Niclas and Christian designed a nice scenario with a historical touch for our match.
|Part of the french village Marigny hold by the Panzer Lehr Division in late 1944, Normandy|
|Road to Marigny - concentration area for parts of the 1st Infantry Division and the 3rd Armoured Division|
The scenario was divided in different acts:
1. The german side will occupy the crossroads with a small force (about 120 points).
2. The US boys will start with 150 points.
3. With the first gunfight all other Allied forces (450 points) will enter the battle while in each further turn german troops appear as reinforcements at a price of 100 points till the limit of 600 points will be reached.
Some impressions of the game in pictures:
|Supported by a M3A1 Halftrack and a mortar two troops try to cross the forest to reach the first crossroad|
|The Krauts holding the crossroad with a StuG and a rifle group|
|After a short exchange of bullets with casualties on both sides the 3rd Armoured Division started the main attack with 2 Shermans and a M10 "Wolverine" Tank Destroyer|
|Suddenly a big "cat" appeared within the village. Immediately the US forces split to outflank the StuG and the Tiger|
|This poor Sherman went left and was hit by the Tiger a turn later. The crew survived the attack but was shocked. Another turn later a second hit knocked the tank off. The crew abandoned the tank and fled.|
