|My first game back in Richmond! Jon and I were both pretty jazzed to play something out of Italy. Like Jon, I'm pretty smitten with the HG Panzerkompanie out of the Fortress Italy book recently released for Late War Flames of War play, and also really wanted to get some Elefants on the table... just because. We rolled for the mission and came up with Encounter. I rolled as "attacker" and Jon rolled for first turn.|

Jon mostly stays gone to ground, but pulls his Shermans back out of the wheat.
RESULT: The Germans have 1 Pak 40, a Nebelwerfer battery, 2 Panzer IIIs, and 2 8-rads left alive, but score a 4-3.
|This wound up being a really fun game! It was looking like the Germans were going to sweep it early on, but Jon's luck changed and made it a nail-biter. I liked my list- I'm not sure it's super "competetive", but it was a fun one to run. The Elefants worked out- sure I lost them both and they didn't really "make up their points" but they enabled me to push the center and cleared the way for my main thrust on the right flank. Losing the one to 6 pounder defensive fire was a risk I had to take. Losing the 2nd to the M10 was just my big mistake of not taking flank armor into account! |
Anyhow, it was awesome to get a game in with Jon using mostly my own models!
