Looks like I am going through a Dust Warfare craze at the moment. Organised another game on Monday to play with Ahmad. We chose to play 150AP instead of escalating it to 200AP. I still think I need more games in before I jump into the higher point levels without fully understanding the entire ruleset.
|Ahmad selected the above for his army. A diverse and nimble army.|
|This is my army albeit still unpainted. I will be working on them soon. Still learning more about painting tanks.|
|Abdullah could choose deployment so went for the other end leaving me with the graveyard. Deployed most of my heavy units closer to the enemy with the second line comprising Infantry 2 units.|
|Abdullah on the other side|
|During the First Turn I used all my command actions to get my entire army forward.|
|Abdullah on the other had hugged terrain really closely.|
|I gambled by sending my units out into the open to engage his retreating unit called the BBQ Squad. In hindsight this was a bad move...|
|Leaving me with very little choice, I started retreating my units, bringing my Command Squad into range of both the walker and my unit of Heavy Flak Grenadiers to attempt to heal and repair.|
|With a diminished Axis army and seeing me on the run, Abdullah picked up the courage and moved out of cover...all Hard Cover mind you.|
|While I kept my retreat, Abdullah kept pushing forwards. I felt he should have just retreated now that he was 1 point up on me.|
|Surrounding me from the treeline, Abdullah moved up his BBQ squad to flame my Command Unit. This was supported by his light Walker.|
Lessons learnt: ALWAYS USE TERRAIN. With a longer range, I could have just hung back and shelled him with my tank while he had to advance to get in range (allies has shorter range).
Still a good game and I am liking this game even more! Go on give it a try!
