We decided on 700 points as that's about everything I have.;-)
The scenario was 'Maximum Attrition', you get the picture; enter the board and start smashing each other.
The board is a good mix of hedges and woods with a couple roads, somewhere in Italy was offered as a location?
|Wehrmacht Sniper and spotter|
He has a Lieutenant with Plt Sgt and RTO
Two squads of Veteran Panzergrenadiers with many assault rifles and a few panzerfausts
Two squads of Inexperienced Volksgrenadiers with the same
a sniper team
a PzKpw II Luchs Recce tank
|USMC Scout/Sniper team|
My first kill was a veteran NCO by my Scout Sniper team on the right. (Sadly they spent the rest of the game celebrating this, as it was also their last. Very unprofessional guys.)
|Grunts moving up on the left|
|A frikkin tank!|
|Flamethrower team running from the Water Buffalo that's on fire!|
|Pushing up the middle|
|German Veterans advancing on our left|
|Veteran Landsers and VG advancing on our right|
|VG in the center|
(I used to be an A-gunner on these things and we could fuck shit up let me tell you.)
On my left Nathan and I are trading casualties. One here, one there and the din would have been huge!
Shooting is a single die for each rifle and goes up from there. Modifiers include moving (not for Yanks with M1's or BAR's though), cover (ignored by snipers), over half range as well as inexperience.
On the right my rifle squad was finished off by the huge volume of fire from the Luchs as well as the veteran infantry squad facing them. My sniper teams inability to get a single hit after the first was a bummer.
First we light up the VG's because they are in range, well one is in range. He burns. We roll and there is still some naplam left!
Guess what my, luckily, first activation is? That's right payback MFr! (120 odd points?)
|Jarheads pushing onto the objective, now just hold it!|
|The Germans haven't gone far, but are a continuous line|
|The firing lines face off on the left|
|After finishing the Marine squad on the right the VG shift to the center|
|"Next turn we are going to waste that damn flamethrower team."|
|Chesty is merely security here|
|"Now we roast a Luchs!"|
|Slugfest continues on the left|
And we call it for time. Nathan has wiped out my LVT as well as a veteran Marine squad.
I have merely killed his Pz II. So a narrow victory for Nate and a fun game for both of us!
I'll be playing this again and now I know what I need to buff up and what I need to leave at home.
