Flames of Version 4   Leave a comment

Version 4 is here.  I was able to attend the Beasts of War Boot camp for FOW Version 4 and it was an incredible experience.  I would go back for any other game I am interested, just to hang out and have a good time.  I met a lot of great people that I would love to game with anytime.

WWPD Bastogne Campaign: Cafe Schinker   Leave a comment



Borrowed from the scenario for Cafe Schinker:

Situation: Situation: The 39th Fusilier Regiment is the southern prong of the 26th Volksgrenadier Division’s push towards Bastogne. Fusiliers have crossed the Our River in the early morning hours of December 16th, 1944. Their immediate objective is the town of Café Schinker. The town is defended by “L” Company of the 110th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division. The US must try to hold on tow the town, while the German Grenadiers must quickly break this position to clear the way for the Panzers pf the Panzer Lehr Division when they start crossing assault bridges being erected across the Our River.

The DAK panzers have been one of those long term projects we all have.  I bought most of the models at least 6 years ago minus the PSC half tracks and Panzer IIIs.

The 36th Infantry at Paestum, Italy.   3 comments

Never heard of Paestum, Italy?  Neither had I until I put together this game.  Paestum is the Italian seaside town where the 36th Infantry landed during Operation Avalanche in September 1943.  Most people think of Salerno, but that is where the British Commandos and British X Corps landed.  Kesselring had anticipated the Allies landing near Salerno and had the 16th Panzer Division in the area to reduce any foot hold.  At Paestum, the US 36th Infantry went up against Kampfgruppe Doering which consisted of the 2nd Panzer Regiment and 79th Panzergrenadier Regiment.
