AP137 Fear Naught Turn 3 of 6.5

German Turn

  • Panther G slid over into the view of my Churchill (where the 8-0 and “Motion” counter is) and stopped, spending only 2 MP in my LOS.
  • Panther G TK23 vs Churchill’s front AF14
  • Churchill crew woke up! Popped Smoke Mortar – got it. Rolled for Motion .. got that too!! Spun the tank around, ready to leave in my turn coming up.

My Turn

  • Moved a squad into the house next to the Panther, survived the vehicle MG shots.
  • Ran the 457 to the front of the Panther, the Panther shot and malf’d its MA!!
  • The panicking Churchill saw what happened, turned back around, went into bypass next to the Panther G. Rolled for ESB to stop (‘cause bogging will stop me anyway).
  • The other Churchill in Q1 went into position up on Level 0.

My Advancing Fire

  • Churchill in bypass shot and HIT! TK14 vs AF6. DUD!!!
  • Churchill on Level 0 shot, NO HIT!

Advance & CC Phase

  • Both squads passed PAATC.
  • First one went in with a Streetfight bonus, NO KILL!!
  • POW!! The German snooglewoofer got stuck!! We live!
  • Second squad attacked, NO KILL!!

FOUR ATTEMPTS AND NO KILL!!

German Turn

The dang Panther turned around.

  • Churchill in bypass went for DI shot, need a 7, NO HIT!
  • Churchill up top went for a DI shot, NO HIT!
  • Piat went for a DI shot, NO HIT!

Meanwhile 2 German snakes + a 4 on a DC toss vaporized 3 British squads and a 9-1 …

… and it’s only the fourth day of the year ..

40 Fort McGregor

I am finally doing DTO!!  Unfortunately for me, my first DTO scenario is also a Night scenario, something that I am not very well versed with.  Then again hey : I have a GREAT opponent, so the best time is definitely now.

This scenario is an ASL classic.  The Germans win by scoring 20 CVPs more than the Brits and by controlling the both Hillock summit.  There’s a bombardment before the German turn but it really didn’t do much!

NVR’s 3, the Germans crept in…

My opponent conceded. Onto the next one!

Wanna ditch Skype?

If you play VASL with Skype and has been looking for a voice platform to replace Skype. You might want to check this out.

My opponent Will Fleming set up a server on Discord for voice comms during VASL games and text chat when hanging out.

You can install the app if you want to but you and/or opponent can run this via your browsers with no installs.

Heres the link if you want to try it out https://discord.gg/XxpxAvx

Before you ask, I don’t know what the advantages are beyond what I see on their webpage and beyond feedback from my friends. If you are young and want to try new things with us, here it is.

One of my friends look at it as “VASL lobby on steroids”.
