6mm 21st Panzer Dvision attacking elements of British 3rd Infantry Division (supported by a Yeomanry regiment).
We used club terrain, 6mm models and BKCII rules, and due to a small error on my part, (I used the wrong calculator for the Brits), it was 3345 points of Allies keen to capture two vital crossroads - running into 21st Panzer coming the other way.
My phone camera unfortunately died after set-up, so I am waiting for Peter to post some of the shots showing Typhoons stalking the Normandy country-side, while burning Shermans litter the fields.
So here's the terrain:
|Typhoons stooging about - looking for some trade - Roger Wilco|
|British Command unit supported by Recce Regt Cromwells|
|British advance rapidly to the edge of the central village - Yeomanry in the lead|
|A similar group enters the leftmost hamlet|
|German Fallschirmjager plus Command beside the sunken road|
|German Left, PzIV and Rommel's 'Funnies'|
|The Typhoons first air strike|
|The anti-aircraft fire misses and German casualties start|
|British 25lb unleash a massive stonk onto open topped AFVs|
|But the British armour on the right cops a pasting|
|The Recce Regt and supports also take a beating|
|Oh - Oh, the boys in blue are back..|
|In the village, the Brits consolidate|
|View from rear of Brits left|
|The real winners a British artillery regiment|
|Fallschirmjager successfully close assault the remnants of the Recce Regt|
|German left moves up to cover the sunken lane|
|And get's hammered by 17lb AT, the Firefly, artillery and air attacks|
Cracking good game. Neither of us had played in a while - but I felt like we got through it all with minimal mistakes. Cheers!
