Here's the latest episode of my Son's Darth Maul campaign for those of you who have been following Maul's adventures. I'm way behind on posting due to work but will keep this thing going until Maul either bites the dust or takes over the galaxy. So far he's had a hell of a ride since coming out of retirement.
The Geonosian made a quality increase this game from Crack (9) to Elite (10). For comparison, Bossk and Dengar are Notorious (11) and Darth Maul is a Hero (12). The highest possible quality is Legendary (13) and that is reserved for only the truly exceptional like Yoda, Vader, and the Emporer. That one lucky shot has made him an instant rising star in Dengar's crew.

For the latest installment in the Darth Maul series, we opted to switch to Nick's action figures for testing the latest revision of our home brew rules. The figures are great for these small scale skirmishes because you can get a lot of expression out of them. All gamers should have kids so they can get away with playing with action figures!

Got some time off from work and got to play a bunch this weekend. Most of the group was busy so us stragglers decided to play some FoW and just chill out. Then I had a bright idea; "Hey George, let's do late 45 and Patton gets to rearm the Krauts. I'll be the Yanks, let Dave be the Germans, and you be the Russkies". Well, let's just say that I got what I deserved!
|Some of Dave's Germans advancing on our right.|
|Here are some of my Shermies motoring into an ambush.|
|My Sherman 105 support tanks in the center.|
|And here's the result of my getting ambushed on the left.|
|While I'm getting my ass kicked, Dave's rearmed Germans are taking names on the right.|
|He's pushing the Russians pretty hard.|
|Fortunately, Russian air support was not so good!|
|After demolishing my easy eights, the T-34/85s went to work on my 105s.|
|My infantry heads for cover and starts praying.|
|Dave begins to close on the objective.|
|Just as Dave got close to the objective, he discovers a couple million more T-34s hovering about. (we ran out of tanks and had to proxy some old Valentines)|
|And then the final ugliness. Dave was overwhelmed by all the Russians who had nothing better to do.|
