    What a way to break in a new table. The fight for the rear objective was much closer than it looks with the engineers being pinned multiple times. There was more fighting going on on the road but I could not find the pictures. We stopped taking many pictures at the end since it was a weeknight and it was getting late. Thanks again to my buddy Peter to taking the pictures and being a great player.

    Great looking table and good game. The paintjob on all of the halftracks really caught my eye.

    Tyler said...

    Not sure about everyone else, but I am getting mammoth pictures. Viewing this through Firefox.

    Pictures are fine with me.

    sweet looking game

    Had a great time playing on this awesome looking table. Look forward to our next game Brian!

    I have large pictures through Firefox as well and IE6. Seems okay in Chrome, so guess it is browser related.

    Excellent job! That table looks great. I especially like what you did with the lichen.

    Andrew said...

    Cool battle, did those Tigers even do anything? Where in CA are you Brian?

    Anatoli said...

    I too get king sized pictures, using firefox but I don't think it has anything to do with that. The pictures are probably not downsized at all but retained their camera setting (probably 3000x something).

    The Tigers didn't really do much during the game. At one point, after one Tiger was lost to flamethrowers, the other Tiger got bogged down on bocage for a turn. If I remember correctly the lone Tiger advanced up the opposite flank it started from and was taken out by M10s. Really need to get my PzIVs painted up so I can take them instead of Tigers :p
