I could go to a local club, or could convert another local to the cause!
|A gentleman's agreement 'huzzah!'|
I should add that I tried to teach Dave J once before, but I was also watching rugby at the same time and thus had divided attention and was drinking so not really giving my best - or really any teaching what so ever.
|so these are shermans...|
Having spoken with Andy I knew he wanted to use his own models so I did a rough list with what he had - it came out at about 840ish points of CV german infantry.
|the rules andy lives by|
This worked out quite well I thought for a teaching experience, as they could see the difference between infantry and tanks, and also the mixture of Fearless vs confident and trained vs veteran.
I set up the scenery for them on a nice small 4 by4, I decided against the traditional free for all and went for a version of no retreat. I'd decided that as they understood a few basics (about hitting and motivating) I introduced a couple of special rules, like ambush, reserves, smoke and recon. - I also warned them that if the dice didn't do what I wanted I would alter their results - i had certain things i wanted to explain...
|Andy Dislikes Dave's tanks|
So Dave basically doubles up behind some woods, the rest hang back.
Andy understanding ambushes pops his pak40's and very irritatingly destroys daves tanks!
|Dave attempts to assault - how will I GM the Dice?|
Sadly me crofts StuG's arrive and win him the game.
|Dave hope to understand his force|
So hope that inspires you to get your mates involved, or conversely if you have better methods of teaching let me know!
