My apologies for the dodgy photos, but these date from the per-digital camera era and have subsequently been scanned so I can use them here.
Based on the 1943 Tunisia campaign, the game was carefully cast, with the British 1st Army players being experienced gamers but new to Megablitz, the US 1st Army being another new player (Wayne Thomas) and a friend of Ian's who had never played a toy soldier game before. 8th Army was in the capable hands of experienced but cautious players. The experienced but numerically weak Axis were in the hands of Bob Cordery, Chris Willey, Chris Kemp and your humble correspondent. The Axis team was soon being openly referred to as 'The Four Old Nazis.'
The table layout took the form of a reversed 'F', the top 'prong' being the coast along which British 1st Army were advancing. Inland, across the djebel were the Yanks while 8th Arny appeared from the bottom of the upright after a long march from Alamein.
Axix forces in the north preparing to meet the enemy.
Elements of 8th Army (I think) encounter some Italian outposts.
The Italians are put to flight but there are some tough Germans around...
The view from Tunis.
Eventually, though, sheer weight of numbers told and the 'Four old Nazis' were last heard of bickering over places on the last U-Boat to Italy.....
