It was a tuneup game for me against a good friend who's FOW game experience can still be counted on one hand. He got a bunch of figures painted up and was itching to try them out so we did! :)
We did 600 points with my Fallschirmjagers, coming out of the to be released Cassino book (nothing in this list that ain't really in others...), and Brent's Paras coming from Turning Tide via easyarmy.com.
We were playing on a 4x3 table and the mission rolled was Encounter. I think I was the attacker.
I stole the table format from WWPD...
Brent's British Para
I started with the Pak 40s (in woods bottom left) and my Gebirgsjager platoons (in woods near my other objective) on the board. I screwed up the rule about how HQ weapons were supposed to deploy and I thought they were another platoon under the 2iC command. Was that version 1? :) Anyway, the mortars and the FJ platoon were in reserve. He had his DD platoon deployed between the field and the woods and the HQ teams right behind the objective in the top right of the picture. He had his para platoon in reserve.
Got 'em sir!
Turn 3 - I got my FJ platoon on and the scattered reserve roll had them coming on in the left corner. I moved them up the side. Probably should have doubled them, but I didn't... His para platoon entered the same corner and promptly moved into the woods near the yellow tape measure.
This pic shows the end of Turn 3.
The Gerbirgsjager move to the back side of their woods to try to bring pressure on the British Paras threatening the objective. Desultory shooting resulted in nothing happening.
At this point, my friend decided that he didn't have much more he could throw at my objectives and that he wouldn't be able to contest both of his, so graciously accepted defeat and conceded a 5-2 victory to me.
