Very interesting game.
I find that my thinking for a one off game is very different than a campaign game.
This game shows that very well.
Loved the tension of both sides waiting for "the moment."

We really like the way a campaign adds that extra depth to a game so that every game has a consequence for future games and the campaign as a whole. I know some people consider a ‘short’ game like this as a waste of players’ time but we both embrace the wider narrative and have no issue if the outcome makes sense for the campaign.

Once again the Germans return to Holzthum Village to see if they can evict the Americans. So far the Germans are finding dislodging the Americans from any of the maps a very difficult proposition, but their recent successes clearing Maps 1 and 2 has buoyed their spirits. Are they about to unpick the American defence of skyline drive? The full AAR is here: https://thetacticalpainter.blogspot.com/2021/04/bloody-bucket-campaign-turn-7-scenario_18.html

Most interesting. The Americans seemed in acute danger at the beginning.

I agree with your final assessment ...more aggression with the panther for sure.

I like your buildings....and you have spurred me into thinking I need a large industrial / agricultural building!   Now to find or build one!

Inspiring. I only have an infantry platoon and a Waffen-SS platoon, but this has set me to searching for some 28mm buildings (I'll try PaperTerrain I think, given my budget at the moment)... and, I should scan the campaign doc to see about the assets one can add here and there...

For this path, I owe it to that cool pic of the Panther tank.

The Germans are behind schedule and the pressure is on to capture the remaining four battlefields before time runs out. We are now at Turn 8 and the Germans make a second attempt to clear the Americans from Map 4 The Outskirts of Consthum, will they be more successful this time?

I can’t recall ever firing so many anti-tank rounds at a single AFV. It made for an incredibly tense game and a lot of fun.

Excellent AAR’s and one of the reasons CoC is popular is the highs and lows one can experience during a game.
