KB Mission Milne Bay Chain of Command game

Post by mluther » Wed Jan 24, 2018 10:37 am

I've been anticipating playing this game for awhile.  It was the reason I originally picked up 2 Ha Go tanks a couple of years ago. 
It takes place on the north coast of Milne Bay in a coconut plantation around the Kristian Brothers Mission, the night of August 27, 1942.
A unit of Australian infantry travelling light has just taken up position among the trees when they hear tank engines and hundreds of Japanese voices chanting. The night was just about to get hotter than normal.
William was the platoon from the 2/10 AIF and Rob was the Japanese SNLF of The Rabi landing Force.
The Aussies had no support weapons including the ATR or even the 2" mortars and had to rely on sticky bombs that unbeknownst to William not only wouldn't stick but had mold in them.
The SNLF had 2 Type 95s Ha Gos in support.  We used a modified Probe scenario for the Chain of Command rules and 20mm minis.

It should be Kristian Broders Mission. I didn't catch the autocorrect.
Sorry for that and thanks for the comments.
