The end of President Fred? part 2 - enter the hippo....
An overview of the field of battle. All toys and terrain from my own collection - except for Martin's splendid home-made hills.
The 'airport' - the plush terminal building can be seen behind the fuel tanker. The Mitsubishi van in the foreground belongs to the TV crew.
To add to the fun and offer more opportunity for atrocities I brought along a train, a village and a school bus!
Turn 1 - the P.O.O.F.S. successfully argued that the time they had spent training would allow a +1 on their firing. They soon set off for the airport with the intention of their victorious uprising being filmed and transmitted in the west. Sadly it was knocked off the BBC news schedule by an amusing story about a gerbil in Doncaster...
Fred's armoured column was soon on the move.
Mr Mellie and his cameraman at the airport.
Turn 2 - A successful argument (from Captain D'eath) specified that the amorous but short sighted hippo would get er, friendly with the lead armoured car. Here can be seen the hippo, the Saladin being f****d and the dice which led to the success of the argument. As can be imagined, this had the effect of halting Fred's movements for a while!
The P.O.O.F.S. were accompanied by a couple of 'technicals'. This one, an old Matchbox Morris is equipped with two MGs and crew by Peter Pig.
Spurned by the Saladin, the hippo moved on to the President's personal Saracen. Whatever next?
