Having a few days off for the Thanksgiving holidays, I decided to re-post some more Wars of Insurgency battle reports from the active and enthusiastic Nunawading Wargames Association. Since they post their AARs on Facebook group, most readers are unable to access them unless they join their group. Plus, I think readers of Lead Legionaries will enjoy their humor and excitement, as well as the models and creativity they show. So enjoy!
An overview of the village where most of the battling BushWars campaign contingents ended up
OPERATION “HOLY MACKEREL”
...or in this case, "Don’t be late for the flight!"
| The goal of the contingents: Board the flying boat and get the heck out of there!
Last night, several national contingents - New Guernsey, Omovo, PKL and Zevonia - were operating along the coast of Khenefria and at a given point in time converged into an area where it was known that a flying boat was moored. A race developed as to which national contingent would embark on the flying boat (a Beriev Be-6) and fly to safety.
| All four contingents had to march across the board and find clues or equipment to help them
(Side note: civilians were in the area to offer information to contingents they were questioned by. Some were ambivalent, one was enthusiastic, but most were downright hostile, even aggressive! Several soldiers met their end from a well-placed kick!).
| The New Guernsey contingent hopped on board the dubious and flammable transport of a fuel truck
| The Zevonian contingent advances along the edge of the board, hugging the cover
| After a long and harrowing run, the New Guernsian hijacked bus crashes into a building
| One squad enters the village, peering around the corner for signs of their foes
| Omovans and Zevonians take cover and begin to battle it out in the center of the village
| Interrogating locals could end up helping a faction (or not!), as it did with the Omovans
| No report of factions attempting to interrogate the elephants (despite their reputation for memory!)
| The formerly peaceful village erupted in gunfire as the four factions made their way slowly to it
| Sneaking through a grove of palm trees towards the outskirts of the village
| The firefight in the village gets more intense as the end of the game nears
| The Zevonians hurry down the pier and pile into the waiting flying boat to make their getaway
