It has been a while since the last post, mainly because I have lost my capability to blog from my phone due to me not being able to utilize the Wifi connection in my apartment (for some strange reason it kicked me out and after multiple attempts and different solutions it still hasn’t come back).
I have been very busy on the table recently mostly with major terrain projects which I will blog later. I built 12 feet of bocage as I was impressed and had coveted the bocage on Tim Marshall’s awesome site: http://www.ucs.mun.ca/~tmarshal/terrain/bocage/bocage.html
I also built a few scratch-built building which are also featured in this AAR along with an entirely new road system. I will blog more on these later as well.
So to test out my new terrain and scenery, I put together a little attack-defense scenario using BGO rules. The US forces who are the attacker starting on the top edge of the board making their way through the bocage towards the town: US list and German defenders: panzer list tasked with stopping the US from holding the important crossroads that pass through town centre. Each side was allowed 600pts. Below is a view from the top/town side of the board. At the top you can see the brand new thick/tall bocage which will now be a regular in all my Normandy games.
Due to my time constraints as I write this I will not be doing my usual blow by blow, but instead will set up the pictures taken during the game. Because the game was so exciting, I stopped photographing it at a certain point. The Germans pulled off a stunning victory as they hurriedly dispatched the American Armor with the Tiger Ace and Panther. We had so much fun playing this scenario, that Lauren and I left the board up and played it again the following day, but switching sides. Again the Germans were victorious and in spite of playing with less points and BR, it was clear that this scenario favored the defending germans. Hope you enjoy!
