I hosted a Mein Panzer game at Imperial Outpost Games in Glendale, AZ on Saturday, April 27th.

The game was set in North Africa in 1942 with the Briish up against the German Afrika Korps. This game was a warm-up for the same game I will be running at Sand Wars in Mesa, AZ on May 18th. For the game I used 1/285th scale GHQ micro armor and my desert Terrain Maker. The buildings are by Leva, Timecast, Mainly Military, and Hovels.

We had 3 players plus me as the 4th. I designed this scenario as a simple introductory game to get new players on board with the rules quickly and to (hopefully) have a fun time while learning.

One of the players had not played before while another had only played once and that had been back in October. Richard F and Matt C took the British forces while John C and I took the Germans.

The objectives were pretty simple overall – points awarded for geographical objectives including 4 hilltops and the crossroads in the village plus points for knocking out or brewing up enemy tanks.

The British forces consisted of 2 reduced squadrons of Crusader IIs while the Germans had 2 reduced Panzer III companies but the Panzer II platoons were missing.

We played through 5 turns with the Germans getting slightly better of the tank to tank to engagement but the British getting more points for controlling the crossroads.

We decided to call it after 5 turns and awarded a marginal victory to the British. The 2 newer players enjoyed the game and indicated they would like to play again. It was a good day for everybody!

Here are a few pictures of the game showing the layout and some of the action.

Good stuff!

Oh, but to be close enough to run with the push-that-pewter gang.

Thanks very much, Mark!

Redleg and Hoth are coming out from California to play the game at Sand Wars. They are both signed up for my game. I Would love to have the great Mark 1 there to play as well.
