Game 1 was vs Ethan Phillips he was one of the two Napier boys he also has a blog make sure to visit www.facebook.com/anempirefallen . He was running Japanese I had never fought this nation before and boy was I in for a shock.
|Two suicidal Jap AT bombs the Sherman and At gun made quick work of them.|
|His army didn't look that big but when you have to kill them to the last man they just keep coming.|
|This Squad was the first to die. Taking a lot of fire just wore them down.|
|I kept my half track and vet infantry squad in reserve but they didn't turn up till turn 4. By then he was right on top of them when they came on.|
|My M4 Sherman was the last man standing and survived the game no matter what Ethan threw at it.|
Game 2 was vs Chris Stewart he was the second guy from Napier he was running British with a AVRE Churchill heavy tank. So buildings were a no go zone with that around.
|My Vet infantry and Sherman went up one flank and everything else stayed central.|
|My sniper and At gun meet resistance at the hedge.|
|On the right side my .50cal and .30cal do their best to hold back the infantry advancing through the bushes until help can arrive.|
|My flanking maneuver on the right had gone well. AT gun and squad of infantry dispatched with.|
|The next turn though my flank march came to a grinding halt. I fired first but missed Chris didn't make the same mistake.|
|With my last AT asset gone the Churchill had free reign on the table but luckily the game ended before too much was killed.|
Even though I had lost my first two games I quite enjoyed playing them vs so new opponents. But it was time to get out of the heat in that hall not helped but one of the event organizers turning on the heating thinking the controls were for air conditioning. Oh well home for the evening.
