Was it wheat or corn fields that stop bullets...
This game was the first time Stormtrooper Nick and I had played Infantry Aces. We went with 500 pt LW lists to try the system out and because the other pieces of my gaming table hadn't arrived so the table was long but small. We modified the distances width wise to try and get the mission to work.
Big Willie's Commandos
Commando HMG platoon
Stormtrooper Nick's Grenadiers
OC and 2IC
Objectives are in the woods behind the barn and on the road by the farm house
Grenadier platoon in the woods while the other is ready to race to the objective
Commando platoons ready to sweep through the wheat to the objective
Commandos race into the wheat fields
HMGs move behind a hill ready to move up and provide covering fire
Commandos continue to advance covered by their own HMGs
Commandos continue advancing and the Grenadiers move out to greet them
The Commando assault is both swift and deadly taking out the Grenadier platoon while losing some of their number in the process
Grenadiers attempt to launch an assault on the Commandos but defensive fire pins them down
Commandos advance and take the objective
As always Stormtrooper Nick is a great opponent and this was an excellent way for the both of us to get some exposure to the Infantry Aces play style and how it is very different than normal FoW. We are hoping to run a campaign in the coming year so stay tuned.
