    Well that was certainly one of the best, and also most hard fought games of Battlegroup we’ve ever done…

    Into Metz


    US forces outnumbered the Germans more than 2 to 1 in men, tanks and support… and they managed to hold us thanks to clever use of the terrain… and God awful US artillery support. I don’t think I’ve ever rolled so bad…

    An initial defence by only five German units held the US initial attacks and then the German second line pushed back and even managed to counter-attack for a while on both flanks till one turn eventually went the US way and managed to punch through.

    Huge US losses compared to the Germans so a very costly victory and at best a minor one… Certainly the Germans provided a very tenacious and hardy defence that was akin to bearing your head against a wall for a time…

    They just didn’t want to give up Metz…

    …and big thanks to Diego who popped by from Argentina to Ireland for a game. 😀

    Yep, pretty damned spectacular. And well done Diego for (probably) the longest trip to attend a game.

    Brilliant sounding and looking game!

    What’s the source of those buildings?  Lovely weathering, just incredible!  Peeling paint on window jambs even, wow!  And that turbine looking thing is pretty cool too.

    And what is that green colored item in the bottom pix?  Is that a motorcycle and side car?  Just scenery?
