Round 4 vs Rob (Canadian Armoured Recce Squadron from Market Garden) and Hold The Line
|Rob won the dice off to defend and picked the large cornfields for his Cautious Movement Canadians to hide in. I put one tank platoon on the right flank and rushed the rest up the left behind the forest.|
|Recon scrambles to keep me in the game for one more turn (to try to break a platoon) but the dice abandon me..|
Round 5 vs Aussie Rob (British Assault Company from Overlord) and Free For All
|We skirmished on the left and centre, Rob loosing a couple of platoons whilst NFGS (Naval Gunfire Support) rained down on my middle tanks.|
Round 6 vs BF Wayne (Hungarian Zrinyi Company) and Hasty Attack
|I setup with tanks on both sides, with the artillery in the middle, Wayne spread his Zrinyi platoons, Panthers on his right flank and Nebelwerfers at the back|
|And three died (triple 1s on the dice) to the Nebelwerfers....!|
|Before the rest were finished off by the Panthers....|
At a rough calculation I threw around 20 dice in the game, 2 or 3 of which rolled a four or more and the game took around 10-15 minutes to set up and 5-10 minutes to play.... on the good side my easy capitulation catapulted Wayne up the table to take out third place (so a good result for team BF!).
15 points on day one.... 5 points on day two. Not a great finish but at least I had a lot of fun and managed to get my 1956 Israeli tank company much further down the path to being almost painted! Although I think I'll take a break from Olive Drab for a while and do a little Dunklegelb for a change.
