We set up for a straight forward defence scenario of ten turns using rapid fire rules, we rolled for elements by company (4,5,6 they arrived), the Germans manged to get a full recon batn on, two full infantry battalions, two company's of armour and a HQ element, no heavy armour company, no Stugs and no artillery (the horse s were tired!!!). The Belgians managed to get a full Ardennes rifle batn on, with support elemets and a company of FT17s. The British managed to get two full battns of Infantry, support elements a artillery battery , divisonal AT, and one vickers tank...........and the two armoured batns failed to arrived (I blame the French road signs......). The aircraft sorties were then sorted, the Germans rolled 8 on a D10 and the Belgians rolled 6........we then rolled for arrival in each turn, The Germans elected to take 4 Stuka passes and 4 fighter passes, the Belgians used a fighter only, the Roll offs resulted in only 5 german sorties (2 stuka and 3 fighter) and the Belgians 2 sorties.......using a French plane!!!
The Germans move the first recon elements onto the table and launch Stuka airstrike on the Belgian armour
it fails its morale roll and flees off the table!!!!!
The Germans move into the Village
The German armoured cars arrive along with recon support elements and the first British arty round land!!! Belgian civilians are blocking the road forcing the Germans to go x country
Turn 3 more German elements arrive incl armour and infantry, more arty bombardment
Turn 4 More Germans arrive, they are waiting for a build up before advancing.......the sneaky devils
Turn 5 The German recon advances, probing and finds the enemy right flank!!!

Turn 6 the Germans start the assault on the left also

Turn 8 The German armour find the left defences the hard way when three AT guns open up

the Germans continue the advance, clearing the trenches of BEF
Turn 9 The Germans continue the assault, the Stuka does damage to the AT guns and the A/C take out the British 18pdr bty.
