'A gaping silken dragon,/Puffed by the wind, suffices us for God./We, not the City, are the Empire's soul:/A rotten tree lives only in its rind.'

It begins...

After a beautiful long holiday weekend, with three days of serious Lego 'Star Wars', Transformers, and Lego 'Heroes' conversation with my grandson, some gardening and allotmenting, the Big Man test game has moved forwards, slightly:

Things appear relatively peaceful at the rural HQ of the Departmental Milice, with only a solitary sentry on duty. The local Resistance have decided that the ultra collabos need to be taught a serious lesson, that the HQ needs to be destroyed, and the local Milice unit wiped out.

But the Miliciens have been tipped off, and have laid an ambush on what they hope will be the main axis of attack on the south-western road into the town.

Meanwhile, on the eastern approaches the Resistance machine gun team move up to cover the main road to prevent reinforcements for the Milice turning up. 

While 'Felix' (Big Man status II) moves his men up, with 'Petit Jo' (Big Man status II) and his boys in the distance, moving to attack the HQ from the rear.

And Alain Draylon (Big Man status II), with the local Resistance supremo, 'Hairy Pierre' (Big Man status III), head, unknown to them, into the Milice ambush...


  1. What joy! let's hope Draylon an' the boys realise what's going on before it's too late!..

    1. Draylon can be guaranteed to be cooool, whatever happens. Think Delon in 'Samurai'.

    1. At last ! I'd almost forgotten what a war game was.

    1. Reasonably typical, perhaps. I hope so.

  4. Johnny French will get a surprise whatever happens.

    1. Too dam' right! Jolly good wheeze of the old Rosbifs to supply weapons to both sides.
