I finished painting two more pieces amidst studying for my licensing exam: a refurb of an old hasegawa kublewagon which will come in handy as a Forward Arty Observer, and the two crewmen from the PSC Panther Set.
A couple of MG bunkers I refurbed from the Fujimi battlefield set from my childhood. I think they will look great on my Normandy maps and be valuable defenses against the invading allies…
I used dead leaf fine foliage from woodland scenics to resemble brush that was canopied over the bunker to disguise it from air attacks.
Last Weekend Lauren and I played a large platoon level game around Caen where the Germans and British are meeting at a town towards the center of the board. The objectives are located in a few of the key buildings in the town as the Germans are tasked with shutting down the onslaught of British Armor Probing for a bridgehead. Below is the board layout from the German’s perspective.
And here is the PDFs of the two forces:
Some shots of the Germans from their point of advance:
A Shot of the Main street from the East:
And some shots of the British at the start:
Some Brit Armor Makes it way up the flanks to capture the ville and the first objective:
While a 17 Pdr is deployed to cover the main road:
The Panther Creeps up to take a position on the other side of the hedge:
While there is some armor action in the town center:
And a Firefly takes out the Stug IV:
An Achilles destroys a probing Puma While a Marder also falls victim:
As the Achilles advance up the road and one is sniped by a panther:
Some more action and close assault in the town Centre:
And the Typhoon utilizes a successful airstrike against the advancing column of Germans:
With the Germans Suppressed and running low on battle counters the Achilles sweeps towards German HQ (pictured below) and the final objective the farm:
And the remaining Panther is destroyed and the farm/HQ captured as the battle counters for the Germans Expire:
Great Win for Lauren who was commanding the Brits! Hope you enjoyed this AAR!
