|Mason's Churchills made broad advance supported by armored cars. My Nebelwerfers and Mortars concentrate on the 25 pounder battery.|
|My defense, Panzergranadiers and artillery.|
|My other objective was defended by Assault Pioneers and Sd Kfz 231s, but the Panthers arrive quickly from reserve.|
|Once the Churchills get closer I ambush with the Marders, knocking out several.|
|The Panthers blunt the Churchills that were threatening the right objective, and knock out a few armored cars as well.|
Once the Panthers arrived the Churchills were in trouble. I was able to knock out all of his formation units and win 8-1.
My second game was against Clive and a combined US Armored Rifle Company and British Crusader Armoured Squadron. I would be attacking in Breakthrough.
|I push forward out of the pre-plotted artillery area, but can't go much further since the Armored Rifles are Regulars and in a fortified building. The halftracks are lurking as well. A whole Crusader Squadron is waiting in reserve as well.|
|My Panthers and Armored Infantry try to work around the fortified church, but 6 pounders ambush the halftracks, knocking them all out. I lost half of my unit as well.|
|Half of a second Armored Rifle unit would support the anti-tank guns and my attack would stall due to the firepower concentrated in this area.|
My last game was against Sam and his British Motor Company, attacking in No Retreat.
|I moved aggressively forward towards the front objective, which was hiding behind Sam's dice tower, with my Pioniers and infantry. Nebelwerfers and Panthers would knock one of Sam's 25 pounder batteries down to a single gun.|
|The Pioniers move through the minefields, and assault a Motor platoon out of the trees, then clear some of the mines to allow the half-tracks to follow. More infantry and armored cars advance forward by turn three.|
Overall, a good event and I enjoyed playing this list. Top score was 17 points, as everyone had at least one draw, and my 12 points were good enough for third place. I predict that there will be lots of draws at Nationals at this high point level.
