We each had 800 pts.
I fielded the list I've just completed- mainly regular but with some vet pioneers
3x regular squads with LMGs (2 sections had 2x LMGs)
1x MMG (Vet)
1x free light artillery
We rolled up Hold until
Relieved and after winning the dice roll I decided to attack- after all we were kicking off the 1940 German World tour.
A couple of shots of Tony's lovely new French army- like me he prefers double figure basing.
The building with the roof off is the objective, it has one squad of French infantry, the other house has a squad to help hold the objective.
Turn 1: My infantry advance.
A fun game and as good to have an early war battle. As with most systems it plays differently than the more typical late war big toys games but was a hell of a lot of fun. Tony has a really well painted army and it was good to get an historic match for my Early War Germans. 800 pts made for a great game but as per usual I wished I had an extra squad or two of infantry but I was fielding all I had. One thing that impressed me tonight was the nastiness that is two light machine guns in a squad- might need to look into that myself.
