PanzerKompanie vs Russian Tankovy in Counterattack

Panther's in the killing fields surrounded by burning hulks!

Game 2 of the Paths of Glory 1500 MW tournament was against Ian.  Again it was tank company against tank company but this time I won the roll to be the attacker.  Ian was running Russian tanks that had a Canadian connection based on the Valentines that were produced in Montreal and lend leased to Russia.

PanzerKompanie vs Aussie Div Cav in Fighting Withdrawal

RAF Hurricanes rock the Panzers!

Game 1 of the Perkins 1500 MW tournament was Fighting Withdrawal and it pitted me against the Dice Devil's own PhantomRescue.  He was playing Aussie Div Cav and I was playing a PanzerKompanie.  He won the roll to see who the attacker was, so my Panzers were going to be playing defence this mission.

Paths of Glory 2014

Xander's MW Americans (ok this wasn't from the tournament but it's awesome!)

Today Perkins held a MW 1500 tournament for FoW.  It was 3 rounds and a special thanks to Luggs for running the event.  The only hang up was the delayed start time, but that was because of Hydro One and nothing the tournament organizers or Gary could have helped.

I played 3 games which will becoming as battle reports shortly but I wanted to show the armies.  They were fantastic!
