This was the most entertaining game of the day. Mitchell kept a positive attitude no matter how crappy the dice were and we both had a real laugh at this topsy turvy game.
Schutzen company (2 schutzen platoons- 2 pak 38s each, 4x 105s, 4x carri).
5-2 to the Soviets, but once a gain a fun, and very close game.
A really enjoyable day. The tankovy were fun but fragile and only just scaped thorugh several games- it really needs at least two more T34s but at 100 ppts its hard to get enoug. However, I ended up coming 2nd, just above Poochie and just behind Jeff L. I enjoyed all the games and thought the format was excellent.
I wanted to use the day to learn the new rules and enjoyed them- the changes are great, even H&C.
As for the list, I really regretted taking the Valentines and think the SU122s would have been a better/ more useful choice. I found the combination of slow + no HE to be very limiting, whereas the T70s and T34s were able to move back and forward to switch pressure, something the Vals just couldn’t do. I enjoyed the new- H&C rules different but limiting, but at least their MGs were useful. However, the additional +1 to hit really hurt the T70s so make the Stuarts a very tempting. I’m now tempted to look at a tankovy of Stuarts & Shermans for Southcon- maybe even with a razvedki on M3A1s to keep the All American theme…
Finally, many thanks to Stephen S for once again organising a great day- he does an outstanding job at all comps he organises and really is the pillar of the FoW community in this part of the world.
