Some nice shots here of a couple of games me and steve played this weekend. The strong natural light coming through his front window in the afternoon gives a high contrast and we were pretty pleased how they turned out.
We played both games at 1500pts, the first was Encounter where my motor company dug in and countered on the right with Grant tanks and carriers. Steve's tanks were split over both flanks and the grants knocked out the L6 light tanks quickly allowing the carries to advance on His artillery. On the Left flank His M14's were seen off by the now dug in RHA battery though he manages to overrun an infantry platoon in the eventual assault, his company commander went down to my infantry follow up leaving little left to fight on.
The second game was Hold the Line and whilst i managed to pour a lot of shells onto his advancing light tanks and infantry the survivors doggedly kept on and managed to hold up on my forward objective long enough to grasp a close win. I was a bit unlucky and should have kept a closer eye on the distance from my objective but they were both great games. Steve's now got himself a pair of Lancia's on order to counter my Grants so we'll see how i do next time but have really enjoyed playing motor company so far.
