A couple of Thursdays back saw me introduce Rick to 'Tanks'. I used my collection of Axis & Allies Miniatures, since I have moved on my 15mm collection , and only have the starter models in 15mm, and my 10mm buildings and trees to give the terrain a more 3D look.
To start, we did the ' Barkmann's Corner' scenario.
|The game set up.|
|Early moves. Barkmann's panther scores a hit on one of the Shermans.|
|The Panther takes a critical hit, in return reducing it's attack dice to 2.|
|The Panther is engaged by both Shermans.|
|The Panther and Sherman both hit each other. The Sherman takes a hit and is destroyed.|
|The Panther destroys the second Sherman.|
|The Germans and Russians move to contact.|
|View from the German lines.|
|Hits scored on the German forces.|
|Russian fire takes out the German PzIVs.|
