A Pummelling At Pendeheim

 Gaming returned to OHQ today with a 1945 game using Battlegroup rules, a Volksgrenadier platoon with armoured support was holding the outskirts of Pendeheim hoping to stem the allied advance into the Reich.

Alas it was not to be the inexperience of the young grenadiers showed and despite the reinforced and hard cover received a severe drubbing by Monty's boys.

Below are some still photos taken from the propaganda newsreel before the action to show the folks back home that Germany was not yet out.  





 
Gaming returns to GHQ next week for an Italian Wars game.

  2. Nicely done with the soft focus, low lit edging. That’s a great base in the mortar pit.

    1. Thank you Norm, I didn't take any in game shots, not a great deal of movement and would the pictures be any different to the last report other than the background.

    1. Thank you Steve. Also looking forward to Condottiere Baldini taking to field again, it may encourage me to dig another unit out if the lead lump too.

  5. A splendid set of pictures! Indeed, a splendid spectacle of a game to play in. Little movement but much fighting for the British to dislodge the Krauts!

    1. Glad you like the shots before you decimated them🙂
      Let's hope they do better when you command them in a counter attack in a couple of weeks.
