Takin gembloux gap part 6

Post by Jiefu »

Entertaining once again. Checked out terrain notes in campaign, found nought on the quality of workmanship of garden walls. I'm sure that will be a point of discussion when we reach that game. Stated to be 5 feet high.

"He might have well have brought a wheelbarrow " should be on my next T-shirt- however, I a bit bewildered that neither of them chose an infantry section as support .
75mm iG or MMG do not pack the punch and versatility of an infantry section.

I notice Rich's first JOP no angle measured or distance just placed against the table edge - which is how we play it too when the angle is self evident and the patrol marker is less then 6"

We are now at 17m first turn Rich has deployed his MMG in the woods with no LOS rather than at his other JOP across the table on the other die of the field where he could lay down fire to suppress Nicks defences when he deploys.
Lets see what happens folks

OK second phase Rich has put everything down in the same spot in a narrow arc against the table edge....hmmm wonder where Nick will set up his defences?

So Nick gets 3 phases in a row - knows where ALL the enemy is deployed and brings on nothing but his tank - WTF????

As Nick thinks about manning the barricades a la Misirables I cant help thinking he could have bought an off table mortar battery and been pounding those woods for a few tuns by now?

New rule as soon as you see 2 or 3 sixes on a single dice roll your mind just takes a walk :D

Did Nick just put his tonk on overwatch from a Ci from a SL rather than spending a 3 on the tanks JL?

and Rich uses a support 75mm iG team to call in a Light mortar fire so that blows our recent discussions out the window Seret - anybody can talk to a LM team even a NAAFI canteen worker!! :lol:

Te fact the LM team can fire out of the middle of the woods make our pla ytest rules for mortars in the Jungle not firing moot too?? Len??
