My buddy Tom and I played one of the WWPD Firestorm Bastogne campaign games yesterday, with me playing as the 101st Airborne, against a tide of German infantry. With the scenario special rules only allowing infantry and man-packed gun teams, this was always going to be a meatgrinder!
I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, while I am sure I’m in the minority, I do not like WWPD. They place far too much focus on aspects of the hobby that I dislike. But, that being said, I did enjoy this game, and appreciate them running a campaign.
After at least three full turns of all-out firing, the game came down to the Germans braving death or glory in an assault on a pinned down LMG unit. The risky moved paid off, with the unit of Grenadiers effectively chewing their way up the thin green-grey line of paratroopers, and seizing the objective.
I look forward to playing the next campaign turn soon!
