After the game with Hal a few days ago, I decided to swap the expensive StuGs for a few more cheaper platoons, but was kind of limited by what I have painted for Early War. In the first round I'd be playing Russ and his British Infantry Tank company in Dust Up.
|Russ led his HQ tanks towards the objectives, but my Looted T-34 was enough to force them to fall back. My heavy mortars had also hit his Rifle platoon very hard that were on the objectives on his side.|
|Russ' Matilda I tanks arrived from reserve and would slowly make their way forward. His 2iC would avoid destruction.|
|My infantry would arrive from reserve and push towards the objective, now only defended by his HQ tanks and a single stand that remained from his Rifle platoon.|
|My T-34 would position itself to defend both objectives, only it and my Company Commander remaining after artillery and tank assaults destroyed my infantry and mortars.|
|Somehow my company survived long enough to chase Russ' Matilda II into the river, where it failed a Cross Check during an attempt to retreat after my infantry assaulted it. I would win the game, barely.|
In round two I would be facing Brad and his Soviet Tankovy Batalon in No Retreat.
|Brad's tanks would get to my objectives very early, but so would my reserves.|
|My T-34 would knock out a pair of T-26s, but his KV-1 got the T-34. Several ineffective assaults would see my infantry still holding the objective.|
Thanks to Russ for running this small event, hopefully most of us learned something about V4!
