Disposable Heroes The Second Battle of Cuito Cuanavale
All in all I think this game went pretty smoothly. I was worried that the tanks would have a massive impact, but acquiring, hitting, and damaging a target is not as easy as you might think. They spent most of the game dueling with their opposite numbers, while the infantry blasted away back and forth. I'm thrilled to be getting some use out of these figs, they have been gathering dust much too long! We used a mixture: infantry from The Assault Group, Devil Dog Designs, Copplestone and Eureka. Oliphants are Chieftain Models, T-55's London War Room, and T34/85 Hobby Armor Depot. APC's are HAD and Sloppy Jalopy. I like these games with soft and medium cover; before we were doing games with a lot of stone/concrete buildings, which means Disposable Heroes becomes huge amounts of dice rolling hoping for a 1 on a D10. With light or medium cover even less-than-average troops have a decent chance of hitting. Time to get painting, building more forces for future games!
