WW2 Disposable Heroes Coffin for Seven Brothers AAR

Some pics from a bring and battle WW2 game we did this past weekend using Disposable Heroes Coffin For Seven Brothers.

The table, a Holland theme.

German Grenadiers guarding a Nebelwerfer.


American forces of Rlee

British Paras and Cromwell of Mongo.

The Nebel Werfer rains death down on the advancing Allied forces.

German reinforcements arrive, SS!

The Sherman takes hit from the Nebelwerfer immobilizing it.

A Stug arrives to lend support to the Germans. Mongo wails openly like a distraught Jonathan Harris.

Hans and Dieter hold the line for 3 turns against insurmountable American forces before being routed.

The Amerikaners advance and take the "Crater of Death"

The Stug lands a crippling hit on the British Cromwell.

The GIs take the forest of Hans and Dieter.

Herr Allen's Germans hold their ground, but the werfer es KAPUT!


More German forces arrive, SS with a 250/9

And a 250 with support gun.

Americans advance but suffer pins from Hans and Dieter.

Mongo's Red Devils advance through the woods.

Another Cromwell arrives!

Herr Allen lays down mortar fire on the Paras!

The SS add fire support against the paras.

The US command also takes a mortar hit and a pin.

A bazooka takes out the 250/9!

Hans and Dieter fire and manuever falling back through the woods to the building.

The British PIAT team makes a dash out of the woods and fires on the German armor only to miss.

Last turn and the Americans beat Hans and Dieter to death for delaying their advance for 4 turns! In the end the Allies met one of their objectives leaving the game as a tie!

It was nice to dig out some of my WW2 stuff that hasn't seen use in awhile, for Mongo it was a few years!!

More to come

  3. This was a fun game man, thanks for hosting! It was fun pulling out the WW2 stuff. The Red Devils got a warm up for when Hitler drops Nazi Zombies on England.
