Flames of War game

Been ages last I posted, but been having games all around just not posting them up on here.

My last game was on Saturday and it was a small 600pt fight, with my friend George fielding americans and I with my recee Puma list.

We played a Free For All mission, and he went first.  With my recee move I took control of the board by spreading out my puma force to take advantage of any angle he would give me and to split his fire across multiple platoons.

I first focused down my fire on his platoon of three chaffees, by presenting him with multiple targets he needed to move to get a shot at. His artillery destroyed two of my pumas on my left flank and I lost another I think to one chaffee.  I followed up by moving to get shots off to shoot at his platoon and killed off two and he failed moral and that platoon broke.

The game was hard fought with his infantry killing one of two halftracks from my cannon platoon but I lucked out having one live to the end of the game.

I then focused on gunning down his infantry when it moved but was mainly focused on reducing his 4 gun artillery battery of those cut down versions of the 105mm.

In the end I destroyed 2 platoons of his 3, and he killed 2 of 6 of mine. He failed company morale and and his forces broke.

Lessons learned don't let infantry get a flank shot with rifle fire they will kill Puma's, well at least two of mine.  Firepower of 4+ is painful to roll.  I am not sure if I will use this force in the upcoming battle of 600 games we are having but I my just do it for the challenge it presents me.
