Operation Overlord, PARA phase, Scenario 02 - St.Mere Eglise - Return to Tournament Page

Axis 1 vs. Allies 2
Fixpix - Axis: 2 medals
Captain Ruiz - Allies: 4 medals

Total casualties:
Axis - 14 inf figs, 3 tank figs
Allies - 8 infantry figs

Brief report:
The battle started bad for german troops. 3 out of 4 paratroops landed safely and began cleaning the battlefield. Confused, the germans lost 3 turns understansing what's happening, basically not scoring a single hit despite many atempts (read bad, BAD rolls =)) while the allied troops were making their way to victory. The german tried to deploy the armor unit but the tanks were destroyed before having the chance to inflict a single casualty (more bad rolls). By the time the allied commander had 3 medals, the german commander had 1, and the center unit was heavily crippled, down to 1 fig, and surrounded by 3 full paratrooper squads. A couple of unlucky shots from the paratroopers encircling the town allowed this unit to flee, buying enough time so that the germans scored another medal. Unfortunatelly that unit was caught and shot down in the forests to the northeast of Saint Mere Eglise, ensuring victory for the Allied.
