Glasgow Warhog at Carronade 2016
Omaha Beach at Win 72
(West Side – section Dog Green to Charlie) DRAW 1 Verville-Sur -Mer
The US 29th are up against the German 352nd infantry...
There are a few (approx 350ish) American figures on this board.
Scratch built LCT 5 and an Academy LCT kit (with Priest and AA half track).
DD Sherman's take a few hits - and light up!
American keep on movin' up to the wire...
A Higgins boat sinks and remaining 29th wade ashore under fire.
5th Rangers scale the bluff. With Germans firing from the trench above...
Its a 7ft
x7ft board to give you the scale.
The engineers team try to blow the wire with bangalores....see lines across the barb wire...
So for detail freaks ...the Higgins are mostly scratch buit with the snorkel sherman carrying the same numbers as the one on the beach. Likewise the Higgins and large lcm carry the numbers of the actual vessels at Omaha.
Then the Americans charge forward. German mortars and MG 42's are taking a toll.
Bluffs and bunkers (WN 72) are scratched from blue foam.
Casualties are high and the beach is packed...with wounded, kit, guns and debris.
Medics take away the injured.
Hemmbalk, Belgian Gates (Element C), Czech Hedgehogs. topped with teller mines litter the beach.
Ohh and 40ft of barbed wire.
