The Tournament was a mid-war 1710 point tournament. with 16 players showing up. The terrain was a nice selection of mid-war themed terrain including Itlay, Russia and North Africa.
My army was an eastern front German Pioneer company with 2 platoons of pioneers, a machine gun platoon, 3 Panzer III late J's, a Ferdinad, a looted KV-1, 3 nebelwerfers and a limited HS-129.
The first mission was hold the line and my first game was against been an experienced player from Madison, WI. He played Fearless conscript Tankovy with a Company of M3 Stuarts, and 2 companies of long barreled Lees, with a small unit of recon. The game didn't go good for me. I misappropriated my assets and couldn't get a reserve on my first opportunity on turn 3 and the game was over in the top of Turn 4. I lost 1-6.
|His Tank Destroyers smoked my KV-1 and the pioneers were poised to assault the objective.|
|He took out my ferdinad on the first attempt with his air support. I should have left it in ambush.|
|Joe won the T-Rex for the worst dice of the day. It is supposed to be a new traveling trophy. I'm glad I din't have to take that one home!|
