So we replayed the same mission, with the Fallschirmjager defending again against an Irish Guards Rifle platoon, with a Sherman armoured platoon in support, heavy mortars and two armoured car platoons (the Market Garden list allows one, but we needed to match for points the FJs). First use of Easy Army, as referred by Scott, before the match made life a whole lot easier. For just $2.00US you have access to all the Market Garden Lists, which is superb.
Before the photos come out, I must say it got it a little tense regarding rules and mistakes etc. Me and Steve probably the biggest culprits. I think we will chill out in time, just our enthusiasm getting the better of us.
Here are the photos from the night's action:
|A sleepy village in Normandy|
|The Fallschirmjager dig in and go to ground as the recon approaches|
|Chris advances the first platoon up the left flank|
|The Shermans advance on the right to sweep through the FJ|
|And the Pak 40s ambush them|
|But Steve and Zac forgot the objective on the left|
|The Germans start to push resources over to the left|
|The StuGs come on finally from reserve|
Geboren um zu toten aka born to kill (watch Full Metal Jacket)
|The mortars have a lazy day pinning platoons and never being shot at.|
I have brought in a few supplies for the Brits so expect to see more pictures of them shortly. We are all very FOW obsessed right now and have decided that DnD will indeed end so we can fit more games in.
