A Panzer 2
I was going to play Matt at Aeronef, but I broke 2 models looking for the fleet and dropped a box of figures. So I phoned Matt and he was "Don't worry we can do something else!" We did do something else, we both Joined a game of "What a Tanker!" which was run by Graham. This time it started with me and Graham as the Germans and Dick (aka Richard) and Matt playing the British.
|The map from|
The map was a little more open than last time and having almost no armour and a little pop pop cannon I was going to be reliant on using any and all cover I could! (Gulp)
|Das Hero Panzer(yeah right)|
|As Dick shot at me and missed. I was suffering|
from cruelty to small tanks Syndrome.
Yes I ran away and tried to put a hill between us.
It did not work and he shot at me again.
and again missed
|Matt went hull down and Graham started shooting at him|
|Richard felt confident and pushed forward determined|
to persecute a small and weaker tank
|But My tank had teeth.|
I was able to circle around and By using the Building
as a covering piece of terrain
get behind him and fire into his weakest parts.
|Despite being hull down Matt takes enough hits to drive him back|
and then destroy him.
|Graham takes cover from the 2 new British tanks|
|Richard tries again to be needlessly cruel to small and cute small tanks|
and pushes forward . Trapping me behind the building
|Matt's Second tank dies easily on the next turn|
having only been on the table 1 turn
|The cruelty to small tanks continues and Richard sets me on fire.|
Seriously guys there needs to be a law against cruelty to small tanks
The game did not end here 2 more people joined in. And now I took charge of a panserjaeger 1. (the weakest of all Tank hunters). Naff armour but a good gun for the period.
And I turned it around. even if I took no pics. Graham lost his tank and brought on a second 35T. Kev joined the Germans in a Panzer 3 and Tim joined the Brits in another A13 cruiser tank.
After a while the game ended. and the battle field was strewn with tank wrecks. Some German but more British. The only survivors were Matts Bailed out crew on one kill. Grahams crew on no kills and my crew on 4 kills.
I know that next time we play they will all target me especially if I am in a Tank Destroyer. Not just for revenge, although I am sure that will be a factor, but as much to stop me becoming an ace tanker and getting an advantage or two. The rotters. (I am sure I would do the same though so I can't really complain). Either that or they will all start to take German panzerjaeger 1's so do not buy any more Graham.
That's it for now. As no pics you are free to believe I did not do so much damage and I will not blame you even to me it seems far fetched and unlikely! (And I was there, in front of witnesses)
Enjoy the day. Play if you get the chance and dream if you can't play
All the best Clint
