I am done with Release the Hounds. Am starting to look for a publisher now. Rich has stated he will publish Grunt's Forward- just need him to get around to it.
Before I get to our game report wanted to say that I went to NAS Oceana's Air Show last weekend. Oceana is the largest fighter base on the east coast and they put on a great show. My personal favorite was the WW II Corsair.
Now back to our game of Release the Hounds. As the S-Boats became more successful the British tried to form pickets outside the shipping lanes to detect them. These were backed up by destroyer "rapid response forces". I don't have any "dog" boats yet but do have 2 Fairmile Bs. I only have one British DE, a Hunt class. With these forces the British were determined to keep the S-Boats at bay!
2 Fairmile B boats with average crews.
1 Hunt DE as reinforcement with superior crew
4 1940 type S-Boats with average crews
Visibility 2500 yrds Sea state 4
The Germans spot the British at 2100 yards and turn to avoid
It doesn't work and two Fairmiles start to hammer the lead S boat with 3 inch guns.
Fun game that played fast. I thought 4 S boats could handle 2 Fairmiles while they out ran them; I was wrong!
