All troops in this game are 15mm, mostly Flames of War figs.
The village is by Miniature Building Authority.
The scenario was a modified scenario off of the Battlefront website.
The Gamemaster was Chris Rothermel, and this AAR is by him as well.
The scenario was a British attack on a German occupied town.
The Brits must break the German lines,
and take the town before the enemy can escape.
This was the 2nd attack on the town.
The 1st attack was a disaster
-British armor could not get past the ditch.
Many fell victim to the accuracy of the German Anti-Tank guns.
Having stalled the British frontal assault,
the Germans fall victim to the attack on their flank.
The ditch becomes a ditch of death.
The Tommies see a platoon of supporting Volkssturm,
and quickly disperse the young boys and old men.
Shermans try to run overrun the German defenders,
but learn that their haste can be dealt with by a few panzerfausts.
While the Germans put up a tough fight,
the sheer numbers of British troops were overwhelming,
and resulted in a British victory.
I’m sure both sides had a great time playing;
I know I had a blast GMing.
Our Turtle Award recipient was the famous Ray Bishop,
who decided to leave all his rolling abilities at home for this game.
