Operation Cobra is in Full Swing and Patton’s 4th Armored is Smashing Forward!

The Rules are Spearhead.  The scale is micro armor and the battling was awesome!  The game table was divided into 5 sections with a player on each section.  This is to allow fast play and a better defined objective system.

The U.S.  4th Armored players each had a mixed unit of Shermans, infantry and various support to include Recon.  The German players commanded 2 remnant Infantry KG’s each with some AT support.  1 Ost Truppen Cavalry unit…go Ray go! and 2 Panzer KG’s.

U.S. players had an air strike per turn and off board arty.  The Germans had one arty strike and that was it …

Play was fast and furious, with the German defenders doing well until the very last turn..where the far south Panzer KG broke.

Thanks to Phil for some awesome US troops, Todd for some awesome Germans Troops, and everyone for a great game!

November 19 1942…Stalingrad is surrounded and someone has to hold the bridgeheads for a counter attack!

Using Spearhead rules with micro armor mini’s.  The Germans are made up rear area support units.  Their only job is to hold the bridges at all costs

The Soviets only victory condition is to take the bridges.  If any Soviet forces survive and the Germans still hold the bridges …. well commanders will be shot and a German decisive victory will be awarded

Rules;  It is a night action  sighting is 3 inch for inf and 6 inches for vehicles.  Each turn every player rolls a die after initiative phase and on a 5 or 6 gets a flare marker.  This flare marker has a 3 inch radius and turns that part of the board to day for sighting purpose.

Many heroics preformed but the Soviet armored commanders did not press the attack and both bridges held and a Decisive German victory was awarded

4 commands on each side

bypassing the heights..a bit time consuming.
