Operation Perch – Speadhead AAR

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a WWII game at the Dogs of War shop using the Spearhead rules and 3mm miniatures from Pico Armor.

The scenario was set during Operation Perch, the British attempt to take Caen, and involved the attack by the British 51st Division out of the Orne River bridgehead on June 12 – 13, 1944. The scenario assumed that the initial British attack was more successful than it was historically, i.e., that the German defensive line had been broken and the British were advancing into more open terrain in their drive on Caen.
