This should be my last post from the British Isles. Mover's come Tuesday then it is off for a month's holiday in Europe before we head back to the good ole' USA. Blog should be up and running by end of August-- mid September. Have been playing some Bag the Hun and my P-38 "Headhunters" are getting a workout.
WW II donnybrook is about done. Just need to work on the vehicle rules. It is still a little too deadly but most people prefer that anyway. To see if it would work with just a squad a piece I set this small scenario up in France. I didn't use any of my Platoon Forward platoon's because I wasn't sure it would work. Using PF I rolled up an american squad and sent them into the town using the "Patrol" scenario. I did not roll up the Germans but gave them a squad for this test. To allow better tactics at this small of scale I gave each side a Grade 0 ASL.
Inspired by War Panda's blog I decided even if I can't paint like him maybe I can make my story a little more comic book. I don't have Comic Life 3 but decided to use photoshop. I think it worked pretty well but was time consuming. Let me know if you like this style and maybe I will repeat it.
MISSION: Take a patrol into the town up the road and see if the Krauts occupy it.

After the germans make it into the church a firefight breaks out. The 5 man rifle team takes casualties as the the US BAR team. Then Sgt Travers sees a back door to the sacristy.
