20mm Burma 44 game

Post by mluther » Tue Feb 14, 2017 12:14 pm

Greetings,
I was Jonsin' to get in a game with some recently finished terrain and models that were made for Burma 44-45 scenarios for Chain of Command.
I went with the Attack and Defend setup to allow me to use a troop of M3 Grants, a 47mm ATG and the scenery.
Brian and I were the Brits coming in with a platoon of infantry, a tank troop of M3 Grants and a pre game barrage. William as defender had a Japanese platoon of 3) 10 man sections and the 10 man grenade launcher section plus support to make up for the difference. He choose the 47mm ATG(with JL), 2) MMG teams, a AT team, a sniper, 2) minefields, and all the troops dug in. His position was a strong one on a rise with plenty of embankments. He made a real tough game of it

Despite some real bumbling and bad rolls on our part the Japanese Force Morale did go down to 3 finally. But the Brit infantry has no good thoughts about advancing now. There are still more actually Japanese defenders on the table than attackers. I lost 1 M3. Brian lost one section and had a lightly wounded JL and 4 or 5 other casualties. William lost the 2 MMGs and the ATG crews a couple of JL and a dozen men.
But I got to get new toys on the table so a win for me.

Great looking game, played well to from the sounds of it.

Love the Australian Roundels used against the Brit troops hehehe...

The Grants interested me I've never seen the Lee style turret (bottom half) on a Grant before I had to hit the net...I discovered the M3A5 Lee was used in Burma in the configuration you have used...well you learn something every day!!!

Thanks for posting.

The 14th Army Jump off Points weren't quite ready, so I went with the old Aussie ones. (Which are also getting redone btw0 A gaming friend is doing those for free so I am not complaining.
The M3 Grant is from Milicast which seems to be the only ones that have a passable model for the CBI. I had to use a 1/48 white star decal for the over sized hull marking.

Thanks,
Mark
