As it was only our second game of BA we've not really got to grips with it yet so we thought we'd throw some armour in there to see how it works.
The game was set up with the British (Dave in the red top) deploying first. This would give the game a more ambushy feel. The Germans (me, not in the shot) also had anti-tank guns set hidden using dice (some of them dummy) to mark possible positions. We decided to deploy all the German inf instead of using dummy dice or noting positions maps to save some time and so it didn't get too complicated and the game last hours.
The British inf came on strong and suffered badly from advancing in open but soon learned to start hugging the bocage. The armour came on more tentatively as you would expect with hidden AT all over the place.
Things were looking good for the Germans until some appalling Anti-tank dice rolling at sitting duck targets left them exposed and vulnerable to the armour. Things got worse as the armour rolled up the fields seemingly invulnerable to anything that was thrown at them pounding the German infantry and Pak 40's to bits.
To compound matters our random reinforcement rule allowed 3 units of Red Devils (Martin) to attack from the German rear. It was all pretty much over for the Germans with only a single immobilised Sherman to sweeten a resounding defeat.
Good game all in all although we'll be adding some house rules to BA for things which didn't quite sit right for us.
Enjoy the pics and have a good xmas.
