It has taken us far longer than planned to get back to this campaign with a number of real life events getting in the way, but back we are.

The British continue to push on into the village of Fontenay in their attempt to drive out elements of 12th SS. This is the fourth game in the campaign and you can read the full AAR of that game with many more pictures here http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/ ... ck-on.html

Lovely table and a tense game. Hard to see yet another British tank succumb to the enemy before getting to do anything useful!

Excellent to see this campaign resume - and another tough fight and an interesting seesawing match. Look forward to seeing it unfold.

We now reach scenario 4 and the farm at St Nicholas. Historically this is a far as the attack got, can my British do any better and try to evict the Germans? It's a tough looking table for an attacker with a lot of open ground and few covered approaches. The full AAR is here https://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com ... iking.html

The Germans launch the Punch from Wunsche, an armoured counterattack from 12th SS Panzer Regt in an attempt to drive the British from St Nicholas farm. This puts the British on the defensive for a change. Can they hold off Wunsche's Panthers? It won't be easy. Full game report here http://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/ ... nsche.html

Another nailbiter, great stuff Mark. The extremely binary nature of anti tank fire makes for great drama, but the infantry always end up having to pick up the pieces. Looking forward to the next two games.
