In the first of two rounds I was matched up against Hayden and his CT Luftwaffe Feldkompanie. He is a pretty new player and hasn't painted any of his troops yet, he also had to proxy a platoon of Stuer Emils and a Dicker Max. The mission was Free For All.
|Hayden had much of his force, including the Super-heavies, on my left side. I decided to hold on that side while pushing forward on the other.|
|I eventually assaulted the objective with the T-34 and Panzergrenadiers, taking the win.|
|My Stukas would claim an eary victory, knocking out a Panther and a Panzer III on my first turn.|
|My other Panzergrenadier platoon Double Moved and hustled over to the open objective. They were able to arrive before Blake's panzers arrived.|
|The Panzer IIIs would get to the objective on about turn four and would Assault into my troops, who would fail their check to counter. I fall back, but still have time before the objective goes live.|
|My StuGs and T-34 would finally arrive, but one would be destroyed by the lone Panther. They found themselves behind the Panzer IIIs.|
|My Marder IIIs would reposition to fire on the Panther's rear, knocking it out.|
|A battle around the objective ensues on turn six, but Blake's Panzer IIIs would find themselves surrounded and destroyed.|
I ended up in a tie for most victory points with Eric, Hayden and Blake's father. After secondary points I would also get third over-all, good enough for about $23 in store credit, which I used towards some winter gun crew for my newest project. Thanks to Keith for hosting, to both of my opponents for good games, and to Alex for driving four-plus hours each way!
