A month or so ago me and Steve had a Great War game with me defending a entrenched hill while Steve attack with his French force, the game ended with a resounding victory for the French. We decided after that we would re-fight the game with me now being the attack last night saw us play said game. We were using 1917 lists from The Great War Over the Top supplement me taking 1,800pts while Steve would have 900pts.
I had sent my Pioneer’s (with lots of flamethrowers :o) ) up the centre towards the hill behind the barrage while my two lots of Stormtroopers would hopefully deal with the ruined village and then swing around the flank and attack the hill. Now I didn’t take any pictures for a few turn’s as I completely forgot but the advance went quite well for the Germans I only lost a couple of Stormtrooper squads to the incoming fire and had silenced one of the French HMG’s plus there field gun.
Steve was down to his last few troops now but still had a chance to at least draw the game as I only had a couple of scoring units left, he managed to take one down but just couldn’t get the other before the last of the French defenders fail died.
So a win for the German attackers but in the end a really close game if Steve could have just killed a couple more of my troop’s he would have snatched a draw.
