This was the 2nd part of the Rots June 11, 44 game. This was the actual assault into Rots by A and B Troops of the 46 RMC along with 2 and 3 Troop and the HQ tanks of the Fort Garry Horse. The town was defended by elements of 4 Kompanie, 12 SS PzGrd Rgt and the grenadiers of 1st Kompanie PzGrd Rgt 26 of the 12th SS Div.
The attack would come from the NW and west side of the table (the near side) The village of LeHamel and the River Mue are off table to the west. The German player was told that the Brits/Cdn are to the north and Nw
The Commandos could arrive from the roads on the west edge and we went with their historical route of the Chemin de la Cavee,
Commandos had 2 troops and the support of 2 troops of M4s/Fireflies and 2 HQ troop M4s. The Germans had a weak company and 4 Panthers and 1 PaK 40.

Nice! Great minis and terrain – and as someone born in St. Boniface, good to see the Fort Garry Horse in action

Blimey Mark, could that get any better? 😎

Terrain looks perfect and figures as well.
Are those Adler Brit inf and are they Royal Marines?

Just amazing 👍

Beautiful terrain! How big was the table?

Microbiggie16 Sep 2022 5:36 p.m. PST

The table is a standard 4X6 footer. Most of the RMC minis are Adler with a few paras.

That is another great looking game, Mark!

Fantastic table Mark! What colors do you use for roads? Working on some 6mm terrain now

Microbiggie17 Sep 2022 6:38 p.m. PST

I use chalk pastels on an old dyed bedsheet. For these roads I started with a dark brown and worked through increasingly lighter colors until I finished them off with a very pale buff.

An incredible table. Well done!
