This is an IABSM game played at Gigabites Cafe in Marietta, GA in June, 2013. The main premise for the game is taken from a scenario from the Blood and Honor series of games by Richard de Ferrars and Paddy Green. The action takes place on June 7th. 1944 - D+1. Elements of the 61st Reconnaissance Regiment (working for the 8th Armoured Brigade) on Gold Beach, are looking for a way forward along the River Seulles valley. The Germans meanwhile are trying to re-establish a front. The 12th SS sent its Aufklarungsabteilung out to stop any Allied drives through the gap in this sector and find out what terrain the Brits had already taken.
Brian was in charge of the British recce force. He had two troops to start, each with two Humber LRCs, two Humber MkIVs, and a carrier section. And one Squadron Big Man in another Humber LRC. At this point I have to point out that I have no 6mm Humber LRC models: I can't seem to find a manufacturer for this vehicle. Too bad the Germans didn't use them, because then there would be plenty on the market.
Tim got the SS Aufkl Abt12 units. He had part of the Panzerspah Kompanie: one SdKfz 232, three SdKfz 222s, and three SdKfz 234/1s. This along with the halftrack unit of four SdKfz 250/9s and a command version of the 250. And I had the remnants of 5 Kompanie, II Battalion, Fusilier Regiment 352: four squads of infantry, one MMG and one PaK 38.
