Zig and I tried out MSH for the first time yesterday. The played the "Broken Arrow" scenario twice, switching forces for the second game. The Iraqis won handily both times. I think that for two rookies, the scenario really favors the numbers-heavy Iraqi force. Any casualties the Israelis suffer are three times more devastating than their enemy's casualties. I really liked the game and although we did a few things wrong, we had a good time. Chalk it up as a learning experience.
I've put together some more proxies - enough to play the second scenario, so we'll give that a try in a week or so. I think we're going to play FoW next weekend. I'll probably bust out my Armored Panzerpioneers - I just finished the second platoon a few weeks ago.
