Seems to have fixed it. I can see the pics (all except the "Bersaglieri on the West Side" -- can't see that pic). But I didn't try to see them before. So I am only half of the data. Works now for me, but don't know if it didn't work for me before.

In any case, very good looking battle. The table was richly varied -- woods (or are the very large orchards?) with roads, a town and a village, a coastline, hills, so much going on. Makes maneuver as much a part of the game as throwing dice, which is always on my list for a well constructed game!

Also interesting subject matter. Modern Italians -- not very often that I see THAT on a game table.

Greatly appreciate the posting. Good stuff!

Nice looking game, Ben! I have played and enjoyed the Fistful of TOWs 3 rules as well. I need to get a game going again one of these days.

Nice terrain and minis plus an interesting fight - keep them coming.
Tactics are the opinion of the senior officer present.

Another 6mm IABSM game played last month at Gigabites Cafe was a action during the Seelow Heights campaign. Elements of the 26th Fallschirmjager and 2/8 Panzerabteilung hold off the 220th Tank Brigade and 1054th Rifle Rgt. A much more one sided affair that it should have been with the boggy Oderbruch assisting the defenders. But enjoyable as always.

I will echo what Redleg said. Another excellent looking game and AAR. I am working on painting more buildings right now. I noticed that I have some of the buildings you have. Yours look really great. Keep up the good work, Mark!

I will not normally edit a contributor's posts. But in this case -- there was a (repeated) small error in Mark Luther's formatting, such that his pictures were not showing. And NOT seeing the pics of Mark's absolutely superb game was more than I could stand. So I have taken the extraordinary measure of editing the post to correct the formatting errors and bring those pics into the thread.

Carry on.

As always, a great looking game and terrain board. Captures that desperate spring 1945 mood!

Thanks, MkI I do not know why they did not post as usual. I did the normal formatting.
Thanks again.
