Wednesday night I received a telephone call from a distressed friend, codenamed Guido. He really needed to have a miniature game to quell his wargaming addiction shakes. So I suggested Disposable Heroes. I loaded my utility with terrain and figures, told the wife I was going out, and I responded priority 2.
Guido had his desert board set up on arrival. A quick throw down of the terrain and we were off. Guido is a WW2 German fanboy, so I immediately told him he was playing the Australians to put him off balance. The game centres around three house. Two house were worth one victory point each. One house was worth two victory points. Whoever has the most victory points wins.
Without going into too much detail the Afrika Korps came on from the left, Australians from the right. A good old fashioned brawl broke out, punch for punch. Both sides took a 1 Victory Point house. Guido got into the 2 Victory Point house but was driven out by well placed fire from my HMG and LMG's. I had no spare men to get into the vacated house. Both sides were worn down to the point where we could do no more and after 2hrs30mins the game ended with a victory point each. DRAW. Both sides lost 17 killed.
