We did play tuesday, but it was a crazy week for me work and private wise. (Good crazy, libraries in the Netherlands to open next monday, woohoo! Smile)

But that did take my priorities away from reporting here, sorry. Wink


First of all, congratz to public enemy number one: Vercingetorix for reaching the final and winning yet another title. Ga zo door vriendje, de volgende keer pak ik je weer! Smile

And congratz to Sam for reaching the final and playing the Belgian Beast. Smile


The "small final" for third place was played between DoctorSchizzo and myself, always a pleasure to play the Doc and this time was certainly no exception.


OPERATION CHARIOT/ST. NAZAIRE RAID


Replay1
Docs Allied troops advanced through the center and took the town near the U-Boot dock easily killing my brave defenders with 4/4 dice. Meanwhile I was moving my troops to my right flank where I had cards to spare. The Allied engineers flagged me out of Normandie dock and took ground. That might have been a mistake because I obliterated them. Heavy fighting ensued on that flank and around the U-Boot dock. Me scoring medals in the flank Doc scoring medals around the Dock. When I eventually cleared the flank of the Allied pests I was leading 6-3, but with problems on the other side. Doc advanced and made a power move for two objective medals and three dice on a 2 fig armor unit, but only managed to destroy one tank. I retaliated by killing a lone figure on an objective (BELling that dude! Wink ) and taking the game 7-5 in about 44 minutes and 22 turns (11 each).

Replay2
I tried to stay "without form" as long as possible as Sun Tzu says and advanced on all flanks with a spearpoint in the middle. managed to clear the two towns there pretty quickly. A brave German cam out of the bunker on my right and took the hill on the beach. Did not manege to all him next turn but moved a lot of troops to the right flank to attack him and follow up with an infantry Assault. That git me 2 medals more but also got my Engineers ambushed and killed. The following turn Docs Germans took out two more units for a 4-4 score. But a move out saw me advance from the 2 taken towns in the middle onto the medals of U-Boot dock and Normandie Dock and send 2 infantries after 2 Germans in the bunker on my left and 1 infantry attacked a 2 fig armor unit on the right. The Armor survived, but the Bunker was cleared for a 7 -4 win. This game took half of the time and turns of the firs one: 22 minutes and 11 turns.


DoctorSchizzo vs Jeronimon
Game 1:
DoctorSchizzo (Allies) 5 medals, 20 fig vs Jeronimon (Axis) 7 medals, 26 fig
Game 2:
DoctorSchizzo (Axis) 4 medals, 14 fig vs Jeronimon (Allies) 7 medals, 21 fig

Match Result DoctorSchizzo vs Jeronimon 0-2 games 9-14 medals 34-47 fig


Onto El Hatian with a 5 medal lead was certainly heartening, but in M44 you never know. Smile


Replay3
Snuck an engineer into the right wadi and advanced my Germans over both flanks slowly and got some distance fire. Got lucky on a firefight and cleared the bunker and right flank. My Engineers in the wadi hand to hand combat dit out with an English unit and won it (lucky 3/3 close combat, meanwhile also got an engineer in the other wadi. Leading 2-0 and having one flank cleared, not bad.
Advanced over the cleared flank but an artillery bombard saw the English move all troops to around El Hatian. Retreated my left flank and put some extra guys in the Wadi (blocking retreat for the engineers). Got an armor unit reduced to 1 tank and an infantry trying to sneak up on my untreatable Engineers. But a general advance gave me the opportunity to retreat more on the flanks and advance in the middle so still looking good. Tried to advance but got shot to bits with an TFH 2-2 the score. Long distance firing got me another medal and German Airplanes weakened the English troops. All English now concentrated in my left flank, Infantries in wadi and bunker and artillery on the second row from the baseline. Advanced on that flank and lost a unit (good men!) but snagged a 1 fig arty on a hilltop. Leading 4-3 now. Again German Engineers went into a Wadi to kill of a stray infantry for a 5-3 lead, I could feel victory in my grasp. Docs firefight however took out a full Armor unit 3/5 dice and killed an infantry 3/3 dice. Staying at a distance and countering the firefight I reduce an infantry to 1 fig. Doc shot 2 dice at my 2 fig artillery for a desperate last medal but only hit 1 (pfieieieieiew Smile ) And I took out the lone figure for a very tense 6-5 win. Took over an hour and 58 turns of fun and tenseness.

Replay4
Going into this battle I only needed 1 medal to seal the overall match, so I wasn't worried. The Germans cam on and I tried to fight of Engineers in both wadis and destroy the armor units. On my right did not manage it and lost 1 infantry and got the Bunker emptied by enemy fire. On the left the sole surviving Engineer fled the Wadi. But had also reduced both german Armor units to 1 fig. With an Artillery Bombard advanced both my Artilleries forward on "red line hexes" and subsequently caught fire and got the both reduced to 1 fig, but also managed to take out both armor units. After that Doc advanced a wave of infantry up the centre supported by artillery and TFH and DFHQ and my troops perished before that. He took out 2 infantries (one I should've retreated Sad ) and took El Hatian to end in style. 6-2 for the doc in just under one hour and 42 turns.

As always a pleasure to play the Doc and this time I took the apple. Wink
