awesome game ….made my morning……would have liked to see the german tanks on the other side of the river adding their fire in support of the defending force

Wouldn’t have made any difference but Hitler’s Buzzsaw rule does not apply for vehicle mounted machine guns.

From the American side, I would have been more aggressive and pushed fast up the left flank to try and finish the units in front of the bridge, rather than hanging back and trying to fight on all fronts. Maybe keep one unit and the Sherman-T at the back to stop being flanked and attacked from the rear.

I’ll enjoy going through this later. I hope someday that the autoplay can be made to work on tablets.

Loved the game and the scenarios. I love how K47 can add that weird without it completely taking over the main story.

Awesome battle report and I think I will pick up the German starter set. It was good to see some of the stuff I painted being played….

It wouldn’t have mattered but once a jeep is armed it loses the transport rule and is no longer destroyed by being closer to enemy units.

However your armored half tracks still are. Quite bizarre.

I like the scenario. Couldn’t you have added an other turn or would this give more benefit to the German forces. Or give the option of a free optional move for the Americans so you can bring forward some units.

Good game guys. I would have made repairing the bridge an active element; make a dice roll (or more) to get it done and allow the troops in.
Maybe you could then:
a) Blow up the bridge
b) Kill the engineering team

By the way… Feierfrei?? You know you just called for a party, right?
If you know Rammstein you should know how to pronounce that word.

You also forgot to shout “Gehiiiirrrnn!” every time the Totenkorps moved.

I could watch up until round four and them my iPhone couldn’t play the videos no more with the current set up.. Whatever that means.
Indunno who’s won but I’m sure @johnlyons has led the glorious FJR6 to their next victory 😎
Great stuf gentlemen, I could watch a battle rep every day!

Also, the German spider mech, Der Spinne, is pronounced Shpin-uh, with the i pronounced like the i in spin, as in spinning a web. This is your moment of pronunciation pedantry, since there always needs to be someone who says it. 🙂 Great play by play, hope to see more in the future!

Brilliant, loving these battles and the way they’re documented. More please, superb and really interesting.

Great video guys!

couple of mistakes that i noticed though:
1) Nothing is keeping the spider from using all its weapons in a turn, it does not suffer from the “single crew” special rule.
2) Infantry can fire their at-weapons and their small arms at different targets, so john could have killed the coyote and the heavy infantry – just the guys using the Panzerfäuste can’t shoot with anything else.
3) HE 3D6 also gives you +4 Pen, Justin’s poor infantry would have suffered even more.

Tactics wise: with this army, justin could have pushed way more aggressive with all his infantry through the center and have his telsa and coyote flank left and right, as the panzer x than would have to choose a side an become less of a threat, and the coyote can take out the spider with it’s hmg, or at least pin the open topped walker. On the other side, totenkorps is sadly rather useless without the specialist medic that uses them for spare parts – the same points would have bought john something way more useful.

the totally-not-zombies were not completely useless though.
The fact that the american infantry had to kill them was a distraction that they could have done without.

ratata

estimating 8-10 zombies based on the starterset containing 8, they cost around 60-70 points, a basic unit of 3 schreckwulfen (why on earth they did not just use “Werwölfe” is beyond me) costs only 60 and would have ripped&teared the g.i.s being fast and still causing horror. or he could have used nachtjäger for 68 points, those can fly and are strong so could have caused even more havok. sorry to say, but totenkorps only make sense if you use them to give your guys the 5+ medic save….

I think they are sticking to the two Konflikt ’47 Starter sets for most of these early battle reports.

Also, you could try editing the scenario so that after a certain turn, you make a roll to see if the Germans repaired the bridge. For an example, on Turn 4 you roll the die and on a 6 you repair the bridge and the scenario is over, and if it’s 5 or less the game continues. At the end of the next turn the game ends if you roll a 5 or 6. Next turn 4,5, or 6; and so on.

….Amazing BatRep guys…..I actually don’t Have the manual but in your Batrep on 2nd Edition Bolt Action there was a Flak Rule that was used against the “Plane” delivering the Artillery attack…You didn’t use it because it was a direct Artilery Attack or was just forgotten?….

khiasharisse

That rule is for an airstrike called in by an FAO, not a Artillery barrage called in by an FOO.

…..after reading your response i checked the 2nd edition Battlereport and indeed, they do say aerial observer, Definetely missed that when i watch it the first time and that got me confused….Thank you very Much 😀

The german spider-tank “Spinne” is pronounced SHPENN-UH not SPINE
