The other evening I was able to get an Early War battle in with Steve. I was running German Infantry vs. Steve's dreaded Panhards and French. As usual I am not good at remembering blow by blow since its been some days since the battle took place. I was able to get some awesome pictures and use the new Version 3 rules, hope you enjoy them !
Look to WWPD for additional photos and comments regarding the battle.

The game would finalize at 5-2, I would go to lose 3 moral test on three platoons and leave the field to the french. Awesome game with some crazy events. Much respect to French capabilities ... especially those swarming Panhards !
Keep the Paint flowing and the Dice rolling !
