|Great opportunity for me to use my snazzy new German FO stand!|
|German FO smoke mission masks the Stug-III moving up through the valley|
|US Mech company dug in waiting for Gerry. The objective is behind them.|
|German light armor company taking full advantage of the small "mountain" pass that was only able to fit 1 tank through at a time.|
|US tank destroyers have it covered. Or so I thought. It took a turn to get the wrecks moved out of the way, and this company was on the move again.|
|meanwhile, German infantry in full view of the hill to their front advance to the farm.|
|German troops reach the farm and can start making out the US positions on the hill beyond the farm!|
|US Armor creeps up Gerry's flank.|
|The assault on the hill begins! The 251/9 is behind them. In this game, they are terrific in close assaults, with the "stummel" providing a firefight hit on 3+. The infantry guns are a must-have!|
|German armor swarms the objective!|
|meanwhile the German infantry assault on the hill is a success. They lose 1 stand in exchange for a US tank destroyer, infantry stand, and halftrack. They pass their breakpoint morale check and continue the advance!|
For my next WW2 scenario, I'd like to play some battles from the Panzerblitz and Panzerleader scenario boxes. Hopefully I can get my desert board finished but that is a long way off.
I may take some time off from WW2 and Modern battles projects to focus on some other projects I'd like to play, like my AWI-black powder conversion project, Axis and Allies Naval / Victory at Sea projects, WW2 air to air, and perhaps even Epic Space Marine and 15mm Ancients. These are all projects that have been sitting on the back-burner for a long time while I forged ahead with my 15mm WW2 stuff.
