BelgianGerman
Overview:
On 27 May, the Germans renewed their offensive on the Lys River line. The Belgian 11ème division d’infanterie was unable to withstand the German attack, and a gap appeared in the Belgian lines. The only reserves available were the Groupement Morel de Westgaver consisting of two carabiniers cyclistes regiments and some AFV from the chasseurs d’cheval. This group was tasked to close the gap near the village of Knesselare to allow the 11ème DI to regroup. German Heinkel bombers had severely punished the village, destroying the church and rubbling or setting fire to much of the rest. Forward elements of the group pushed through the village just in time to delay the German advance guard, and heavy fighting quickly erupted.

Last Played:
2017-04-23(A) Rich Weiley vs Dave Wilson Belgian winHeld on for a win as the Belgians. Held the Z6 building throughout the game with the help of the AT gun and the 9-1 directed MMG. The German turn 3 reinforcements bypassed Z6 and headed for the main village where I had only two and a half squads anxiously waiting on the reinforcements. The attackers drove out the garrison of the N5 building and contested the G4 and J6 buildings but the counter attacking force eliminated the Germans in the former and reinforced the garrison of the latter, putting victory out of reach for my opponent. An excellent scenario with high replay value.
2017-04-22(A) Jeff B vs Steve Etzelmueller German winI must be missing something because I don't see the Belgians standing much of a chance in this one. They are forced to heavily defend the forward building to prevent a quick German victory, but if the Germans send a token force to clear it and the rest press forward the Belgians won't be able to extract the forward defenders in time and they will be caught between a rock (the pressing Germans) and a hard place (German reinforcements). Reinforcements will probably end up being a turn too late to prevent a toppling of the next building, and then they will never get it back.
2017-03-29(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Federico Corso Belgian winThis is a highly replayable scenario, with many options for both players. In my opinion is going to become a tournament classic. I put enough forces in Z6 to keep germans out, and slip back some during the second turn. Some good shot on my part and bad morale rolls for the Germans, meant that they were not able to really threaten the second building.
2017-03-29(A) Andy Beaton vs Jeff Wasserman German winHeld on to Z6 without a dice pip to spare, came close to pulling it out but lost a building in a last German turn CC and didn't have the forces to get it back in time. Excellent scenario.
2017-02-19(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Belgian winFantastic scenario. As the Belgians I put a max effort in defending the Z6 building and my opponent put a max effort into taking in for the quick win. In a bloody toe to toe fight, my Belgians held onto the building for 4 turns and the Germans had suffered just enough losses to keep them gaining a second building for the win. So in the final turn, my Belgians managed to hang on and get the win.
