[BKCII] If You Go Down In The Woods Today

Based on the scenario in the downloads section of the BKC website but tweeked for BKC 2, more points and a bigger table. A small US force of paras is cut off in a town in the Ardennes under attack from a German force, both sides are waiting for reinforcements...

Op. fire menaces the German advance

The crafty flanking move by the Hertzers is not unnoticed.

Heavy fire pushs back the Germans

Artillery pounds the paras in town

Taking the high ground

Use the cover of the church the Germans continue their advance into town
The Hertzers move to take advantage of the line of sight provided by the road.

American reinforcements arrive to the west.

More reinforcements

The German heavy boys arrive
Close combat!!

Flanking around the edge of town the Shermans prepare to engage the heavy German tanks.

But first they give the Hertzers a pounding.
Link up!

Ze German armour starts its deadly work but the artillery finishes their work!

Stuck and refusing to move behind the woods.


The fight at the edge of town is turning into a bloody stalemate.

Shermans burning on the edge of town.

But the Gods of war seem to be favouring the Yanks

The initiative phase is hectic as both sides armour engages

As turn 9 comes to an end the Germans fail a leadership test at -2 and are forced to retire.

[BKCII] German Breakthrough Attack

Jan 1945 - 3000pts of Germans trying to Breakthrough 1500pts of Russians.

Here comes trouble

For what we are about to receive...

Collective farming

The heavy boys

Somewhat over-powered the Soviet reece unit meets its end

Pincer movement from the Germans allowing the Hetzers to open up on the Soviet defenders

Literally the only thing that happened this turn was the advance of these three T-34s

The ATG is taken out

Aerial view

The T-34s find their range

and start using it most effectively

With less trouble to the font the conscripts and pioneers headed back

Preparing to receive an inevitable flank attack

Marders 0 vs. 1 Mortars

With some help from a T-34

The squadron of T-34s are dominating the centre ground

Infantry are moving from one flank to another as the Soviets prepare defence line number two

Before rocket artillery

After rocket artillery

The heavy boys make their presence felt

The flank force arrives in the middle of a mine field on the edge of town!

Conscripts repel an assault by the SS!

The Germans are forced to take a break test, which they fail as is tradition!
