Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German (SS)American
Airborne troops had broken the German resistance at Carentan during the fighting on the 10th and 11th for the causeway into the city. Another attack on June 12th met only rearguard resistance, and Carentan was finally captured. The 506th advanced southwest of the city and dug in for the night. The next morning, Colonel Sink had the regiment attack westward, and to the surprise of the troops they met counterattacking armor and infantry elements of SS Panzergrenadier-Division 17 supporting their old nemesis, Fallschirmjager-Regiment 6.

2019-04-27(D) Andy Goldin vs David Ready German (SS) winMy Americans managed to hold off the attacking Germans for a few turns until casualties began to mount. David's Germans then got a penetration on the American right flank by moving through the woods and successfully made for the exit. Highlights -- or lowlights -- were my 8-1 going berserk and convincing his squad to charge a nearby Stug and accompanying infantry. As you can imagine, that didn't end well. Oh, and then there's my AT gun which fired at an approaching Stug, missed, then intensive fired and... malf'd the gun. They didn't get a chance to repair it, since the Stug got a "K" result on it's overrun. I had a few 'snake eyes" but didn't have the good dice when I needed them. David played aggressively, took chances, and won. Depending on where the defender sets up the ATG, a German attack on the woods using the Marder to make a trail break seems to be the way to go.
2018-11-04(D) Allen Evenson vs Bill Slunt German (SS) winWest Coast Rumble Round 4: I setup my defense mostly in the middle thinking it was tough for the AFVs to go through the woods. Bill masked his forces on that side and I had to shift over. Th AT gun did take out one AFV but it the other 3 were able to sprint off after breaking gun crew by turn 4. I then had to try to get 13 more CVP in the two turns so attacked remaining German infantry. It Didn't happen.
2018-08-12(A) Stephen dedier vs Johnston, Mike German (SS) winMike and I are continuing our e-mail run through all of the WO scenarios and I am learning a lot from him. My Germans pressed with the thought of 2 vehicles each on the left and right flank with the bulk of the infantry pushing up the middle shaded right. I hoped to split his Bazooka's and force the AT gun to contend with an all out run of 4 AFV's off the board from both flanks. His stout defense in the middle forced me to the right with 80% of my infantry and a 3rd AFV to assist. The Marder successfully trailbroke the woods but was held at bay by a concealed Baz (broken early but rallied quickly. This developed into a fight for the woods where the Germans were fortunate enough to get a DC on the American Baz team and did a good amount of destruction. The Paras mowed down any infantry that tried to cross into the town and escape so they would up supporting the sprint of the Stg's. Without the Baz support, all three Stg's were able to make a break past the cathedral and get off the board with only a couple of low probability shots from the AT gun in the orchard center. The Marder made a break for it and luckily was missed by the Baz holding him hostage and also exited the board. One or 2 die rolls the other way and this scenario might have been very different. Lots of fun, looking forward to WO4
