In a repeat of the tournament set up from February, we had eight 800 point early war armies squaring off against each other in one hour games. No aircraft or heavy artillery or tanks with armour of 6 or above were allowed. Allied players were John (last year's winner) and Jeremy with Brits and Chris and I with French.
|My French stalk the streets|
|Chris' French advancing|
|Jeremy gets an armoured company|
|John's infantry supported by Matildas - wait - what was their armour again?|
|Paul's infantry advancing|
|Terry's motorbikes led by a man on a horse|
|German armoured army of Shane|
|The deadly Italians|
The end result was a narrow Axis win, and the top two armies were Michael's Italians and my French on 21 points each (this despite being beaten in my first game by Rose who was playing her first game - ever!!!).
So the decision was that Michael should receive the newly made trophy as he was on the winning side. It was duly presented by the previous champion, John, in an elaborate ceremony.
|John looks much happier giving it away than Michael looks to be receiving it.|
