Take a look at the picture.
My the biggest mistake was placing so many troops on the right hand side of the map. My troops were cut off from the rest of them.
After realizing there was going to be no resistance on the right hand side of the map, they were forced to cross the bridge!
Not surprisingly it was a disaster.
I am the allies and i have to deploy on the north.
I have 180 points. The Germans have 130 points.
As you can see on the maps picture above, all the custom maps have neutral victory locations. This makes it very interesting.
There are no attackers or defenders. Just mutual combat to take the VLs. Very different from the average Close Combat game.
I told him he didn't have to answer me. But he did.
Here i spend all but 3 points.
Mainly heavy Infantry. A bazooka, just in case. 2 tank and 2 AT guns. Mortar, MG gun.
My mistakes are following..
WAY! to many men on the right hand side of the map. They end up being marooned there. And eventually have to cross the bridge while under fire.
I'm undermanned in the middle. And my AT guns are in hopeless positions. Specially the one in the middle looking over the field with the center VL. It gets blown up straight away.
1st tankD, on the top right. Firefly on the bottom right...
(the AT gun in the middle of the map is taken out straight away)
Also, the retreating infantry above are destroyed. .
Here is the situation..
All the guys on the right are cut off. But cautiously advancing.
Retreating infantry on the top left are gone!
Notice a 2nd German tank is spotted at the very bottom left.
In fact its the other way round.
After i realize that there are no Germans on the right side of the map, i try to sneak across the bridge.
But unfortunately its to late..... ^^^^^
The end comes after that, and i flee after losing my AT gun.
i have like, 12 pictures of the next 3 battles. Ill upload them soon. I do a bit better
Here are some more pictures of our game.
In this next battle im the Germans,
Its very hard for the allies. And in my opinion i would of beaten him, if it was not for the game crash.
I inflicted huge losses. He made alot of failed attacks.
I still had a tank. And i doubt his 2 tiny tanks would of been able to beat mine.
This battle i won. It was my favorite battle. And very exciting.
My panzerschreck rocket team is able to take out 2 tanks.
After good firing. I'm able to advance and tank the top right VL. After some intense close combat. I'm able to secure the building.
Wow are Germans just stronger?
Great games. Would love to play him in the future.
