Well for the second battle of the day we decided to fight across the table and fight a free for all. I deployed my British with most of my strength on the right flank as this was where i wanted to launch my attack and kept a cruiser and light tank platoon & 2ic on the left flank both hidden away behind hills from the 88s and the recce platoon as support. The Germans had a 38t platoon with c/c and the 2 88s on his right flank and the motor cycle and 2nd 38t platoon on his left with the panzer II c hull down on the middle hill of his deployment zone.
The only real chance the German player could win was by destroying 3 more of my platoons and taking my regiment under half strength ( i would lose at the start of my turn as my c/c was dead ). However this was a tall order as most of the German fire power had been destroyed. However the stukas showed up again after a long absence and destroyed a lone cruiser and the 38ts destroyed and bailed a cruiser also. The c/c finished off my scout platoon ( they failed a under half strength test ), The German infantry killed another french stand but were limited as they had remained pinned after last turns combat. I managed to pass my cruisers morale so only 1 more platoon had been destroyed. With a sigh of relief i moved into my next turn sure that i would get the victory.
Conclusion : Well the game went alot better with the British this time. Playing across the board allowed me to close ranks with the Germans alot quicker than the previous game so the German air force had less impact in this game. Also i managed to stay out of sight of those dreaded 88s and only lost a couple of tanks to them. This time i was able to move into mg range and destroy them. Also getting up close to the German tanks allowed me to utilise the tally ho rule to good effect, and with concentrating most of my force onto one objective i was able to bring my greater numbers to overpower and out flank the German tanks. Although the French infantry seemed very reluctant to follow the orders of their British commanders!!
Both games were good fun again but next time ill be back with my Germans and hopefully i might have a few new models to bolster its size.
