This weekend I was able to get in another game for the WWPD Operation Overlord Campaign. It was also a good opportunity for me to get my Americans out, they haven't seen the light of day in a while.
Unfortunately I didn't have the new Overlord book with me, just Devil's Charge.
|The board, there was a lack of Bocage. These Villagers kept their land clear.|
So I fielded a US Cav Recon force.
My company had two understrength Cavalry Recon Patrols, one mounted, one dismounted.
A full M5 3in Gun Tank Destroyer Platoon with two bazooka. Three M5 Stuarts, a battery of three Priests and three M4A1 Shermans with one M4A1 76mm Shermans.
|Veterans all around.|
My opponent, Brandon, was fielding an SS Panzergrenadier company.
His force contained two SS Panzergrenadier platoons, a platoon of 81mm Mortars, two Pak40's, two Tiger I's and two StuG III's.
|I didn't get a really good picture of the Germans.|
We rolled for Meeting Engagement as our mission with me as the attacker.
|The American setup.|
|The shorties go after some infantry and the 76 takes on some bigger prey.|
|I used my 2iC as bait for the second tiger.|
|The 3in Guns ambush and take out a Tiger.|
|The Stuarts arrive from reserve and move up.|
|The Sherman's surround the last Tiger but it survives.|
|The stare down continues.|
|The Tiger won't die.|
The Stuarts come on from reserve and push up towards the right objective. My Command Greyhound kills his 2iC and chases after the panzergrens on the left of the board.
|The Stuarts advance as the German reserves arrive.|
|They set their sights on the Shermans.|
|The Tiger manages to bail the Sherman 76.|
|Defensive fire devastates the assaulting SS.|
|The Sherman remounted and hit the tiger but it saved.|
