No Retreat – Rachamps, Belgium   Leave a comment

Continuing with the Bastogne Campaign on the 4th Turn my club fought three missions; Rchamps, Bizroy, and Noville over the weekend.  This battle matched my US Tank Company against Veit’s (Sounds like Fight in English) Panzer Grenadiers from the 2nd Panzer Division.

Bastogne Roadblock (How would you do it?)   1 comment

Its had been a few months since I have had a game of Flames of War.  I set up a board to represent the road network that German forces would have taken during the Battle of the Bulge.  This battle would have a Combat Engineer Company defend against a Kampfgroup Peiper Panzer Company.  My son and I discussed for awhile how we would have the Germans advance in this battle.  It looked like a challenge given the very difficult going terrain and mud pretty much every where else except the roads.  I am going to test a new idea with this post.  I would like to know what would you do in this battle?  The objective is the bridge on the far left of the map. Due to the board being 9ft by 6ft I would say the Germans need about 8 to 9 turns to get there.  6 turns would be really pushing it.  What do you think?  The mission would be No Retreat.  I tend to be historical so the TD platoon, artillery, and recon are in reserve.
