Sharp Practice - Probe Part 2

I cannot believe how fast time flies by, it must be all the gaming I do.  Here is the second part of the probe at the bridge scenario that was played some weeks back.  I'm sitting on tons of pics that I have not had time to rep, but I wanted to get this one up to show how SP flows with larger actions.  I played the French throughout, but the poor British suffered with the change of commanders at every turn.  They were initially commanded by Herrodadog, but command was handed over to the boys after he split.  This didn't help the British cause much.

Secure the Area

This was my second game of Incursion from last week.  My Marines fared a lot better this time around.  This time I quit screwing around with the special effects in the Comic Life program as well.  This particular scenario was to infiltrate the area and secure three air lock doors.  Of course they were nice and spread out.  I took the chance and split my squad, something I am normally not too keen on doing, but it paid off.  The Marines have tremendous firepower and can usually keep their frontage clear but the sturm bombers are a serious problem no matter what because they can potentially do that little kamikaze thing when you smoke them.  I simply got lucky that only one bomber reached any of my guys and got lucky again on the die rolls.  All in all this was a nice little game and quite fun.

A quick Incursion

My friend Jil (Herrodadog) set up his own version of Incursion using 3D terrain that he made from foam.  It is very good looking stuff!  This was my very first game and I was controlling the two grunts. We used AT43 miniatures for the game.  Incursion is a simple game that reminds me of Space Hulk and it is indeed a fun game to play.

Song of Drums & Shakos Cavalry

My friend Justo (Uncle Greasy) and I had a great evening of Drums & Shakos not long ago.  Unfortunately the photos did not turn out well enough to do batreps because I was unfamiliar with the light settings at his place.  It is a shame because the games were very interesting and fun, plus it was our first excursion with cavalry. 
This game is really nice because it is simple enough to get in some games even after a long day at work. Here's some snaps of the table and games.
