Prairiecon Photo dump

It's been a while but training has take up a ton of my time recently. Thankfully I got to play in a 4000pt total war game at Prairiecon with my Buddy Lance and his son and fearsome competitor Brody.

This was my first Total war game and I have to say I like the format, reserves is always good, and with recce and paras coming on at unusual points(compared to a normal game) there was a great balance and a real sense of fog of war.

We played on the 8th of June and as a demo we figured we might as well represent the forces that fought on that day in 1944. Lance headed up two companies of Canadians from the 3rd Div, one armoured and the other Infantry.
