GermanBritish
Overview:
Preliminary to the main German attack on Medjez, a position known as Fort McGregor had to be seized from British defenders. The forward outpost consisted of an infantry company with its platoons dug in around a bare, rocky knoll, with the entire position surrounded by wire. Since there was practically no natural cover aside from scrub, the Germans decided to make a night assault on the “fort”. . .

2019-03-25(D) Michael Rodgers vs Jackson Kwan German winBombardment created two openings in the wire. This allowed the Germans much opportunity to encircle the British defenders. The British can mostly just sit there and hope to pass their morale checks, although some of my troops fell back slowly towards the summit.
2018-10-08(D) Christian Knudsen vs Neil Andrews German winThis is actually a fun little scenario (and my first night play), although I think it's a bit in favour of the Jerrys, especially when I lower the NVR to 2 about as soon as was possible. Neil played really well. He used his high FP to force me to hide in my foxholes, and then managed to encircle my guys. His sniper was lowered to 4, but then was far more active than my SAN of 6 - it seemed like he rolled 1 on every sniper dr, and got some key results, whereas mine didn't do a thing. Also, I managed to fail some really key MC, and it is really challenging for the Brits to rally once the Germans are in the Fort. The replay will be interesting. Neil figures I put up too many starshells, so I will see what his strategy is on the defence. I started off pretty good, but the Brits have an uphill battle in this one against a ton of well-led, high firepower Germans. Now I am starting to run out of people to put up starshells, and it's basically just me trying to keep him from getting another 14 CVP in the last 2 turns.
2018-10-08(A) Christian Knudsen vs Neil Andrews German winBombardment went very well, eliminating 5 wire and 2 dummy stacks, and breaking 2 squads and the 8-1. He will get them back before I can get to them, but I revealed at least 1 of his HIP squads. We shall see how it goes. Long story short, I made my main approach (luckily) in the shadow of the hillock where his HMG couldn't see. So I was able to put enough units on the opposite side of him that when I managed to break his units, they couldn't rout away, and were easily snapped up in CC. Also helped that we spent most of the game at NVR 1, and a crucial 1/2 turn at NVR 0. Neil conceded at the beginning of Axis Turn 4, with 16 CVP against, and his remaining forces about to take some 30+ FP attacks in the prep fire phase.
2017-04-04(A) B-E Karlsson vs British win
2014-02-28(D) Richard Carter vs Dave Clemons German winThe germans were able to wrest the summit hexes. My brits fought valiantly but were overwhelmed. I love night scenarios and had fun as the defender though the space is tight and maneuverability is low. I think I risked some units by being too aggressive early on and it didn't pay off.
