Omaha Beach


I've been a bit out of the gaming scene due to having both my parents at hospital, but with them well and back home I'm posting the report of a Normandy refight we played with my dad.
The scenario was Bunker Assault from the warlord games webpage, pitting an elite wave of american ranger against a motley crew of nazi defenders
First into the beach is a veteran Sherman
Who immobilizes a shaken Panzer IV still reeling from the navy's barrage
The rangers begin to land coming under immediate fire
¡Achtung, die amerikaner sind hier!
But the enemy fire does little to the elite GIs, who storm the first bunker killing the enemy officer

More ranger begin the advance by the right while the sniper team takes position
The germans fail to activate
And are wiped out. First bunker taken, two to go
The sniper takes his first victim with a single shot: a german armed with an MG42
But then the air strike falls on american lines killing the spotter with friendly fire!
Full advance with time running out
While the panzer IV is blown up by an AP shell
Second bunker is taken without a fuss
And now only the last german bastion remains
But is swiftly taken by the elite rangers
With it's fall the beach is cleared of nazis and the push on Paris can begin!
