As I continue packing for my move, I am leaving as much Flames of War stuff, as possible, to be packed last. Since my minis will be inaccessible for three whole months, I'm trying to cram in a few more games! Tom obliged me today with a little Blood, Guts, & Glory action. After seeing Bill Wilcox's success with 3 Jumbos, I decided to give a stripped down version of his Nats list a shot. We played at 1500(ish), so I had to cut back a good deal from 1780, but I felt I still captured the essence of the list.
Tom went all in with a reluctant trained panzer horde.
7th AD: HQ (1 Jumbo, M32 TRV). 2x Platoons each with 1 Jumbo, 2 Easy 8s, 1 M4A3. 4x Stuarts. Recon platoon (1 halftrack, 1 jeep). Priest battery w/ AOP. Full Armored mortar battery.
Panzerkompanie: HQ (2 Panthers). 4x Panthers. 2x Platoons w/ 4 Panzer IV Js. 3 Stugs.
6-1 to the Yanks.
Closing Thoughts: Jumbos and E8s are a fantastic combo! The Panthers just couldn't do anything to me. I'm sorry I dismissed Jumbos at first!
