We had a strange pairing today for FOW: 1.5K for each player with Italians and DAK vs Desert Rats and Russians!

Allies won but would have lost except the DAK player go overzealous and bypassed the objective to go after the Russian artillery.  The Brits then almost won by taking an objective but the delayed and random reinforcements of course dropped a bunch of Italian L6/40's and DAK Panzergrenadiers right in place to defend it.  Brits found an alternate path to victory though by killing off the Italian company command and then forcing a company morale check.

Now he needs a hammer and sickle..


Italians on the move:


Brit Mid-War Monsters, TOG*2 tanks in front and Churchill gun carriers in the back:


Das battlefield:


This will not end well for the Italians:

The TOG*2's clear out any resistance on the left flank:


Italian Lancias open fired first on the TOG's but failed to hit, the return fire from the TOG's was devastating!


Churchill's were killing Italians but they just kept coming:


The Italians pushed the center with mass waves of light armor and armored cars, they eliminated all the Russian infantry and punched through the Allies center.


Panzers sweep our flank and engage the KV-2's:

More carnage in action at the center:


Only one Panzer survives the blood bath:


Panzergrenadiers overrun the TOG*2's:


The Churchill's regain control of the center and lay waste to the Italians:


The solo Panzer falls as the two Brit Grant tanks finally arrive for the last turn (Brit Stuarts never made it to the game):

Panzergrenadiers continue their assault and a second TOG falls:


The end of the battle as the Italians cannot pass a company morale check with company command left in the game:

Wow, 40k WW2 :)

I might be mad but surely bovington has at least taught me the silly tanks designed for WWII but on the basis it would be WWI weren't made?

But those silly WWI carry over TOG's are hellish against armor, no so much for infantry though!
