Blitzkrieg 1940 - First Play
Of course the first issue was I didn't quite have the right numbers of figures (why does that always seem to happen?) so I needed to do some tweaking to the forces and add an appropriate backstory. In this case that the French had already been engaged and had fallen back to regroup having taken some losses.
I took the French and prepared for the German onslaught. My opponent made excellent use of the Stuka attack and Shabby Nazi Trick options which, along with some spectacular dice rolling (as you can see below) meant a French defeat; however, we played again and, with a much less effective dive bombing attack, I managed to hold them off the second time.
Here are a few photos from the game (usual apologies for the phone camera quality pics):
