Last week myself and Adam got to carry on our Operation Battle Ax mini-campaign. If you will remember from our first game, the Brits successfully captured the Halfaya Pass but had lost Sidi Omar. The Axis lost 10 companies, while the Allies lost 6 companies as you can see below.
So I think a bit of a challenge for the British, but at the same time the Axis have a significantly diminished force with which to re-capture Halfaya Pass. Otherwise it would be a marginal Axis victory.

|Initial Axis plan was to retake Fort Capuzzo which they lost on day 1 one of the battle.|
|The 11th Indian Brigade pounded Sollum throughout the game.|

It was quite a fun game and the scenario worked well. I hope to expand the scenario into a mini-campaign for all 3 days of the battle. It did appear to work well for the ruleset.
