Battlecry 2013 Moderns Game Report

Part 2 of the battle report

These photos show some of the games in action. There was a total of 14 games played over the 2 days so this is only a a few of them which I managed to get photos of.

Apologies to the players whose armies and games I forgot to photograph or where the pictures didnt come out well enough to use.

Soviets vs Finnish

I thought I'd start with my new terrain boards which I spent about 6 months making. A lot of work but worth it in the end. There's too much to explain here so for more details visit the "Terrain" section of this site for more details on the boards and the terrain on top.

More Soviets vs Finnish

Steves great terrain which has been admired for years by fellow gamers. You can see the very nice hedge lined roads and fields and the rows of popular trees. Also there is a scratchbuilt Motorway and bridge and the town is mostly Timecast buildings. The trees are all K&M I think and there is also some Z scale railway track in the last photo.

West Germans vs Belgians

And some more photos of my terrain boards. The first photo gives a pretty good shot of the road network and how windy it is! The second photo show a small lake I made and in the last two you can see some of the removeable trees and power poles I made.

West Germans vs Belgians

Belgian units advancing into the town area.

British vs Soviets

Once again Als lovely ferry and container ship models by Old Crow make an appearance. You can also see the Old Crow port and the coastline from Miniatureworld maker in Australia. The last photo shows Steves table which we used on the first day as a desert table and it includes some nice power pylons and a homemade motorway.

The tables part 6

And some more pictures of the terrain boards. You can see the river better in this picture although I never finished it in time for the convention. It still needs a couple more layers of resin water. The third photo shows an airfield with Mainly Military buildings and a Timecast control tower.

Israelis vs British

Another T80 with BMP2s army which gave the NATO forces a hard time. All GHQ models and nicely painted although its hard to see in these pictures.

West Germans

Dereks army consisted mostly of mechanised infantry in M113s with some Jaguars and Leopard IIs in support, and lot of very nasty offboard artillery like the LARS rocket launchers. A very effective combination as the German infantry is very well equipped with good quality AT weapons.

US Marines vs Finnish

This was an Attack Defence game with the US marines, who were mostly infantry, defending. The US marines all started in hidden positions and weren't revealed until they fired or moved, or were automatically acquired. The Finns suffered quite a few losses and the game ended up being a draw.

US Marines vs Finnish

Finnish recce coming under attack from a US Marine platoon. The second photo shows T72s and BMP1s advancing.

US Army forces

More shots of Steves US forces. These photos show the Bradleys, M1s and a slightly blurry photo of M1s and Bradley advancing past a Granary. All GHQ from what I can tell but the camo really breaks up the outline of the vehicles.

Soviet Motor Rifle vs British

My army consisted of T72s with BMP1Ps and BTR60PBs. The first couple of photos show the T72 company with supporting ZSU23-4 SPAA and a ACVR battery commander vehicle. The T72s and BMP1 are CNC and the ACRV, BRDM3 and ZSU23-4 are all GHQ. My BTR60s (not shown) are from Scotia and nice models.
