Relax soldier, Paris has fallen. You deserve a rest!
A general 750 point battle over the weekend.
We played a heaily wooded table with Ben bringing his very soviet looking DDAY attackers.
We rolled scenario and it was a straight up fight, destroy more units than your opponent, game on.
I took an infantry heavy force with some back up panzerfausts, MMG team and a sniper.
Ben took a medium tank lots and lots of infantry and an assault engineer squad.
The light cover pretty much across the board helped the Germans massively but the assaukt engineers with their body armour and the sheer number of troops on the field meant i struggled to kill off a single unit, with my opponenet being really shrewd and retreating fro the action when the units were down to a few men.
By the close of the last turn i had lost two units (a lucky shot killed off my sniper team and one of my squads got shredded my some surprisingly accurate rifle fire from the inexperienced troops! Vasily was definitly in that squad somewhere!)
My force also suffered from a lack of armour as the medium tank (a T34 in Normandy!) didnt come anywhere near my panzerfaust toting troop and sat back shooting HE.
Back to the list building for the 352nd division!
