We had our 5th game in our CoC Martlet campaign today at the Hobby Bunker in Malden, MA. My back was really against the wall now in this campaign, I had already lost 16 men and have had to use my reinforcements in the 2nd turn. Additionally the Germans were intact without loss, and their morale was high. I was getting killed on the Force Morale every game. It was time to really have a plan.
We were playing Table 2 a second time, the terrain is as laid out below and is scenario 3 in the main rulebook.
Force Morale 8
SL x 2
3 Rifle sections with a total of 30 men
1 Bren team with JL
1 Piat Team
2 2" Mortar Teams
1 HMG Team
Force Morale 11
SL x 2
3 Panzergrenadier squads with a total of 20 men
2 Panxer IV's
The game played out as follows.
|I started to lay down smoke and to assist with this I brought on my second Mortar team. Once enough smoke was laid I advanced one of the mortars to my right flank to cover the asphalt road.|
