Eric and I played Niederburg Farmhouse a few weeks ago, and the Americans (Eric) won in our match.
I did a deployment, multi-hex attack, but the ROF on the MGs and my bad MC rolling did me in. I advanced my 9-2 led MG kill stack into J10, but Eric's prep fire ruined my DFF surprise.
After thinking it over, I think the German MG nest needs to position itself in H9, and the blue wave needs to come from hexrows J thru P. Two things factor into that thinking
- the 5-4-8s can man the MGs and still be in normal range to I6.2
- the Americans in I6.2 must choose a covered arc for either H9 or the hill and its approaches in hexrows J-P
With my MG nest in J10, Eric could shoot both it and anybody else on that half of the board in each fire phase.
It seems like a tough puzzle for the Germans, but with only a few units, any cracks in the American defense can be exploited. It's a great 2 hour scenario, and hopefully my thoughts will help an Axis player out there somewhere.
