Frag Order

Updated 8/05/09

1.  First, find your opponent in the battle matchups and eligible player listings below.  You can also check the Turn 4 map (link within this thread)
2.  Contact your opponent and schedule a time and place to conduct the battle.  Preferred method is to use the Doodle.com website.
3.  Determine if any additional Firestorm troops have been allocated for use in your battle.  You may use proxies if you do not own the units.  Please make your opponent aware of the Firestorm units and/or proxies, prior to placing any objectives or platoons on the board.
4.  Determine your mission, based on the rules modifications posted in this earlier thread. I highly recommend everyone print the rules mods to have with them when you play your games.  
5.  If you are Out of Supply, ensure you make the Out of Supply role to determine the effects on your game.
6.  The following campaign special rules are in effect for Turn 4 of this campaign.

Germans
Round 4
C-and-C Suicide - With the Suicide of the Armee Group Commander Von Kluge, all commanders lose their will to fight on.  Company and Higher command
teams may not roll company morale tests during this game.  In addition, platoons must make a single re-roll for successful tests to counterassault.

Weather
Round 4
Heavy Rain - Due to heavy rains, there is a limited view on the battlefield during this game.  At the beginning of each turn, starting on turn 2, roll a die.  If the die roll is 5+, the rain has stopped.  Otherwise, heavy rains limit visibility on the game board to 24".  In addition, all enemy teams in the open are considered concealed by the rain for shooting purposes.  If the enemy teams are already concealed, using normal rules for concealment, these effects do not stack.  Heavy rain never gives gone-to-ground status to concealed tank, large guns, heavy and immobile gun teams, or transport teams if they did not move or shoot and are in the open.

7.  Conduct your battle.  This turn starts on July 13, 2009 and will end two weeks later on Sunday, July 31, 2009.  Hopefully, this will give everyone plenty of time to play their last game in this campaign.  
8.  Report the results of your battle, via this thread.  One post per battle # should be sufficient.  Report the following information.
  • Battle #
  • Your name
  • Your division
  • Your sector number on the map
  • Your opponent's name
  • Your opponent's division
  • Your opponents sector number on the map
  • Any Firestorm units you utilized during your battle

#19328 Firestorm - Operation Bagration

Posted Zhadow on 02 July 2009 - 11:35 PM

Planned start date will be August 1st, on Saturday.  If you plan on playing in the upcoming Firestorm campaign please leave a post here with your name and planned Nationality, also if you are willing to play multiple nationalities as per our need please indicate that as well.

Player/Nationality

Tristan Allen/Russians
Brian Jordano/Russians
James Kobyra/Russians

John Murdock/US
Dave Hernandez/US

Alex Villagran/Finns
Tom Hauck/Germans
Marko Bartscherer/Germans
Tucker Allen/Germans

There will be a $10 fee to go towards prizes. In addition, I am also going to sponsor Brian for all his efforts from the Falaise pocket campaign so he gets to play this one for free =)

Except where noted below, we will be playing the campaign as it reads from the main Firestorm rulebook.

Force Selection/Army Special Rules

Each player chooses a nationality (Any nationality that has a legal latewar list) before the campaign will begin. They have to play forces from that nationality for the duration of the campaign. Before each game, players will be required to exchange lists (players exchange lists at the same time) so that there opponent may verify the legality of the list. This does mean you may change lists between games.

In addition, if your ENTIRE force (including Firestorm units) is painted with no proxies, once during your game, you may re-roll a failed company morale test. If your force already has this special ability due to your own special rules, then instead you may use this ability twice.

Please note, in the standard Firestorm campaign NO player may buy intergrated air support. In addition Firestorm Air units may never be used in cities.

We WILL be using Phil's rule for Demolition carriers. MALFTF is in effect as well.

Commander - Battle Phase

1. Choose a opponent. For this step, instead of leaving it "free" flowing as it stands, we will be instead be rolling for initiative for placement of arrows. Once ALL arrows have been placed, each commander in turn will assign generals for each battle with the defender assigning first.

Order Two - Combat Step

1. Identify your mission. Please note; unlike the current campaign, attacker/defender is determined by scenario, not by placement of battle arrows. The five column table is used as it stands except the die roll for mission is by column, 1-5, with a 6 being a 1500 point mission determined by re-rolling on the mission chart. If you roll another 6, then the mission becomes a 1250 point mission determined by re-rolling again on the mission chart ignoring any further sixes.

When using firestorm troops, unless you are the appropriate nationality, these troops are considered to be allied forces and follow all rules from page 183 of the main rulebook.

Everything above is subject to change and debate. This is just my first initial thoughts. Any and all feedback is welcome.

This is what I am currently considering for the tournament in November.

What I would like to do is test this out against both super heavy tanks as well as infantry horde to see how it holds up.  I am especially concerned I do not have enough to deal with heavy tanks in the list.

German forces trapped near the French city of Flers have launched a desperate bid to retake the city.  No less then three German divisions are now involved in the fighting in and near the approaches to the city. Forces led by Lt. General Alex Villagran of the 7th Armored Division "Desert Rats" striking outward from Flers have already destroyed the 17th SS-Panzergrenadier Division despite a desperate last stand using the infamous German 88s.  Among the prisoners taken was Oberst Rick "Black Luck" Hewitt.

Patton unleashes his secret weapon.

General George Patton said "I'm supposed to be the best tank commander in the Army, but I have one peer: Abe Abrams. He's the world champion."

Leading the way with the US 37th Tank Battalion, 4th Armored Division aka "Name Enough", Lieutenant-Colonel Creighton Abrams executed 3rd Army's Right hook with flawless precision.    

Advancing rapidly from Ranes towards the critical crossroads near Briouze US forces encounted stiff resistance from elements of the 3rd Fallschirmjäger Division led by the incomparable Lt. General Tucker Allen.  After taking serious losses, 3rd Fallschirmjäger withdrew in good order under the cover of heavy artillery.  With this, the combined Allied forces are close to liberating both La Ferte Mace and Flers which have now been both cut off from axis resupply.

However, the fight is far from over, the Left hook is still within doubt with heavy fighting already being reported by French, Polish, as well as British units.  More from that as news becomes available.

Counting on that Defensive Battle are yee?  I see no reason why you can't stay with the infantry, though, regardless of the mission selection.  You just have to get away from that 14 platoon rigid list that you so enjoy!  Come on, break out of your turtle shell...lol.  There are only four games to be played, after all.  Would you prefer 2nd or 3rd, as it matters (Veteran vice Trained)?

Brian

With preset lists in tourney play the worst I will get is 2 hard scenarios out of 6... not 4 hard ones out of 4.  Defensive battle special rule is in the game for a reason, so when it gets changed so that it is possible for a infantry to attack a tank list makes for a hard game as is.

Sorry, 4 straight games playing against tanks, where I have to attack them and they get ambushes, or if I get attacked I do not start dug-in, and they will get a +1 to go first, and no flexibility in list selection.  Not worth my time to be that frustrated 4 straight games.  I do not mind a challenge but I would prefer not to hit my head against a brick wall for four games.

As far as list goes armor goes, does not matter to me, I will let whoever take what they want and I can play what is left =)

Falaise Pocket Campaign 8 August 1944 – 22 August 1944

Updated: 6/01/2009

Historical Background

The battle of the Falaise Pocket, fought during the Second World War from 8–22 August 1944, was the decisive engagement of the Battle of Normandy. Taking its name from the area around the town of Falaise within which the German Seventh and Fifth Panzer Armies became encircled by the advancing Western Allies, the battle is also referred to as the Falaise Gap after the corridor which the Germans sought to maintain to allow their escape. The battle resulted in the destruction of the bulk of Germany's forces west of the River Seine, and opened the way to Paris and the German border.

Following Operation Cobra, the successful American breakout from the Normandy beachhead, rapid advances were made to the south, the south-east, and into Brittany. Despite lacking the resources to cope with both the US penetration and simultaneous British and Canadian offensives around Caen, Field Marshal Günther von Kluge, in overall command of German armed forces on the Western Front, was not permitted by Adolf Hitler to withdraw; instead he was ordered to counterattack the Americans around Mortain. However, the remnants of four panzer divisions, which were all that von Kluge could scrape together, were not strong enough to make any impression on the United States First Army, and Operation Lüttich was a disaster that merely served to drive the Germans deeper into the Allied lines, leaving them in a highly dangerous position. Seizing the opportunity to envelop von Kluge's entire force, on 8 August the Allied ground forces commander Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery ordered his armies to converge on the Falaise-Chambois area. With the US First Army forming the southern arm, the British Second Army the base, and the Canadian First Army the northern arm of the encirclement, the Germans fought hard to keep an escape route open, although their withdrawal did not begin until 17 August. On 19 August the Allies linked up in Chambois but in insufficient strength to completely seal the pocket. Gaps were forced in the Allied lines by desperate German assaults, the most significant and hard-fought being a corridor past elements of the Polish 1st Armoured Division, who had established a commanding position in the mouth of the pocket.

By the evening of 21 August the pocket was closed for the last time, with around 50,000 Germans still trapped inside. Although it is estimated that significant numbers managed to escape, German losses in both men and materiel were huge, and the Allies had achieved a decisive victory. Two days later Paris was liberated, and by 30 August the last German remnants had retreated across the Seine, effectively ending Operation Overlord.

Campaign Briefing

The main objective is to re-create the battle of the Falaise Gap in August of 1944.  This will be the San Diego Soldaten’s first campaign game to date.  Marko Bartscherer and I will be running the first campaign, with help from Tucker Allen.  We will be using the Firestorm Campaign Rules system with modifications, as needed, for a 4-week (or 4-round) campaign.  Points for your armies will be 1,750 and firestorm troops (if taken) will be used for games in addition to your 1,750 point armies.  Divisions will start the campaign in their (approximate) historical locations; however, after that they may be utilized as the British, US, or German Generals see fit.  We will have as many battles per round as we have player match-ups.  For example, if we have 14 players, there will be 7 battles each round of the campaign.  In addition, if you are not able to make your weekly planned game, either someone will play your list or it will be resolved utilizing the General's Wargame rules (with our modifications).  Finally, there will be special event situations that happen prior to each round that effect that round's games for each nationality.  These will be announced prior to the start of the round of games.

Updated the map...it's now complete

Click here to view the map!

Instructions (Frag Order)

 I will need three volunteers to be either a British, US, or German general for the campaign
 I will need everyone who wants to play to post a message here stating the particular division they would like to represent during the campaign.  We will need axis to = allied players for this to work properly.  Therefore, I may have to ask some folks to switch sides prior to the start of the campaign.  We are looking for at least 8 German players and 8 Allied players to start the campaign.  If you do not have a particular army yet that you would like to play, please let us know on the forum, as someone may be willing to lend you an army for the campaign.  Many of us have several different armies that we can let you use.  Each player may choose one additional division to represent (up to 10 division limit per axis and allies - 20 divisions total in campaign).
 No unit history is necessary; however, I would encourage you to take a historical force for that timeframe.  If your division is not available as a .pdf from the Battlefront website or from a battle book (i.e., Cobra, Monty's Meatgrinder, etc.), just use a basic list from either Festung Europa or Fortress Europe.  
 After you have been given the OK by me or bartschy for a division, you can go ahead and create your 1,750 point army list and send either of us a copy of it.
 Once we have enough players, we will set a start date to begin the campaign.  The campaign rounds will start and end on Saturdays.
  I have one list restriction so far - no Brummbars may be taken in your lists.  There were too few of them participating in this battle to be taken as support.  Therefore, I have decided to make them a Firestorm unit.  Also, you make not take any of the Firestorm Unit Heroes that are listed (e.g., Whittman, Barkmann, or Kurt Meyer) in your list builds, as there can only be one hero on the board in a game.  However, you can take whatever hero, which is not a Firestorm unit, that is eligible for your army.

The attacker is always the player who won the initiative and has the battle arrow going into an enemy territory from a territory they control.  The defender is always the player who lost initiative and is being attacked from an enemy controlled territory.

Please ask any questions or address any concerns here on the forum, as it is likely that someone else will have the same question.
