Well my run in 2012 has yet to improve as I took another pounding from Paul.
Location: Nicholson’s place
Game: Flames of War
Fielded a British Rifle Company in Italy from Fortress Europe:
- Company HQ
- 2 Rifle Platoons with 3 Squads each
- 1 Gun Troop of the Royal Artillery, consisting of 2 Sections
- Priority Air Support from the Hurricanes of the RAF
- 1 Armoured Platoon of 3 Shermans
Highlight – A platoon of German Panzergrenadiers assault an observer team in the woods and fail to score any hits let alone kill them. A pity the assault went differently.
Unit of the match: The Royal Artillery who took out 4 Armoured Cars and kept some of Paul’s vehicles out of the way, then faced an assault and stayed in the game to keep my hope’s alive. Such a pity that the second Rifle Platoon got lost on the way and then turned up on the wrong half of the board.
