FOW WWII Early War game

It has been some time since I last posted. My new venture has been keeping me very busy. I did manage to get a few hours this last Sunday to get a game in. I am a fan of the early war period of World War Two and with the new release of Blitzkrieg from Battlefront I have been working on a French force to go against my Germans that I did some time ago. We only got in a half a dozen turns before I had to give up the table to a customer so they could get a game in. We called it a German minor victory because they had destroyed one platoon with none of theirs destroyed. The Stukas showed up almost every turn but did not always hit. My French unit is a DLM so can not take AA. Need to look at the other lists!

It was a fun game and who knows what could have happend.

Impressive terrain. That's something I need to aim for.

Thanks! It is pretty easy actually. The roads and woods bases are felt. For the woods I just add some flock to the felt and the roads have lines drawn by a marker. The hills are foam and the hedges are big scrubby pads cut down, painted and flocked on big popsicle sticks. The trees are all pre-done Noch and Woodland Sceneics. The buildings are of unknown make but I have a number of MBA and others. I try to make it as modular as possible but still look nice. I am considering some of the JR Minis fields.
