There’s something decidedly odd happens at a wargames club whenever a unit or army makes it’s combat debut. Units never cover themselves with glory, whilst new armies invariably lose. Often both happen. Like when Dave’s new Flames of War US Rangers tangled with my Afrika Corp sporting their brand new Tiger . . .
Here the tiger advances warily. Trying to smoke out . . .
. . . Dave’s ambushing Shermans.
Luckily the Tiger has a bodyguard (since it didn’t hit a thing all night)
Here what’s left of a Grenadier platoon bravely hang on to an objective. They were shortly to die under a hail of Sherman MG’s, but not before they accounted for two Shermans. You’ve got to love those PanzerKnackers in an assault.
Elsewhere my brave 8-rads advance.
