Allied Forces CRUSHED by the Axis at TANKSGIVING 2013!!!

The best steel the Allied forces could muster was no match for the King Tiger horde that rolled onto the battlefield, but that didn't mean the Allies wouldn't try their best!

This is the field looking SSW to the NNE. The Allied forces would take defensive positions west of the main road.


Len's Panther and JagdPanther companies

The Marder II's look so cute don't they?

Here's a special look at Len's winter Panthers… I love these things!!

7. Kompanie, 1. Zug hier und bereit!!

Ken's Panther company

OH yeah!! With a double helping of Panzerwerfers and crews!! 

Anna's KingTiger Battalion

We all thought the mascot was awesome… but didn't figure it to be the good luck charm it was!

Sadly, the late Axis entry didn't have his photos included, but Joe (one of the proprietors of our host Strategy and Games, Moscow, Idaho) brought his KingTiger company along with his panzerwerfers and FLAK 38 guns to the show.  In all, including air, the Axis began the match in very strong terms.


The Komissar's Tankovy Brigade

"they look like good, strong, hands…"

The Front Coordinator's Tank Battalion

"It's not easy, being green…"

The Newbie's Tank Company

Can you spell cannon-fodder?

Now that the abusers and victims have been introduced, let's take a gander at the initial deployments.

Looking at the field from the NNW to the SSE...

From the beginning, it doesn't look good for the Allies. Can they pull out a victory? Perhaps a close defeat with honor?  Find out in part two, after the Thanksgiving holiday.
