scenario took place in some imaginary valley in Sicily. The Allies
had to come in from one end of the valley, take the two small villages
in the valley floor and climb to the other side of the valley and take
the high ground. Of course, the Germans would be there to resist.
This picture is from the German side of the valley, with Tim's tanks leaving
their firing positions from the ridge and moving down toward the village.
Yes, that's a Corgi metal jeep there, being used as a light truck (in its
full colours from the Ant wars).
is a scene in the village to the left of the one shown in the above picture.
A reconnaissance force sent forward from the left by Tim has been whacked
by a small AT gun in the little green trench at the top of the picture,
with the APC buying it on the bridge. Another transport truck which
trundled down the road from the other village has also been set alight.
US infantry are clearing out the buildings of Germans, one of which can
be seen - after heavy contrast adjustment - to the bottom right edge of
this picture. Yes, those are paper houses with an Atlas suburban
building and another house consisting of two Matchbox Panzer II
dioramas joined together. The truck is Hasegawa and the APC
is an Airfix M-3, with a German Matchbox Hanomag coming out
of the woods. There's another AT position just below the edge of
this picture at the river bank. The visible infantryman is a US infantryman
from Matchbox; the German is Airfix.
A view from the Allied side of the valley showing the development of the
final battle at the hill top. A viscous hand to hand battle is taking
place in the woods at the cliff top of the valley while US and British
forces stream up the hill to the left to engage Germans.
