Round One I played a relatively new player, John Marquez, who brought a KG Pieper King Tiger list. Five King Tigers and some Wirbelwinds, that's it! The scenario was Pincer and it was already an uphill climb for John. I deployed four platoons, 10.5 howitzers, a Pionier platoon, a Reichsgrenadier platoon with full Panzerknacker upgrade, and had PaK40s in Ambush. John's Tigers had just crossed into my deployment zone when my Reserves all showed up at once, Marders behind one platoon of Tigers and the Panthers behind his CiC. They killed the CiC and one other KT, while bailing the second. On his turn he turned the remaining Tiger platoon to kill the Marders and the Pak40s popped their Ambush on my turn. Combined fire killed two more platoons and with no CiC, was forced to retire. 6-1 final score.

|Second Grens platoon making for the far objective supported by Paks, but Super Fast 2 ID can get there way before I can. Panthers still haven't arrived.|
|Here they are! But so is Brad's TTD security section... I just couldn't match Brad's mobility and firepower.|
|Jeeps doing jeep stuff.|
