Desperate Rearguard Action in the Burning Sands!

This time we tried the Hold-the-Line scenario in the Flames of War rule book. It has a lot of good special rules that work really well. The Reserves and Ambush rules are particularly effective in making for a tense game!

A German panzergrenadier company in a rear-guard position is charged with holding back a victorious British advance while their “komeraden” are in full retreat. They are on the defensive and dug in. Half of their units will arrive randomly as reinforcements. Two are being held in ambush positions. The question is; will this be enough to hold back the British Desert Rats tank company that wants to block the German retreat? "Tune in" below to find out!
