@oriskany you are really spoiling me, armoured bulldozers, AVREs with facines, Churchill bridgelayers, Sherman flails & DD tanks! If only there was a bicycle unit and it would have been perfection! 😉😁👍

My Grandfather served there He was also at Dunkirk so he must have got sick of French beaches. Being a short fellow he ended up under the water a lot.

Great looking table, very impressed with the sheer size and scope of some of the games so far!

Let there be no doubts that @oriskany knows his stuff …

What were those logs and why is the direction so important ?
I’m assuming it means they weren’t meant to impale incoming boats/tanks, but to have them expose the soft underbelly ?

The boat rides up the slope of the log and either hits a mine placed at the end or be tipped over.

Huuuge table!
Good looking stuff.
21st Panzer ‘funnies’ versus Hobart’s Funnies, that would be an interesting scrap.

I like the look. I’ve never played in or seen a game of command decision not played in 6mm
