FNF 20 May 1500 pts Second Battle

Stukas swoop in to engage T34s from behind!

The second game was against Lothlann's Soviets and he was running Soviet Infantry (the trained sort) and we rolled up Breakthrough.  I was using the same list as the first battle and was on the opposite side of the board as last game.  Lothlann's list looked something like this:

FNF 20 May 1500 pts First Battle!

Vicious assaults and fire fights!

This was the first week that I could make it for Friday Night Fights at Tier 3 (1500 pts).  I have been agonizing of the decision to bring a Tiger or not (because they are soooo awesome!).  In the end I went another way.  Here's the list I was running.

Friday Night Fights 1000 pts Total war!

Total War!!!

This FNF's was the Total war game at the end of our 1000 pts tier for the Table Top Tacticians and it was an epic fight.  There was 4000 pts on each side with 7 people playing with 3 Allies players playing 2 Russian armoured Battalions (Lothlann), 1 Russian Infantry Battalion (Pripyat) and 1 US Para Company (Joyous_Oblivion) against 4 German players playing Infantry (Ca$h), Armoured Infantry (Ripsey), and 2 Panzers Companies (Diragi and myself, Big Willie).  We were playing Encounter with 2 defensive objectives and one offensive spread out over two 6 x 4 foot tables.  To speed the game up we decided to have each 1000 pt army deploy half their platoons and each 1000 pt army would roll for it's own reserves.  After talking with WWPD and learning how terrain is treated for Nationals we decided to adjust our playing to get us better prepared in the event we get the chance to play in those types of tournaments.  We played from around 7 pm to 1 am and then called it.  There was a lot going on in the game and a very large table so there are likely holes in the coverage, so for the guys who were there sort me out.
