The German forces won a hard-fought 500 point victory at Oklahoma D-day 2018. This was my 19th year to attend and it was one of the most memorable of all! The HGP team put on the BEST minis ever at D-day!!! Tanks were allowed to park like in the past; there were scorable objectives for each mini & there was a history lesson/briefing before each game! All the minis were based on actual battles that occured during WW II & were a lot of fun.
The Buzzard ruled the roost in Tuesday's mini - we rolled Coleville & the German forces prevailed in the game. The Buzzard had a tough rest of the week - battery died; starter issues; she over-heated during the tank-on-tank game & was only able to stay in the battle for 20 minutes, but Brian had 13 kills in that 20 minutes. The Buzzard made about 2 hours in the main game Saturday but then she began having carburetor issues & I had to sadly park her in DZ 4. I took over command of Soulcrusher & the rest of the crew ground-pounded to help in the final victory. Buzzard will be back stronger than ever next year.
