The Germans were winning the war of attrition due to their extra LMGs, but the British initiated charges, relying on close combat to balance out their lack of firepower. It was the only way they could hope to win, as 6 MG42s dish out a lot more firepower than 3 Brens, 48 dice vs 18 in fact. However the Cromwell was doing well, laying in support fire and destroying both Panzerschreck teams as it advanced on the left flank.
After the Cromwell laid in HE fire and cleared an LMG team, the British rushed into the now undefended ground floor. Hand grenades flew back and forward, before the remaining British ran upstairs and wiped out the German LMG team. Casualties were high though and the British squad ended up being broken as well due to losses and shock. Mutual destruction.
The other British squads also charged in, managing to break another German squad before being broken by fire from the remaining German squad. In the end the Germans fell back as leader casualties and 2 wiped out squads reduced their force morale from 9 to 3 . The British were only just ok, with their force morale at 5 from a start of 10. All in all it went pretty well and I think they all enjoyed it.
I am now starting on some more Zombicide figures, as we have cracked open the original game to divvy up the Zombies. I currently have 8 zombies, 5 survivors and 5 zombivores on the go. Will I get them all done by Monday......I very much doubt it. I am looking forward to painting
Ah well, off now to slap some paint onto some plastic. Have fun folks and keep rolling those dice.
