Jim and me were opting for an extra Medium machine gun a flame thrower and a granatenwerfer.
I basically rolled abysmal and sent section after section into the meatgrinder, just to get to the centre staged Beutepanzer. To my surprise Jim, the old one, didn't roll very well on his fire dice for his MMG or grenade rifles. Thats what saved me in the end, my troops got shot under my feet away but my engineer got in the damn tank and after two fails started the bloody engine!!! 6 inches, if you are under constant fire, can be damn far away. But in the end, I would say, you can't come between a Schneider (me in this case) and his Beutepanzer! It just ain't gonna happen. After all, we had more casualties, but our morale was still fine, band with the panzer in our hands , it was a straight victory!
The second game was a Napoleonic one, where I was gang pressed into fighting in the Grand Armee against the Habsburgs. The rules where OK, but as I never studied them enough, I pretty much played on automaton and failed spectacularly, as I charged and rolled a double 1(!!!) and the opponent rolled a double 6!!! We were finally beaten by Austrians, yes my dear friends it cannot get any worse!
One battle you win the other you loose - Fortuna is a not a lady!
Still a very enjoyable experience!!!
