Achtung! Grenadiers!

At long last, I was able to get together with my friend, HeavyJosh, for a little WW2 Skirmish action, using 1/72 scale figs and the rules from The Face Of Battle. it has been at least 3 years since I played this game back with my old historicals gang, and I've missed it.

I was never responsible for the rules before (Wayne always GMed our battles), and I have a new respect for being on top of all the mods and details.

That said, a fun time was had by me. The MG34/42 is a real chainsaw--I aced 3 of Josh's guys in the first turn with a well placed burst. He later reciprocated, laying out both my LMG teams with his .30 cal from the second story of an abandoned (presumably recently!) country house.

This game was really just an opportunity to refamiliarize myself with the game, and point out the holes in my terrain collection. I'll get to work filling them this week....
