ORIGINS 2001

Rich, Greg, Dave Choat, and Mark Hayes attended the Origins convention this year and put on some demonstration games. Craig Lytton was kind enough to share some of the photographs that he took of a demonstration game, a Task Force Cherry Battle, and, just to remind us where we came from, an ACW battle using the Fire & Fury ACW rules.

Demonstrating the rules

Here are a couple of pictures of U.S. forces taking on Elefants in a rules demonstration being conducted by Greg Lyle.

Greg shows the rules
Greg demonstrates the rules by having a Battalion of U.S. Armor assault a couple of Elefants.

The U.S. finds out about 88s
Engaging in gun combat with Elefants is not a good idea, as is shown here.
Demo Picture 3
Close combat is the way.
As is shown here, if the U.S. can maneuver into a close combat situation, it is possible to take on the powerful German units with a good chance of success.

The German Rearguard
In this scenario, the Germans not only must advance against the Americans to the West, but defend against Americans coming from the East. The Eastern town is strongly held.

A Panther Attacks
The Northern Column pushes into the town, spearheaded by a Panther. This may not be a good idea, as infantry are at their best in this situation.
