No progress on the DBA-RRR front because of very poor service from wargamestournaments.com. I ordered (and paid for) £22 worth of 60mm mdf bases on the 8th August - and am still waiting for delivery. Subsequent emails have gone un-answered. Now I have to try to reclaim my money via PayPal.
On the DBM front I took Former Ch'in (List 2.21) to face Andy's Early Vietnamese. I ended up fighting against 3 commands with the inevitable result. Two of the enemy commands were near breakpoint but that was little compensation for a birthday defeat.
When John Smith returns from Partizan (at Newark) he will, hopefully, bring me some alternative bases - so normal service can be resumed!
