|Great opportunity for me to use my snazzy new German FO stand!

|US Mech company dug in waiting for Gerry. The objective is behind them.
|German light armor company taking full advantage of the small "mountain" pass that was only able to fit 1 tank through at a time.
|US tank destroyers have it covered. Or so I thought. It took a turn to get the wrecks moved out of the way, and this company was on the move again.

|German troops reach the farm and can start making out the US positions on the hill beyond the farm!
|US Armor creeps up Gerry's flank.
|The assault on the hill begins! The 251/9 is behind them. In this game, they are terrific in close assaults, with the "stummel" providing a firefight hit on 3+. The infantry guns are a must-have!
|German armor swarms the objective!
|meanwhile the German infantry assault on the hill is a success. They lose 1 stand in exchange for a US tank destroyer, infantry stand, and halftrack. They pass their breakpoint morale check and continue the advance!
For my next WW2 scenario, I'd like to play some battles from the Panzerblitz and Panzerleader scenario boxes. Hopefully I can get my desert board finished but that is a long way off.
I may take some time off from WW2 and Modern battles projects to focus on some other projects I'd like to play, like my AWI-black powder conversion project, Axis and Allies Naval / Victory at Sea projects, WW2 air to air, and perhaps even Epic Space Marine and 15mm Ancients. These are all projects that have been sitting on the back-burner for a long time while I forged ahead with my 15mm WW2 stuff.
