I realise that me being massively busy this week for Flying Lead this weekend, and thus putting off posting here, could be construed as being due to despondency on my part, or a symptom of some deep irritation.
So, now I am packed and wearing my frock coat at work I would just like to say thank you.
It is hardly surprise for an organiser to say thanks I know, but I am truly thankful. To my dear (departed) US soldiers, and their intrepid squad leaders, you never once balked, winged or sighed when I threw you time after time at the enemy defences.
I was fearful all day that I was now running a game that I would hate to play â€“ one side being thrown at a defender all day on a constant re-gen. By the time we were â€˜scheduledâ€™ for a German counter attack we didnâ€™t even have any ground to defend, so it all felt a bit â€˜meat grinder-yâ€™.
So your play, and comments, are most welcome and if anyone has spent the last week going â€˜that was a bit meatgrinder-yâ€™ I apologise, and we will endeavour to learn.
I thank the Germans (you bastards) for being damned resilient â€“ to look out and see shifting bodies of so much field grey was brilliant.
So I thank yaâ€™all, and I will contribute to thoughts on Ammo and bandages when I have come to a firmer conclusion myself.
Apropos of nothing, I've bought river cobbler fish this week.
BTW, I think Webby has a point. Though it didn't really impact on the gameplay, it does help with the immersion if there's a proper scenario that everyone is bought into.
