German Grenadiers vs US Light tanks in Dust Up

US tanks and Observer ready to take the fight to Jerry!

Lords of War in Oakville held their last MW 109 pts FoW tournament the other weekend. I decided to play my Ghost Panzer Grenadiers and see how they continue to stack up. My first game was against Dennis and his Americans from Fighting First.

Set Up
Objectives are in front of the 10.5cm guns and in the woods and just above the house/church and in the woods at the top of the picture

US Armoured Recce teams ready to advance

Marders laying in wait

8-Rads discover the location of the Brit 6-pdrs

Turn 1-2
Marders blitz out and open fire on the Lees knocking out 3 tanks

HMGs open fire and start knocking out Recce Jeeps

Turn 3
Stuarts arrive from reserve and are greeted by PaK 40 fire knocking out one tank and bailing another

        Marders and HMGs continue to take out the Recce platoons

Turn 4-5
A failed assault followed by shooting allow another 2 Stuarts get knocked out

Genadiers seize an object and spread out so the Armoured mortars can't hit them all with a barrage

M10s arrive from reserve knocking out a Marder as the Tiger and KV advance destroying the M10s

Turn 6
Grenadiers move to support the PaK 40s who are taken out by an assault they couldn't run away from despite not taking a hit!

Grenadiers holding the objective lose a stand to fire as the Armoured Mortars move to engage with .50 cals

Turn 7
Armoured Mortars assault the Grenadiers to attempt to prevent a German win

The final Lee attempts to get close to the objectives the 10.5cm guns are guarding, only to be destroyed

In the end the Germans were able to hold onto the victory taking the game 7-4.
