On a Hiding to Nothing
Saturday (22nd) - Cloudburst - large puddle in the kitchen and the water started to over-top the front door sill. I was lucky as one of my near neighbours had raw sewage flowing through his garden.
Monday (24th) - DBM scrap between Al's Later Crusaders and my Later Muslim Indians.
My able SG (Chris) did reasonably well in the centre and right flank. The Reg Bd(F) lost a few bases but caused quite a bit of damage in the process.
On the left flank yours truly had the C-in-C's command of Reg Cv(S) supported by Irr Bw(I) and a couple of Lh(O). My opposition didn't look too bad but then up popped some Reg Kn(S). I fared badly and blamed the match-up. I also thought that my Bw(I) might have done better.
Working out the tables, and allowing for 'superior' and 'inferior' status (plus 'quick kills') the results were not as I expected.
Bw(I) v Kn(S) = 58.33% Bw deaths / 27.78% Kn / 13.89% draws
Cv(S) v Kn(S) = 27.78% Cv deaths / 27.78% Kn / 44.44% draws
So, in theory, I had an equal chance! That's not accounting for the dice gods of course. Oh well - it's only a game!
Tuesday (25th) - taking cat to the vets - 6 teeth removed - £220 - eeeeeeek!
Wednesday (26th) - calling at Barnsley U3A Kitchen carpet finally drying out.
The trials and tribulations of a wargamer huh!
