Thanks to the great work did by Alberto (one of my club mates) that prepared a stunning table …
… last Saturday Alberto and Ezio played a test match using Cross Fire. Cross Fire is a Ww2 set of rules at company level, it is focuses in particular on infantry fights. Scenario they chose is included into the rule book (“bridgehead”) and they decided for a Normandy background.
Germans are in defense while Us troops have to advance and to take the control of (at least) four houses by enemy' reinforcements arrival.
All miniatures are painted by Alberto and are in 1/72 scale … but now some imagines of the battle
To start, a quick look to the two HQ’s commanders
Before US attack, Germans troops hide themselves into the village
An American armored column starts his approach to the village but the lane is blocked
From the church bell tower, a German HMG forces the Yankees to keep their heads down
Us troops continues their approach to the village but …
… even if German reinforcements arrived under an heavy enemy fire … the Americans doesn’t reach their goals …
… and Germans keep the control of the village
