Jim's Fucilieri defending v. Nick's US Mech in 1550 pts Trenchfight fought on the desert table from last week
The terrain made it hard for Nick from the start - a wadi restricted his options and limited his attack to a narrow front. The Ities had 2 vicious ambushes - 4 75mm guns & 4 Semo 95s - the 6 gun Priest battery evaporated along with most of the M10s. Nick struggled forward gamely for a while, but with the Itie reserves coming on regularly at 1 a turn it didn't look good. When his leading infantry got pinned on the wire & didn't unpin he quite reasonably conceded the battle.
