Yeah .. if Knudsen is referring to the OB used by different publishers in the earlier part of the "analysis" .. then yes, you are right.Ah, but no Lone Canuk scenarios added I believe nor VFTT ones. These would seriously alter the input somewhat!:nod:
I have always put my purchased scenarios into binders, but before doing that, I read them and pick one to four of them for my "to play" binder. That way, I know I will never buy something and not play it.I finally pulled all the scenario cards out of core module boxes and Action Packs and got them into binders. With three full binders, it will certainly make it easier to peruse scenarios in order to pick something to play. I guess that at some point I need to scan scenarios from Journals and Annuals to get them into the binders, as well.
I played this scenario as the Germans some months ago, and followed a similar train of thought. If you can eliminate the farm's defenders before the relief force arrives, you're in an excellent position.I pulled out counters and puzzled over the German set-up for J183 "A Real Barn Burner," getting ready for an upcoming game with a friend. So many options for the Germans that it's a bit daunting... I'm thinking about the MMG in a foxhole in 43H8 - this will give a nice long firelane along the road and the MG can also support an assault against the fanatic stronghold. I haven't figured out the best use of the PaK yet, and I am still weighing how to balance the Germans between attacking the stronghold and preventing the reinforcements from arriving. I feel like I will probably leave a fairly small delaying force in the island of woods and then push hard to capture the Bois-Du-Seuil Farm (relying a bit on what I think is a slightly cautious tendency of my opponent). Hoping that I can make a final defensive stand in the farm to hold off the relief force. (Though those fanatics in the farm are not to be taken lightly - I worry that I'll bleed myself white trying to take the farm and then not have enough strength to hold off the final push of the relief force.) So many things to consider... I'm really looking forward to giving this unusual scenario a play!
Expert opinion here at GS seems to be ignore the farm and keep any of the reinforcing units out... This has me reconsidering what sort of defense I can construct with an eye to keeping out the reinforcements. It's just these sort of dilemmas are what make ASL such a wonderful game for me.I played this scenario as the Germans some months ago, and followed a similar train of thought.
