The road block is cleared and the troops mount up. AL troops dash up the road to clear any obstructions and meet up with the column as they now speed up the road. At this point another chance roll is made to see if the CMP get back in time to halt them. The AL win and they can continue with their mission.
We decided to take a further roll which we could have waited for the next game but thought now was as good a time. To see if the column reaches it’s destination without encountering an armoured patrol. Once again it was AL’s lucky day and they are set up for the next skirmish. They lost 7 (including one of the Archbishop's Guard) men & one van but still maintained enough troops to carry on to part 2 of the mini campaign.
