    Good report. Liked the right up. Was not always sure how the photos lined up with the comments, but it was an enjoyable report. Keep it up and get more allied wins.

    Good description of the action, but would have been better with the pictures. It’s hard to tell what was happening without pictures, but you do know that you have to start your turn on the objective in order to hold it, yes?

    I believe there’s some good tutorials on the home page (maybe in the Axis forum as well?) for putting a the reports together. Some pictures and a PDF of your list would have made this all the better, but there’s always next time.
