AmericanGerman (SS)
Colonel Reuben Tucker personally appealed to General Gavin to allow his 504th Regiment to attack Cheneux. Friendly civilians had reported a large column of German vehicles, including tanks, encamped there. Normally an American infantry regiment would request a battalion of armor for support before making such an assault, but Colonel Tucker had an ace up his sleeve. His men had recently captured a whole truckload of panzerfausts, had practiced with them, and now were ready to use them on the enemy. Combined with the early arrival of the latest model of bazooka, Tucker figured his force was strong enough to carry out the assault alone.

2018-07-20(D) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S German (SS) winAnother run at some of the tank rules. In this one, Andy and I got to try out armor on armor, which was a nice bump up in complexity from our last armor game. I set up pretty far forward, but tried to avoid any LoS to his big leaders off the start. I set up an MMG and HS on the far side of the hill on my right, and it paid off huge. I think part of that was unfamiliarity though. Andy set up a little wonky, and we noticed after the fact that he probably could have made a much better go of it if we had used some of the edge case tank rules (smoke pots and the like). As it was, Andy's initial pushes got lit up pretty badly, and we ended up calling it on turn 3.
2018-02-26(D) Jeff B vs Phil Wentworth German (SS) winAmericans dodged bullets early when the hidden gun blasted the 10-2 and stack and came away with only a broken squad. Unfortunately for them during the German PFPh the same gun obliterated the stack with a multiple KIA. Turn 2 saw them continue their eastern flanking maneuver while another force crept forward up the middle. The M36 wisely positioned itself to make the German attempt to protect the northern building difficult. Turn 3 saw the Germans generate the first of their three heroes, but the eastern flanking Amis were coming dangerously close to their objective, while the M36 still kept the Germans at bay. Turn 4 saw the Germans go on an incredible ROF tear. Not with the HMG, but the MMG (which happened to be directed by the 9-2). The flanking Amis had reached the doorsteps of the northern building, and both sides lost a squad to FTR in the close confines. Meanwhile two leaders were going mano-a-mano in the woods in melee. The Germans finally braved moving some men toward the building, and repositioned the Whirlwind as cover there for added measure. Turn 5 saw the one Ami squad up north bust all but one half squad (who generated another hero), but he couldn't survive the return fire. Down to trying to desperately rush the middle building, the Americans were shredded to a man on their last turn. Great game and fun opponent.
2017-08-10(A) David Garvin vs Jeff Donigian American win
2017-06-28(D) James Lowry vs Tom Arnold American win
2016-12-17(A) Allen Evenson vs Richard Jenulis German (SS) winAmerican Turn 5 a US squad and 9-0 leader was able to get into CC in the O10 building concealed. They successfully ambushed the single German SS squad needing a 6 or less to win the game... It didn't happen. I went on to lose the game. Fun Scenario though.
