Well, I said I'd cue up another couple of posts...and here's the next.
Another game (my third!) at Dark Star in Plymouth, and another newbie. This time, though, I fielded my nascent German Heer Grenadier Vets...and this is their first outing on the blogosphere!
This time, I was up against C and her shiny new Fallschirmjäger. Happily, this made for a fun match for my veterans; unhappily, I forgot to take a photo of her beautifully painted new Kradschutzen motorcycle and sidecar.
The game was really, really fun, but sadly we forgot two things: firstly, that we forgot the special rules for her Fallschirmjäger, and secondly that I forgot that in this first, 500pt round of escalation, only one of my two squads was veteran. Bugger.
C was an absolutely brilliant opponent and a joy to play against. Her recoil-less 105mm medium howitzer, on the other hand, was deeply unpleasant.
|The 4x4 table from my table edge (bottom). Five objectives|
and that brutal 105 is plumped right on one in the top-
right sandbagged emplacement.
|My NON-veteran squad advances on the right...|
|...as do my ACTUAL vets on the left. The 105 traverses.|
|The German lines, being thinned.|
|Toward the end, my brave, brave veteran sniper finally|
gets some support in the shape of my 251.
6MMG shots is brutal.
The very welcome return of COLONEL GRAVIS!
