My inability to ever win the initiative combined with Bill's indestructible Panthers have conspired to mean that for the first time in the campaign, the Germans have advanced...

Report to follow.

No Firestprm troops were destroyed. Matt I assume you want those two moved back to C2 as that's one of the territories that grants Pete a bonus at the end of the campaign if he holds them. Pete, do you want the Panzergrens to follow the Panthers into the gap or to hold position where they are?

It would help if we knew which sector you were talking about...

Bravo Bill, bravo! And the panzergrens can follow, sounds like a good plan...

He was attacking so therefore the only sector that the Panthers can attack. I think it's D3, it has artillery and infantry in it.

Things we, either Kieron or me, learned from last night:
1, If you don't negate or destroy panthers they will win the game. (I rolled a ridiculous number of 6s for top armour & side armour saves.)
2, TOT the unit that is hit has to reroll the save.
3, If you advance onto an objective that is within 10 inches of a board edge where the reserves arrive you will be assaulted. (Phew, failed the panzer grenadier roll.)
4 Panzergrendiers get 4" extra movement if they..... but not if they are a gun team that fired this turn. (Don't forget to roll for it. Dohh!)
5 HMG and other gun teams only get a 3 + save if they did not move or shoot.
6 Stuarts are great at the sacrificial lamb mode Very Happy  (added 3 turns to the game at least!)
7 On a smaller than usual table artillery has a disproportionate effect. There is no where to spread out to. Shocked 
8 Cornfields "area terrain" treat them the same as woods for artillery and infantry. You have to be within 6" of a stand to target it. If you have deployed your guns in a cornfield you are dependant on your observers. (That was why I survived the artillery bombardments)

I thought I had lost the turn my Stugs went and Kieron had a side shot lined up on the Panthers. But those 6s turned up again. Don't you hate dice games Exclamation

Good fun that.

Bill

*Peers at map*

Ah, yes, there are panthers at the bottom there, so it looks like an attack from D5 into D3.

Yeah, move the firestorm troops back to C2 then - anywhere else they could go already has two firestorm troops in any case.

Once you've done that, consider yourself busted down to corporal, and assigned to cleaning the latrines, for losing that territory.

I think this shows one battle too many left (and the panthers are still there) but shows the land held at the moment...

Are the blue tanks in D2 the panthers that have such amazing armour?

No, those were wiped out in an attack on C2!

The blue tanks are French Shermans that are poised to whip round the German flank...

Btw I haven't been able to get the new map up as I'm still having pc issues. It's the same as above but without the Panthers in D3.

We've not played this for a while... anyone fancy a game next week, after this week's special guest event?

Sunday is good. Are we at Pete's? What points?

Huh, my previous attempt at a reply here appears to have disappeared.

Assuming Pete mans up, we'll be his, he's said Sunday is ok as long as he recovers from his very mild cold.

Points is up to you, I can do up to something ridiculous like 4000, although that's a touch ambitious for an evening game. Since there's firestorm troops, 1500 maybe? Or even less than that?

I think the rules recommend 1250 + firestorm, so how about that?

Finally updated the map from the last game. Managed to get it done and uploaded just before my laptop decided to shut itself own for no apparent reason.

Ok. I've been waiting a year to enact my cunning plan to win the war in three moves, so I can wait until Sunday. Very Happy
