Turn 7 – THE CHILDREN ARE BURNING!

Filed under: — Top Hat @ 2:59 am

Dude, what are you feeding those Germans on the “north” side of the road? For the last couple of turns, they’ve been running, screaming, throwing ‘nades, killing people… I can’t get my infantry to back off properly. Those sons of bitches have wiped out one of my squads (as they were running for their lives), and then as they came upon my machinegun crew, they started putting the pressure on them as well. I’m convinced those German infantry have been running for the last 300 metres, thus they are all cloned Dolph Lundgrens. (I know he’s not German, shut up.)

Meanwhile, a bit further north, a couple of monsters (STUGs?) and a Panzer III come rolling out of nowhere. They were starting to roll right by my squad under the trees, but then my boys were spotted by some German peeping Tom across the field. The turn movie ended, and now I have no idea what’s going to happen. They are mere metres away from the STUGs…

And to the “south” of the road my retreating infantry are screaming for their lives. I listened closely when the camera was zoomed in while playing the turn movie, and I heard one of the grunts scream “Tell Maria I love her!” I sent some smoke shells behind their position in an attempt to mask their retreat, but that was pretty ineffective. This was partly because the mortar team was a bit off the mark, and partly because the smoke wasn’t thick enough. If the retreating infantry had all lit up cigars, they probably would’ve done a better job.

See you in hell!
