Carentan Playtest

Dave and Elliot were over yesterday to playtest the Carentan MayDay convention scenario. They were real sports suffering through a raw, unbalanced scenario. However, with their feedback, I think the game will be pretty tight come MayDay.

A platoon of paratroopers advance through a hedgerow and begin their assault on Carentan from the south.

The headquarters section leads a right hook around the German main line of resistance.

The Fallschirmjagers get an MG into a 3rd floor position and start hosing down the advancing Americans.

The German HQ section winds up being pinned down by American sniper fire and advancing riflemen for most of the game.

The German reinforcements prove to be too much...stalling the American advance from well defended rubble and building positions.

Thanks to the guys for being good sports and helping critique the scenario set up. Now it's time to move onto my other MayDay American daylight bombing raid over Berlin using the Warbirds in Miniature air combat ruleset.

'Til next time.
