Nigel

First game of Flames if War in a long time. Nigel brought his US Armoured infantry to the table supported by an eight gun Priest battery, M10 and a strong recce element. I put a 10 strong Pz IV company on the table. Mission was free for all.

The US Armoured infantry were set up on one objective. The US arty on the other objective, and everything else down the middle.

I pushed hard on the US arty which were then forced to move to direct fire. The M10 unfortunately had terrible round of fire & even worse fire power rolls. In the fire fight over the next couple of turns, the Priests fell to the attacking PzIV

Having committed the othe Armoured Infantry and the Recce elements to attacking down the middle of the table, the US didn’t have anything to within range to send back to defend the objective.

The German Panzers were victorious (and didn’t loose a tank!)

    I am so happy to see an axis win. I recommend you put the pictures in between the text next time and also explain the battle a little better, it will earn you a lot better rating.

    Not a bad report, but I can’t give it more than a few stars considering the quality of report that some others have turned in. As Gale has said, a little more description and a few more photos would improve the level of your report, but integrating the text and photos together really improves how a report comes across, exponentially. Congrats on being able to catch your opponent wrong-footed.

    A bit more meat on the report would be great along with a few more photos. Congrats on the win and LET ME SEE YOUR AWESOME PAINTJOBS!! 🙂
