Here is a bunch of pictures in during a 2v2 game with Richard, Mark, Pat and I. I tried out a camera I got and still learning to use it, I tried messing with manual focus but I think that didn't work out so well in some photos. Also I think the F stop was set to low because the depth of view was not that good on some. I believe the game was a 2590 pts a side.
|The field of battle 8' by 5' board|
|Some close of of the terrain on the board|
|Terrain terrain oh my!|

|pow pow pow|
|fail to kill anything here.|
|Our Jet flies in and kills 1 and bails one.|
|another view of center.|
New turn, the rush up the center with what is left the the middle forces trying their best to surround and crush the infantry.
|hull down in front of the Magachs|
Pushed out of their fox holes what is left of our platoon will try to dig in next turn.
Placement after a bloody pounding from tanks, infantry and artillery fire. This was followed by an assault from the infantry. We are pushed out of your fox holes, pinned and reduced. (didn't I just tell you this earlier?)
Our turn to get some pay back, an attempt by our air to bomb the front lines. (note: another mistake was we forgot to roll for firepower after planes were hit) Mark shoots from our left with the Magach 3 platoon. Followed by my shooting from my reserves from our right.
|Burning tanks everywhere center stage.|
|1 su100M alive without a platoon leader stuck in the woods.|
|I finally lost a tank from my reserve units.|
|noting seems to hurt these guys hold up in the woodline.|
|152 battery still not pulling their share of the fight.|
|Magach start to move to defend objectives and safe the infantry.|
|surrounded the last 2 infantry get charged and fight!|
|random dice roll during the game, I don't know what it means.|
|bye bye infantry platoon.|
|consolidated in the woods.|
My other tanks start shooting at the enemy, followed by my mobile artillery who moved at the double to get in the action.
|scratch a few more tanks.|
A very fun game had by all. Great company and some good times! Though I am slowly building up my own force of Egyptians I have realized how tough it can be for the Egyptians army. I think they were handy caped by teaming up with the Jordanians.
Happy gaming and do share what you play also!
