Operation Overlord June 3rd, 2017 12:00pm
« on: May 24, 2017, 10:41:23 AM »
Hi guys! I'm sure most of you have seen this event posted on the New England page but I figured I would reach out on your forum and notify some of you southern NE players.

We will be having a Flames of War D-Day themed event at Black Moon Games June 3rd 2017. Three 4'x6' tables will be set up with 2-3 scenarios running simultaneously. Each scenario will be depicting a phase of the Overlord invasion. Forces will be drawn from the V3 D-Day Books with the Version 4 update (Overlord & Atlantik Wall) once players sign up and give me an idea of thier forces they want to play I will send you a briefing detailing your points total and mission for the day. We hope to have 3 Allied and 3 Axis Commanders but we can always accommodate more or less depending on interest (we have 5 at the moment).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Scenario 1- Hit the Beach: Allied Forces will assault the fortified Normandy coast using a V4 updated version of Hit the Beach.

Axis Coastal Garrison Commander- Jeff Mayo (1200 Points Fortified)
Allied Assault Force Commander- Kris Lewis (1500 Points Infantry)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Scenario 2- Sieze and Hold: An Allied Airborne group will attempt a Coup De Main on a vital inland road intersection using an updated version of Sieze and Hold.

Axis Inland Garrison Commander- TBD (1700 Mech)
Allied Airborne Commander- Joey Laderoute (1500 Points Airborne/Glider)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Scenario 3- Hasty Attack: A German Kampfgruppe has been charged with blunting the massing Allied Armor inland, This scenario is to link up the beaches with the inland Airborne group by using the new version of the Hasty Attack mission. Both players roll a dice, the one with the higher roll takes iniative and becomes the attacker.
