I've removed the forum in favor of this blog, and so felt it would be nice to preserve here my AAR from Williamsburg Muster. Enjoy!
Henry and Shawn seized the initiative early and kept it going for an INCREDIBLE duration, rolling 6's for activation no less than 6 or 7 times in a row. However Bob's patience seemed to serve him well, keeping his troops hidden for a long as possible and not giving the Red's easy targets. Slowly but surely, his well dug in Pak-40s picked off tank after tank, but it was when Henry decided to undertake a daring flanking maneuver with his heavy armor through the woods that things turned.
Bob, under cover of the woods, ambushed the JS2s with close ranged 'faust and 'shreck fire to their flanks, destroying 2 of the 3. The third tried to recover and counter-attack, but the foot troops took advantage of the confusion and managed to take out the last tank before it was too late. After that it seems the Soviet's luck had run dry. Panthers and more grenadiers arrived from reserve and the defense become near impossible to crack. The Soviets moral broke soon after.
Another platoon of dug in paras held firm on the other objective while a platoon of sherman tanks made their way in from reserve, but the thick bocage managed to destroy any chance of arriving in time to retake the church before the rest of my force routed.
Both games were a lot of fun and I gleaned a few small points I was to further polish in the rules. Muster was a fantastic venue as well. Made a few new friends and got in a bunch of other fun games before the weekend was through. Special Thanks to my best bud, Grant Ellis, for enabling me to participate that weekend and also for taking the pictures while I GM'd and played!
