He has some very nicely painted US Para's, done with Armypainter I think, though I can't be sure. His basing is comprehensive and very attractive. He'd also set up a pleasing table of extensive but plausible terrain for our game. Only the Para's were being air-dropped into this battlefield, which looked like humans had created it rather than some randomised element of chaos (like 9 out of 10 Warhammer 40k boards, say).
As ever with BE the literal losses were heavy on both sides, if you interpret any casualty as potentially a wound or retreat of models as well as KIA's it seems less severe.
Immediately the Panther destroyed the US M10 tank destroyer, and the German armour then went about the business of stalking the American's Sherman. However my Hetzer was fully equipped with a rack of Polish made ammunition (three 1's to hit in a row) and so never did more than contain the enemy. The Pak 40 was reduced to a role of direct fire anti-infantry work.
My orders were to overrun the enemy and make it into Andy's defense perimeter; this we did quite effectively. Andy for his part was somewhat outgunned, but this was his first experience using armour in the game.
I look forward to a rematch.
