WWII Naval Campaign in the Mediterranean

I posted this last week on my local gaming group's Yahoo site--

Hey Folks:

Yesterday (6 Nov 08) I started filming my next YouTube movie: "Braving Bomb Alley."

It's a WWII naval miniatures game based on Operation Pedestal--the decisive
convoy to Malta.

Because of my rotating work schedule, I'll be playing this solitaire, based on
the freeware game I came across on the Webgrognards site:

ftp://ftp.grognard.com/download/games/board/maltaconvoy.pdf

With some modifications I'll be using this for the encounter matrix. But I'll
use Avalanche Press's "Bomb Alley" to conduct the actual strategic movement:

Tactical encounters will be resolved using Mongoose Publishing "Victory at Sea"

http://www.mongoosepublishing.com/home/series.php?qsSeries=41

And the actual miniatures will be Wizard's of the Coast's "Axis & Allies: War at
Sea/Task Force"

http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=ah/aam/waratseatf

This game's objective will be to get the SS Ohio (an oil tanker) and 4 other
freighters, out of a 14-ship convoy, to Malta.

Despite the solitairy nature of this game all of you in the local area are
invited to Stern Rake Studio (the family room in my home) and participate.
If/when I get a complete day off and there's no other conflicting events, I'll
send out an e-mail notice for the next session.

The situation so far:

9 Aug 1942, Convoy WS.21S assembles at Gibraltar.

10 Aug, the convoly along with 4 other task forces sets sail heading ESE and
manages to avoid Axis naval & air units throughout the day and evening. (For
those of you with the Game "Bomb Alley" the course is as follows: G21, H21,
I21, J21, K21, L20)

0800 hours, 11 Aug, the Allied naval forces are spotted by an Axis recon plane
(at M20).

Stay tuned...

Ted
