Just out of interest for the Dog Co. guys, the lighter colour of camo on the face, wouldn't have anything to do with the photo of the 3 chaps on the front of the new SOF magazine would it?

Glad you enjoyed that - scenario dictated that I progressively pulled back, otherwise you wouldn't have played all of Taffy's cracking site. Depends on how you see 'winning' a game I suppose - for me its following orders and giving the players the opportunity to allow players to give a good account of themselves. German players did, despite overwhelming odds (now I find out Yanks were using radios :roll: ) and can hold their heads up high having made the best of the resources available to them.

Have to echo Chommers remarks, the scenario was a no win situation for the Germans from the off, they followed orders to the letter and fought a hell of a battle pulling back all the time as told. Holding some positions for a lot longer than planned :good:
Fire power was an issue on Saturday the Kar98s were at a bit of a disadvantage against all the Thompsons :) having the range but not the speed to reload, American troops did faulter quite a few times but once on song they were great.
The winners were all of you guys that played :)
I was glad to be part of the weekend and watched all the smiling faces all weekend.
Bring on the next one but 2 seperate bases to guard for the two days :) patrols and objectives being the key, then both teams can Win or Lose :)

Nothing to do with SOF at all webby. Dog Company also goes under the name of the "Filthy 13" for various reasons.

The Filthy13 grew notorious, even within the ranks of the elite 101st. Never ones to salute an officer, or take a bath, this squad became singular within the Screaming Eagles for its hard drinking, and savage fighting skill and that was only in training. Just prior to the invasion of Normandy, a "Stars and Stripes" photographer caught U.S. paratroopers with heads shaved into Mohawks, applying war paint to their faces.

This is our way of remembering them.
