So that's reason #1. The other reason is detailed below.
Here's my band Old Tin Shed playing a gig in the coastal town of Wonthaggi in Victoria. And yes... I need a haircut.

Today at the club it was O Group. I played a game last week and got a taste for a bit of WWII action so we had another game today. Last week it was Normandy but today was Sicily - Op Huskey: The Seaforth Highlanders against the Herman Goering Div in game loosely based on the 5th Seaforth's attack on Francofonte. I normally post my WWII stuff on a separate blog but I thought it's a bit pointless doing that and better to keep stuff together . So I decided to post this here instead.In reality the defenders were fallschirmjäger but I never did get around to finishing my battalion so I had to compromise. For this game the HG Div were a worn battalion with Confident status. The Seaforth's were regular. I basically took some general elements from the battle and the battlefield to make up this scenario. Today: I played the Germans and Michael played the brave Highlanders.The Seaforth's start-line is the wadi. Vehicles can only cross via the bridge. The German defence runs from the vineyard to the cemetery near the centre. The objective is to clear the buildings representing the outskirts of the town.
It was another really enjoyable game of O Group. I've recently been thinking over the past couple of weeks about selling off some of my O Group WWII kit or, at least, rebasing for smaller games. However, the games over the past couple of club meetings make me think that I should keep it as is. Although I feel I do need to add a bit more Allied kit to my collection.
