This list is pretty fun to play, I Kampfgruppe the two Panzer IV Es out of the Panzer Platoon, giving me six platoons. The Panzer II recon moves through terrain nicely, and Rettemeier in a Panzer IV G kills things dead. The Panzer IV Es can also bombard in a pinch, and get direct fire Smoke rounds.
Jon ran a nine platoon Schnellkompanie from Eastern Front with two Schnell Platoons, Pioniers, PaK40s, Marder IIs, Nebelwerfers, 2cm FlaK, a captured KV-1, and a micro Kampfgruppe of questionable legality. We rolled for scenario and got Breakhrough.
|Jon set up a nasty mess of AT pointed at the open approaches to the Objectives, and with a rail line and a river crossing the board would be slow. I decided to run around the long way, around the woods and through Jon's undefended nebelwerfers.|
|Panzer IIs got there first and Assaulted them.|
|Knowing the KV-1 would be likely arriving soon, I positioned my Panzer IV Gs to watch my backside while the rest of my armor pushed through the woods.|
|I attempted to make a bridge crossing here and split his defenders, but one Pak40 took out two tanks and they ran away.|
|Jon is always aggressive with his Flak, even the towed variety. He tried to send them to harass my own nebelwerfers, but my 2cm flakwagens met them in a flak-duel!|
