D-Day 76th Anniversary Tournament – 100pt

What better day to hold a D-Day tournament than on the 76th anniversary of the Overlord landings.  Lists must come from one of the D-Day books or supplements, which by June 6th will be all of them,  including the Waffen-SS book. Armies must be 100 points, no other restrictions apply. Round 1 feature Beach or Airborne landings (Allied Lists must be D-1, or D-Day formations, we will provide Landing Craft). Watch for details on allowable German lists after the Waffen-SS book is released. Rounds 2 & 3 will use Battle plans on normal boards with Allied Breakout Lists. This will be a very special event so the entry fee will be $25 but that will include a great catered lunch. Initially we’ll limit registration to 8 Allied and 8 Axis, but if enough interest is shown we’ll increase it.

There is room for up to 18 players.

Fair play and good sportsmanship, as always, will be a key focus of this event, as there will potentially be several new players. Veteran players should take it upon themselves to explain what they are doing and why to their inexperienced opponents to reduce confusion, and encourage them to come to future events.

This will be an Axis vs. Allies team event, but with traditional individual pairings and results reported to Battle Rankings. Soviets may play, but may switch from Allies to Axis depending on the player split. Red v. Blue matching will be observed for each match.

The current rulebook (FW009) and most recent Lessons From the Front will be used. The following force books will be permitted:
Fortress Europe
D-Day Americans
D-Day British
D-Day Germans (including 21st Panzer)
D-Day Waffen SS (if released by event date)

Players must devise one (1) 60-point list and one (1) 100 point list. The 100 point list must include all contents from the 60 point list (including “title” command cards). Model/units may be added to platoons/companies (for instance, adding weapon upgrades or more troops to a platoon), but no model/units may be removed, and no models from the 60-point list may have titles added, removed, or changed.

There will be a narrative element to this event:

GAME #1: “Operation: Perch – Onwards, to Caen!”
60 points, 10:30am – 12:00pm
MISSION: “Rearguard,” Allies Attack

D-Day; Allied troops storm ashore and drive inland towards their strategic objectives. For the British Army, this is a poignant moment – many of the Officers and older men remember their hasty retreat from Dunkirk almost exactly four years ago.

One of the key British objectives is the strategically important city of Caen. By June 10, enough troops are in position to move out and seize this important communications and logistics hub. General Montgomery has ordered that Caen be taken in a pincer movement; at his disposal are the 50th Northumbrian Infantry Division and 7th Armored Division, and the U.S. 1st Infantry Division is advancing south along his western flank.

However, the 21st Panzer and Panzer Lehr Divisions, accompanied by the infamous 12th SS Panzer are determined that the Allies shall not have their prize…

GAME #2: “Operation: Atlantic – Panzer Meyer Counterattacks!”
100 points, 1:00pm – 3:30pm
MISSION: “Armored Fury,” Germans Attack.

After finally seizing the devastated city of Caen on July 19, the next day the Allies launch Operation: Atlantic, attempting to drive south towards the Verrières Ridge. Unwittingly, they drive directly into the jaws of four entrenched German Divisions, complete with dug-in anti-tank guns and backed up by the famous 503rd Heavy Tank Battalion.

As the Allied advance stalls, the notorious butcher Kurt “Panzer” Meyer hurls his infamous 12th SS Panzer division into a bold counterattack!

GAME #3: “Operation: Spring – Showdown on the Verrières Ridge”
100 points, 4:00pm – 6:30pm
MISSION: “Breakout,” Allies Attack.

With Caen still firmly in hand, but little further progress, the Allies are now determined to break out. On July 25th, they begin Operation: Spring – a do-or-die drive onto the firmly fortified Verrières Ridge.

The British and Canadian forces have massed just enough strength to successfully launch their attack… and get into serious trouble! Lurking Panzer and Heavy Panzer Divisions are still in the area, and ready to pounce… The Verrières Ridge will be the grave of many courageous allied soldiers, including the ill-fated Canadian Black Watch Regiment, which on this day will suffer nearly 97% casualties.

Nevertheless, with a fragile bridgehead perilously close behind and the fate of the free world in the balance, the offensive must grind on…

To register email [email protected] with your name and chosen nationality. Players able & willing to field either Axis or Allies are encouraged to announce this at registration and bring both to help ensure even red vs. blue matching.
