Trucked Pioneers vs Armoured SS Infantry in Free for All

 The Killing Fields!

This game was a 1650 LW game to help us get ready for the coming fall tournaments. I played against Dan and we rolled up Free for All. I'm continuing to tinker with my Pioneer list and this game was going to give me more food for thought. The main debate that I'm finding is Armoured troops with Tigers or Trucked troops with Panthers. What do you guys think?

Massive Carnage!

This battle was again a 1650 LW match up in preparation for the Nov tournament to be held at Perkins Hobby House. I played against Ian who was running Wiking Panthers. We rolled up Counter Attack, which worked out well because I wanted to play a mission I wasn't as familiar with.
