Advancing with Mr Churchill

Making the most of the Easter break it was good to dust off my late war British for a Spearhead game. Due to my opponents armies I tend to find myself using Germans so deploying the British was rather appealing. My British Infantry Brigade in 1944 can be supported by Shermans and Sherman Fireflies or the slow moving and poorly armed, but well armoured, Churchills. After some consideration I opted for the Churchills.

Played over a few hours spread over a couple of days it was all that I hoped it would be. Well balanced with a number of tactical problems all combined with a little good luck interspersed with equal measures of bad luck. If you’re interested a few photos of our game can be found here.

Needless to say the game really reminded me that I need to get back to working on the British armour for 1940 France…
