AAR 44, 21 Panzer vs FallSchirmJager +Rob's Canadians

(Above) Rob aka RKelly and Adam aka Clockwerks go toe to toe: Gepanzertes vs Canadians

Friday Night Fights, at Rob's place again on his gorgeous tables. Pripyat and I played on the Afghanistan/Italy table (video below) while I took some snapshots of their game. Rob has been toiling away at his Canadians, so I just had to post pics.

(above and below) Clockwerks' Germans, soon-to-be-Lehr we are told, including those frustrating Puma's, prepare to go on the offensive.

(above) The nicest Shermans I have ever seen. Click to zoom in on that Firefly, it has the long barrel camoflage, black on top to mask the 17pdr, and wavy white lines underneath, to reduce shadowing on the ground of it. Just look at all that stowage on there.
