Operation Overlord : 1500pts 50th TT vs SS PanzerKo

Got in a quick Overlord game today against Chris J. (Too many Chris's around here!)

We only had a little under two hours, so we went with 1500pts, and I played a 16-model FV list.

Chris took three platoons of boots, a platoon of shermans with one firefly, 6pdrs, M10s, a trio of universal carriers, and 120mm mortars. I took four panthers, four PZ4s, and a platoon of 5 mech panzergrenadiers. The mission was Fighting Withdrawal.

Panthers hiding behind buildings from the mortar observer

PZ4s in the wheat field while the boots double time towards the woods

Recce carriers providing some covering fire

M10s pop out from behind a house

And knock out one Panther with a flank shot.

The Shermans knock out two PZ4s

The Panthers fail to kill any M10s in return fire, and one pays the price by dying to a front shot!

While the Shermans kill the rest of the PZ4 platoon. This isn't going well.

The Panzergrenadiers attempted to assault, but whiffed and died in the counterattack. The Panthers carry on an assault them off of the objective, but die in the following turn to M10s sneaking around the rear.

Well, that was certainly a quick game. Little over an hour from making the army list to tear-down. Germans, while getting thoroughly trounced, did manage to take down two platoons on their way out, for a 4-3 British victory.
