Today, we did a scenario where a company of His Majesties 22nd regiment of foot are in East Africa trying to capture a town which has been arming and supporting rebels.
We randomised officers and amazingly, Mick, in his first game got command! He decided to role play an arrogant, overconfident officer who had bought his commission, Phil and I both rolled '1'!!! - and ended up with new, inexperienced Lieutenants. Lawrence, playing a senior sergeant was the only average commander we had!
