Disposable Heroes WW2 with the Catawba Gamers
Hi Kids, This is the other game the Catawba Gamers played on PTO Wednesday, when sneaky employees mysteriously disappeared from work and reappeared minutes later at a gaming store, Parker, Banner Kent & Wayne in Cornelius, NC. When its tactical level World War Two, its got to be Disposable Heroes. Any other ruleset is a gesture. We didn't have a huge block of time, so we played a 600 pt defender (German Grenadiers) vs. 800 pts of attackers (US Army).
The other survivors are the two man sniper team, who decided to escape off the edge of the world at the last minute. Well, if you've read this far perhaps you're wondering who made all this stuff. The tanks and flak gun are Westwind, most of the figs are 25mm Westwind and Battlefront (no, the OTHER Battlefront from 19th Century Miniatures), the assorted crops are from Flag Dude, the roads are from that outfit in Roanoke VA, Battlefield Terrain Concepts I think. The buildings were purchased second hand from a crackhead in Statesville. Or so it seemed at the time. Most of the miniature troops were painted by Dutch Pond painting service.
