20mm Kokoda Track game

Post by mluther » Thu Dec 10, 2015 6:51 am

Being a Yank, I generally don't post my games here , but this one seemed appropriate:
This was a 20mm Chain of Command game played at Gigabites Café in Marietta, GA November 2015 It represents the stand of E Co 39th CMF Btn along the Kokoda track August 27, 1942. against the 1st company, 5th Sasebo SNLF.
I hope I did it justice.

That is one awesome game - great scenery, figures and more.
Would love to have seen that live.

Hey Mark,

Great looking game, champion effort!

Don't think you don't have to just post your Aussie themed games here, we locals post up our foreign games all the time :D ...

Cheers!

What a great looking table for the game, and of course the topic is a bonus.

This is disgusting - the author claims its 20mm wargame.

I am 100% sure I have seen this on WW2 footage - how dare they say this is only a wargame - too real to be true :D

Words cannot supply enough kudos for this set up. Utopia game !

Awesome work.
