Cancon Practice

Jim & Refrey's Hungarian light Inf v. Thomas & Rich's Strelkovy

1500 pts Midwar.  Breakout Mission, Soviets defending

The Soviets deployed in the far LH quarter of the table - Infantry, Honeys & Heavy Artillery on the table, 5 T34's to come on in near corner.

The Hungarians put their Paks on the LH side, 105's & infantry on the RHS.  Most of the heavy platoon was attached to the infantry on the table.  More ing antry and 5 38T's to come on as reserves.

The Hungarian infantry advanced to contest the objective near the cornfield with infantry.  The Soviet Honeys moved up to contest that objective while the Soviet infnatry occupied the village securing the other objective.

Both side's reserves didn't arrive until turn 4.  The Hungarians were brought on on the left.  The T34's had to run the gauntlet of Paks to reach the critical area.  One bogged in the woods, but the others moved out to face the Paks.  Only 3 tanks able to fire at the paks, but that was enough to destroy them all (one had already been picked off by artillery).

The 38T's moved around the Soviet rear to enagage the Honeys, but with little success and when the artillery moved up into their rear, they  turned round to destroy them instead. 

The Soviet armour made a converging attack on the infantry in the cornfield and destroyed them.  The armour then turned on the 2nd Hungarian infantry & destroyed that.   The Hungarians then failed morale.

Once again this Hungarian list failed after the dice made it the attacker v. an infantry coy with superior armour.  Clearly this is not this coy's strong suit, but they were faced with Soviets with a sound plan (Thomas' not Rich's) and they lucked out at every critical event.

You really make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really one thing which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I'm having a look forward on your subsequent submit, I'll try to get the dangle of it!
