More FoW action this weekend. This time around sees us playing some practice battles set in Italy, in preparation for an upcoming Firestorm: Anzio campaign.
Even though the terrain is boggy all around (difficult going), both sides are using armored forces. However, this 1,500 pt. Battle does feature airborne troops on BOTH sides - fearless-vet fun!
|Germans moving up along the dry roads. FJ units in the fields to their left head for the vineyard just ahead.|
|Only the roads and high ground are not boggy. Both sides can be seen rushing through the wet fields to get both dry ground and objectives!|
|My gepanzerte grenadiers move up and partially disembark from their 251 HT's to contest an objective. A small platoon of U.S. Airborne infantry heads through the wood to assault!|
|One of my Panthers is taken out by a 76 Sherman! The shot was on the rear of my Panther and I wasn't paying attention there. Too over-confident to be sure.|
|My 1ic can be seen looking out from his PzIV. Tow of his tanks have been taken out already by Shermans near the vineyard/ Ahead lies a platoon of U.S. Stuarts'; always a pain in the ass for my Germans!|
|Yes, those are the 'dead' FJ teams closest to me.|
|Panthers move to out flank the vineyard position held by the Americans. One promptly bogs!|
|The U.S. 1ic.|
