Northern Research Station: Tanksgiving Extravaganza

by Craig Baxter

Happy Tanksgiving from the WWPD Northern Research Center.  We recently had our annual Tanksgiving grudge match.  Ten players faced off against each other in an all armor cage match.  Everyone brought a 1500 point tank company and faced off for control of a massive 6ft by 8ft table.  We played eight turns and by the end the table was full of wrecks.

Players set up their forces.

The Germans ended up winning the game.  Allied players brought three air assets and they were fairly ineffective throughout the game.  I don't think they knocked out a single tank.  Meanwhile, the German air was very effective.  Ultimately the allies were not able to deal with heavy german armor, which won the day.
