Brigada Tripeira in Action: Battlegroup Overlord rules demo at Marsigor


General view from the gaming table
British entry - Left
German entry - Right (of course...)

That's righ guys, BT is always on the move!

Our outstanding Gn JF (that manages to win a wargame once in a while...) organized an Battlegroup Overlord demo game at Marsigor wargames shop, in the city of Maia, with the cooperation of our good friend Mr. Simão. 

This is a new set of wargame rules for us, related to WWII, that has a lot of promise to it and, as always, JF is on point when it comes to organize and paint all the necessary military hardware and scenarios.

This guy is what you can call a Super-Wargamer!

The game opposed an airborne British combat group against a German Panzer Division, in an "Attack / Counter-Attack" scenario (500 points game)

Over there of the right we can see our good friend Mário, who has been AWOL for a long time, but unexpectedly droped by this time, to check out the new rules.

Be sure to keep on dropping by dude!

It seems that the British side, played by JF, won this game (against guys that had almost no wargaming experience at all...), and now he can brag about it for the next year or so...

Nice going dude!

All in all, it was an great saturday afternoon, enjoyed with the company of good friends.

Thanks to Mr. Simão from Marsigor, for all the support!
