Battle of Foy

On Saturday, January 19th, my gaming group played a World War II scenario using the Battlefront rules.

A battalion of 101st Airborne Paratroopers, worn down by the siege of Bastogne, attempted to take the German-held villiage of Foy, Belgium. The Germans had a severely reduced company defending the town, but it was a strong defensive position.

In real life, the airborne pushed the Germans out of the town, but they had to commit a second battalion to do so. The 506th PIR suffered heavy casualties.

In our game, the airborne pushed the Germans out of the town, but they had to have help from a company of Stuarts. E and H companies were almost totally destroyed, and I company was torn up pretty badly. It was a very close game.

Figures are a mixture of Battlefront (Flames of War), Command Decision, Peter Pig, and Quality Castings. Buildings are all from JR Miniatures.

  1. Great report, Scott - could use some captions on the pics but not entirely necessary.

    I've bookmarked your blog - keep it coming!


  2. Thanks, Greg! I'm still learning this blog business. I think on the more recent post I finally figured out how to add captions to the photos.
