Eric's thoughts.... This was a pretty dull game for me as Luke had to do all the work. Westfalen is not fun for me, don't get me wrong I think the Westfalen is a decent list its just not my playing style. To do well with them you have to sit still and let your opponent come to you, which all fine in a defensive battle but free-for -all it is different story. You don't have much that can threaten the opponents objective other than King Tigers and if they leave babysitting duty of the Trained infantry you could be in deep trouble. I did really like the volks artillery unit, that is a solid outfit.
These Westfalen lists are pretty cool, but seem to lack the ability to move. As such the Westfalen player seems to always be defending in fair fight missions. I changed my list from having the 155mm guns to give myself a little more flexibility in maneuver, but I found myself missing the AT 5 FP 2. With that the King Tigers would have died and I would have been able to move with relative ease. Lastly, I think the fact that we were both tired and were playing casually had an impact on the game. Not even half way through we were both ready for the game to be over and did some things we may not have normally done in order to move the game to it's conclusion. Regardless, It's always fun to play with Eric and it was still an enjoyable game.
These two clown-shoes can be heard on the WWPD podcast ...god knows why anybody would listen to them after this battle...
