A small village in southern Tunisia surrounded by desert. A small road through the town paralleled by a rail line. Jerry is moving aggressively towards the ville, you need to deny it to the enemy.
Dust Up is selected, I get initiative and move rapidly into the town, trying to get a couple good pot shots on the Marders.
|Shermans make a move into the ville|
I don't get a single hit and am seriously exposed!
|Stuart platoon covers the right flank.|
(We're using the dust rules and the desert is hard pan all acting as road terrain. Good for me!)
|7.5cm Leichtgeschutz 40 and Marders|
|Sacrificial Stuart platoon to the rescue|
|Kohlenklau parking lot!|
|FJ's are early to the yard sale.|
I'm starting to wonder if I can hold onto this...
|Just a couple Marders to go!|
|That last one by the building has a named actor as a crewman.|
After this there was a bunch of stuff I forgot to take pictures of.
We kill a couple 8cm tubes with a TOT from the 105's.
Immediately afterwards the Cavalry arrives and threatens the other objective.
FJ assault attempt on my dug in Combat Engineers, yeah bad idea. Pinned but with two HMG's we get just lucky enough.
CO lighting up a Pak38 platoon and killing the command team and a gun.
Cav patrols showing up on the left to harass his center and right, threatening the objectives and then contesting them.
At ten we wrap it up as a draw with me contesting an objective with reinforcements. BUT I failed a reserves roll so well...
