Devil's Charge
The Germans had been in retreat since the Allied breakout from Normandy, finally settling into defensive lines on their frontier as Autumn turned into Winter. In early December 1944 it seemed, to the Americans facing them in the Ardennes forests of Belgium and Luxembourg, unlikely that the Germans would attack.

SS-Kampfgruppe Peiper (GEAB11)

In December 1944 SS-Kampfgruppe Peiper led the spearhead through American lines during the Ardennes Offensive. With a mixture of equipment including Panzer IVs, Panthers, Königstigers, as well as elite SS Panzergrenadiers and Fallschirmjägers, they battered their way through the American lines. Stymied at every turn by “those damned engineers!” he never lost sight of the overall objective and pushed forward until they could go no further.

Characteristics

SS-Obersturmbannführer Jochen Peiper is a Warrior Higher Command Tank Team rated Fearless Veteran. He may join an SS-Kampfgruppe Peiper company (page 10 of Devil's Charge) mounted in his own Panther G tank for +235 points.

Special Rules
To the Meuse!
Peiper’s battlegroup might have been small, but he used it with precision and skill. He knew when to pull his troops together to overcome American strongpoints and counterattacks and, when he could afford to, split his forces to cover more ground and find suitable crossings.


Once each turn, you may re-roll one die when rolling for Reserves.

In a mission using the Scattered Reserves special rule, once per turn you may also re-roll one die rolled to determine where a platoon will arrive from Scattered Reserve.
