Great game last night. I ran my Gepanzerte panzergrens vs Brian's US 3rd Armored. Sorry the batrep is a little short, I'm fairly busy but wanted to get the pics up.
Batrep and TONS of pics after the break.
I've found that people tend to enjoy the pictures more and the batrep less, so here's the batrep in one location, followed by the pictures. You guys tell me what kind of format you'd prefer. Should I try to take more overhead shots to make the overall battle make more sense?
Brian's 3rd Armored Division came rolling into town, preparing to capture the bridges. A platoon of stugs came racing onto the American's flank, hoping to catch them by surprise and throw the company into disarray. Unfortunately for them, the Americans brought everything to bare and wiped out the Stugs at the loss of only one sherman.
American Stuarts and M10s encroached on the Western objective, taking shots at the dug in infantry. Marder III Ms (who really deserve the game ball) wiped out two platoons of shermans in two rounds of sniping from a hilltop across the river.
A German infantry platoon made their way deep into American lines, and even knocked out the HQ tank before succumbing to withering fire from American mortars, and fleeing the field.
Now the situation was firmly centered around the Western objective. Brian softened up the infantry who were now backed up with Pumas with Stuarts and M10s. Wave after wave of assaults knocked the battered infantry platoon down and eventually wiped them out including the company commander.
The battle was now down to Marders and Pumas backed up by panzerwerfers, holding the line against the battered M10s, the immobile Stuarts, and the ever approaching engineers.
Finally, concentrated fire form the marders and the one remaining Puma finished off the M10s and Stuarts. At the last, whithering fire from all the German platoons knocked the Engineers down to just 1 stand who fled the field. The Germans were left holding the objective, but both forces were severely bloodied.
In all honesty, this was the absolute best game of FOW I can remember playing.
