Chez Nick's 21/01/11

Early War FOW 1500 pts
Jim's Schutzen v. Leigh's British Rifles
Cauldron Mission on 6x4

The Brits lost the toss & defended, placing 3 infantry down with 2pdrs in immediate ambush & with 25pdrs, MkIIIB, bugs & HMGs in Reserve.

The Germans put down 1 Infantry, Mortars & HMGs - all close together in a village straddling zones 3 & 4 - with 38t's, Gerpanzerert Pioneers & another Infantry in reserve.  The Germans were content to wait for their reserves before attacking.  They were slow coming & the MkIIIB's came on first & attacked the Moratrs.  The Mortars were lucky to get away with only 1 loss before the 38T's came to the rescue.  The rest of the Germans reserves camme on soon after - all concentrated on the right.

The German began their attack on the nearest objective with an Infantry platoon with suport from Mortars, HMGs & 38T's.  The MkIIB's counterattacked, but were destroyed by the 38T's.  The Infantry took the objective but was so badly mauled it was soon destroyed by a counterattack by the bugs.  But the 38T's took them out and the Brits were unable to stop the Panzers taking the objective, or to blast them off it.
