Bolt Action / Re: Escalation League Game Results
« on: April 15, 2018, 08:32:13 PM »
Player: Michael C.
Opponent: Scott M.
Date: 15 April 2018
Mission: Key Positions
Result: British victory
Units Destroyed: 3 to 0
The Germans (Scott) lost a half-track, an infantry squad, and their infantry gun. The British (Mike) escaped without loss (due to luck, mostly). The key to this game was the Germans' lack of long-range AT firepower (Scott will be reinstating the Puma in future lists).

MVP: For the Commandos, probably the large infantry squad. It held the center objective and successfully assaulted the German assault squad. For the Germans, it would have been the assault squad, with a bit better luck on the panzerfaust rolls.

Logistics: Bren Carrier purchased and assembled.

I hope to be there, but I'm fighting off a cold so I'll have to see how I feel tomorrow.

Player: Michael Cunningham
Opponent: Matthew Fullmer
Date: 8 April 2018
Mission: Hold Until Relieved
Result: British victory
Units Destroyed: 11 to 2
The Soviets (Matt) lost everything except the T-34. The British (Mike) lost a sniper and an artillery observer. The key to this game was going to Turn 7. At the end of turn 6 the game was a draw, but the Commandos were in good position in the center of the table.

MVP: For the Commandos, probably the Cromwell. It commanded the center of the table and knocked out a number of units that were contesting the objective. For the Soviets, perhaps the T-34? It was the sole survivor.

Logistics: PIAT team painted and Cromwell assembled, primed, and first few coats of green applied.

The problem is time. If I had unlimited time to take an objective or two, I probably could have done it. But with only six turns (or seven if lucky) one has to move quickly. I took a cautious approach at the beginning of the game, which, in retrospect, was a mistake. The next time I'm attacking in Point Defense I will send everyone forward at a run for Turn One (and perhaps Turn Two as well).

A few other observations:
  • The British Forces book does include the Preliminary Bombardment rule, just like the main rule book, so I can roll two dice for each defending unit and pick the best result (assuming the bombardment happens in the first place!)
  • Tracked vehicles are able to Advance over obstacles (unless they are of the anti-tank variety) with no penalty, so the walls should not have hindered Matt's T-34. We assumed they were impassible, like buildings.

That looks fair to me. What do you think, Matt?
