Jeronimon vs Lucky91

This is not a story for the feeble-hearted.


[Desert War] El Haitan
Game 1:
Jeronimon (Allies) 6 medals, 27 fig vs Lucky91 (Axis) 5 medals, 22 fig
Game 2:
Jeronimon (Axis) 6 medals, 22 fig vs Lucky91 (Allies) 1 medals, 12 fig

Match Result Jeronimon vs Lucky91 2-0 games 4-0 points 12-6 medals 49-34 fig

Replay1
I positioned one inf in the long gully to protect the mines in there, and put the 2 artilleries on the red lines (blocking my inf in the gully, not a good story. Sad )
We exchanged 2 infantries each on my right flank, where Luc advanced aggressively. The men in the gully died a horrid death at the hands of German Engineers. I was lucky enough to get one of his armor units on a TFH and weakening the other. But it cost me an artillery. 4-3 1 artillery unit left and three anti tank inf (1 of 2 fig). Luc slowly started to advance on my far left bunker and pinging at the 2 men inf. It was not looking good. But the engineers attacked and flagged me into a position to destroy a singel German tank on my baseline. I thought the inf was going to die but Luc had nor more cards there. He then artillery bombarded the 2 inf unit to death, 5-4 the score.
But that allowed me to reposition my artillery forward to shoot at a lonely German on the baseline. He fled. I Had to put one of my remaining inf in El Haitan and shoot at the inf trying to get to El Haitan via the field bunker, reducing them to 2 fig Luc retaliated and the whole centre attacked my Artilleryreducing it to 1 fig, but failed to kill it because the bunker boys did not block my retreat. I then killed them and shot at the engineers in the far left bunker. 5-5 Luc desperately tried to barrage the lone arty into submission, but flagged it of the hill. I then killed the far left engineers for a very "eye through the needle" victory. A very close and tense match.


Replay2
The most boring match we played all evening. My Germans went up the right flank and cleared the bunker. My Germans went up the left flank and cleared the Bunker next to El Haitan. Then with a General advance they went up both flanks cleared the left flank bunker shot an infantry on my right flank and shot one arty figure there. A Firefight by Luc snagged him a 2 fig Armor Unit. 4-1 the score.
My Barrage took out another British 2 fig inf. Luc's artillery shot at my engineers in the gully and I retaliated by Armor Assaulting it and destroying it for a 6-1 win.
Good cards and ok dice made this one a walk in the park.

Going into the next battle with a 4-0 lead in points was certainly nice.


Operation Chariot/St. Nazaire Raid
Game 3:
Jeronimon (Allies) 7 medals, 19 fig vs Lucky91 (Axis) 6 medals, 28 fig
Game 4:
Jeronimon (Axis) 7 medals, 28 fig vs Lucky91 (Allies) 6 medals, 22 fig

Match Result Jeronimon vs Lucky91 2-0 games 4-0 points 14-12 medals 47-50 fig

My British troops were landing in the night and the cards were not really pointing left right or middle. I started in the middle and tried to position my troops for a Firefight (but not to obviously. Whiffed on a unit at the Normandie doc that kept 1 fig alive and lost my Engineers for it. Kept at it positioning for the firefight and lost another unit in the middle to the single man. Then finally Firefighted and cleared the right bunker and left one man standing in the town near the U-Boot Dock. Got some shelling from tanks but after that killed both single inf and started up the left flank with a TFH. 3-3 the score. Heavy fighting on the left left the score at 5-4 in Luc's favor. But I had my Eye on Normandie Dock. Invaded it for the medal and cleared the bunker there but also fought on the right flank playing my second Pincer Move of the game. 5-6 the score. Got killed in the Normandie Dock buildings. 6-5 for Luc again. Then ran into the Normandie dock again and gambled on a flag to get three Panzers of the U-Boot Dock and succeeded for a 7-6 win. Pfiew
Again cards got to me when I needed them (some I already had) and I could react very well to all Luc was trying. The Gung-Ho came in really handy also.

Last battle of the day and already through to the Semi-Finals. Smile
Luc made short work of the two infantries in the forward towns. A direct from HQ and Firefight did not get me but one medal. But Luc had a hard time coming of the beach and I snagged another unit for a 3-2 lead. We then switched to the artillery flank and it was hard fought. 4-2 form me. 5-4 to Luc. 5-5 and it looked like the end. I had four units surrounding a 4 fig infantry and tow of this could shoot at a 2 fig engineer inf that was holding one of the Normandie dock town squares. But after six dice (with no retreat) there were still 2 fig left. My Singel German holding the other two square of the Normandie dock shot hit only 1 Brit and got Stiff Upperlipped to death. 6-5 for Luc again. He then could not find a medal to close the deal and I could BEL it to the 2 fig engineers holding one of the Normandie Dock building kill them and take the Dock for my final medal and a 7-6 victory.

Again cards helped me greatly. Smile


Apart from game 2 all the games ended with only a medal difference between us, so Luc could have easily won some of those games. But Alas for him it was not to be this evening.

Merci pour jouer, toujours une plaisir de te rencontre.
Prends soin de toi
et a la prochaine. Smile
