Anyhow, I survived the onslaught and the Saturday game was done.
IT was a Secret of the Third Reich game with very little weird units.
Scenario: The Thing that should not be.
In short, a German convoy carrying a Thing is ambushed by a partisan force. The partisans have to take the APC containing the Thing. As the partisan had little fire power they had a second item. One of the vehicle carried the chief scientist, but which one, they didn't know.
The 2 forces were a little less than 50RP.
- 2 unarmored transports
- 1 sdkfz 250 with pintle HMG
- 1 sdkfz 251 with pintle HMG
- 1 sdkfz 222 with coaxial HMG and a L gun
- 1 APC carrying the Thing, unarmed
- 1 HQ, 2 MECH squad with 1 LMG each and 1 squad with Panzerfaust, 1 Pioneer with 2 flamethrowers
- Veteran, body armor
- 1 Partisan Hero
- 4 Partisan bands with Molotov and weapon mix
- 3 Saboteur teams
- 1 HMG, 1 LMG team
- 1 4-man 2nd hand APE squad as Support (1 Flamethrower, 2 LMG, 1 HMG)
There was fun molotov throwing, burning 3 out of the 6 vehicles, instant kill with German flamethrowers and some surprising bullet dodgers.
Ended up as a draw
|The convoy. Partisan Hero, one band and the APE are in grenade throwing distance|
|The card represent what squad in what vehicle.|
|The Partisan Hero, a French Templar|
|HMG team that will never fire a shot|
|The LMG team that will be burnt|
|Foreign Legion APE|
|The rest of the bands on both sides of the road with the saboteur in the wood|
|Same view from another angle. a band is hidden in the tower.|
|A partisan band is wearing old French army gear.|
|The wall between the squad will save these guys from a HE Panzerfaut blast.|
|first shots. The APE are down, 2 vehicles are burning but no bailing out|
|One of the platoon trying to hide in the building. The vehicle was on fire, the building caught fire too|
|Turn1 German casualties. Almost half the platoon|
|Turn 1. Few partisan casualties. The bright side for the Germans is to have taken out the HMG and LMG teams|
|End of Turn1, you can see the APC doing stupid things.|
|In the forefront the building is in fire, while the Sdkfz 222 shot the wooden building killing 4 partisans with the blast|
|The Partisans are keeping the convoy from moving|
|Turn 3, as you can see, the APC has not moved an inch....|
|The partisan also wear German uniform in a very casual way.|
|The Tower, a dreadful view for the German, but little impact. The Partisan player trying to find a way to kill my poor soldiers|
