Bolt Action 1800 pts Tank War on big table

Mark's Germans v. Simon & Chris' Brits

We modifed the Tank War scenario to compensate for the big table.  There are 7 objectives, 2 on hiltops on each side and 3 down the centre in the villages & nearest ridge.  The game started with each side alternating putting vehicles within 18" of their table edge.  The Brits had more vehicles so put down three at the start and the last.
The Brits are on the right.  Most of the tanks have been declated to be hull down on the ridges.
The Brits move fast to seize all the central objectives the objectives.  (There is a Piat team in the far village, infantry in the RH house in the near village and the Cromwell has taken the nearest ridge).
It was soon apparent that the Germans erred in their initial deployment.  The 3 Shermans & a Firefly dominated the centre while the Tiger was wasted on the near flank.  It did toast the Cromwell, but was popped in turn by a lucky shot from a Sherman.  The Germans tried an infantry attack in the near village but it was beaten off.
