Tim and I have completed the first two battles of our El Guettar campaign. Each battle represents one game turn. The first battle was Hold the Line with the Germans defending. Tim brought a Panzer Grenadier company with lots of dismounted grenadiers, some Pak40s, a couple 88s and some artillery. He also brought some air support. The US forces consisted of a Tank company with some Shermans, Lees, M3 TD and T19 artillery. The US has sporatic air support.
The battle was close and a real nail-biter. The US pushed hard for a single objective and lost a tank platoon right at the start. Things quickly turned and the US pulled out a 5-2 win.
The battle was Breakthrough with the same forces. The US was the attacker again. This game was a first for me in that it was the first time that I used a smoke barrage and actually had it work. The US would take this game also by a 5-2 score.
The US is off to a good start in the campaign, winner the first two games and capturing the first objective - Kasserine. The cost was high. Here is the scoring so far:
FoW FoN 0-0-0 Bolt Action 1-0-0 SAGA 0-0-0 Kings of War 0-2-0
Black Powder 2-0-0
Warhammer Quest 1-1-0
Warhammer 40K 0-1-0
Here are the games I play regularly.
Flames of War
Black Powder SAGA Bolt Action
Kings of War
These games are played every so often.
Wings of Glory
These are the games I dream of playing or am building forces for.
Then there are the games that have been retired. Not all of these are bad. In fact some are really great. The reasons for retirement are varied.
