Playtest session May 6th.
We had another playtest session in the HQ club house. A nice opportunity to put my new buildings on the table, as well as my as yet not completely painted river tiles.
The surface of the table is not ideal, but it does the job. Here is the right flank attack developing. A Sherman on the right has already been taken out by a Panzer IV on the hill.
The Panzer IV has been eliminated. The two remaining Shermans cross the bridge and start firing on the units they suspect are hiding there.
Meanwhile, the left flank is a mess. Every attempt to cross the ford and cut the wire is repelled, and there is next to no advance.
The tanks break through. The one in front is about to be ambushed by a Panzerfaust hiding in the rubble.
After fifteen minutes of intense casualty taking, the CO has an idea: let’s fire some smoke.
