After watching the movie A Bridge to far the other day it put me in the mood to want a WW2 game as it had been quite some months since we last had our WW2 armies on the table top. Last year had seen us move away from the battlegroup rules, replacing them with the Ironcross rule set, so we picked 600 points of Germans (me) and Americans (my dad)which give us a decent amount of troops and set about fighting a meeting engagement scenario .
German Stug's and infantry squads ready to advance
A Pak40 anti tank gun and infantry squads taking cover in the woods along with CnC
The German infantry continue to hold the ruined rail staion despite attracting a lot of American onto their position
Three Stug's and a Hetzler are knocked out by the Dhermans having failed to cause any damage on the American Armour
Unfortunately the game ended before we could determine a winner,(the Americans were awarded a winning draw) this was mostly down to the fact that my dad and I were rusty on the rules after a long lay off from them, which led to us having a couple of lengthy stops rule checking during the game. This was a shame as I was really enjoy the game despite the fact I had managed to lose all my armour due to expert Marksmenship of the American Shermans but the stoppages proved worth while as we managed to 'iron out' a couple of rules we had been doing wrong up until now. We have decided to have have another WW2 game next week now that we have the rules fresh in our minds again, but this game definetly tweaked my interest again in WW2
