«Casa Lisa Anna» - this vacation house became the central pillbox of our Alpenfestung XIII in 2019.


«Ohne Mampf kein Kampf» (along the lines of «no fight without food»): Breakfast on Friday morning. 


The «Son of Squad Bleeder» experiment: Random maps and a secretly purchased OOB.


This «Squad Bleeder» battle was indeed a witch's cauldron - with infantry, artillery, tanks, and even ground attack aircraft - everything in a tight area...


To remove our CX counters, some of us went swimming in a nearby lake.


ASL players use a special from of pedicure - all organic, Swiss style! :o)


Our BBQ evening was the culinary highlight...


The second round of the tournament was located in the Pacific - John tries to assault (or defend?) Brigade Hill


A day near the beach...


...where some nasty surprises waited for the advancing American squads!


Marc received congratulations for his tournament victory...


...and felt he had seen the trophy somewhere before... (he built and painted it!)


Did we manage to wet your appetite for our jubilee Alpenfestung XIV in 2020? Please send me a message if you want to be updated about its planning.
