2015-04-18(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Jeff Wasserman British winThe british absolutely need to get the first roadblock removed ASAP, the third turn is the absolute minimum in order for the AC and carriers to sweep past it, because the timetable is very tight on this one. Riders are a necessity. It's a difficult scenario for the british forces and the inofficial errata provided by the designer is absolutely necessary. Very good scenario btw.
2015-01-26(D) X von Marwitz vs Martin Mayers Japanese winA British/Gurkha force needs to eliminate two roadblocks or all Japanese GO MMC around them. They are supported by three armored cars, that have truck type MP expenditure and one tracked Carrier. This means, that most of these vehicles will be very slow offroad. And the British don't have much time to lose in this one. Not any time, to be more precise. They can try to flank the Japanese position on either side, so the Japanese should keep that in mind. I played the Japanese defenders in this one. My plan was to fight a fall-back defence while trying not to let my infantry be OVR or VBM freezed, at least not to make that easy. I guarded both flanks with HIP units and deployed my force in a way, that I could quickly reinforce either flank while holding on to the first roadblock for a while. In our game, the British basically has ALL infantry move up the flanks roughly evenly distributed and have only the ACs / Carriers enter in the center. I was lucky that the British stepped into just every trap I had laid AND that I was able to deal some damage. One HIP HS managed to pin a stack, survive retaliatory fire of just about half the British infantry force and then still be a pain in the second British MPh by "being in the way" and placing RFP around. The other HIP HS rolled Snakes when a sneaky Gurkha squad moved in OG next to it ADJACENT. Most importantly, the British was unfortunate enough to advance with both of his Sapper/DC equipped crews into a patch of jungle Bore Sighted by my MTR, in LOS of my INF-Gun pointing the right direction, and my 9-1 led MMG. I killed both during Japanese PFPh Turn 2. This was followed by a 6-1 attack yielding some sort of MC vs. two British 457s, one of which broke, while the other rolled boxcars for fate & ELR. At that point, the Japanese had lost only one of the originally HIP'ed HS in CC while the British had lost 2 Sapper crews with both DCs in Jungle very unpleasantly acquired by Japanese weaponry, 1.5 further squad equivalents and another 2.5 squad equivalents broken. At that point, my opponent conceded, because it was already becoming apparent, that the British would have a very tough job to fulfill the VC in time.
2015-01-10(A) Raoul Duke vs JB Japanese winVery tight scenario. I lost because I failed to completely understand some of the subtleties of the VCs. Had a lot of fun though! Also, the first time I've ever had the pleasure of using a Set DC in an ASL game.
2014-07-08(A) Andy Beaton vs Jeff Wasserman Japanese winLost my nerve charging across a road unsupported, and that put me enough behind schedule to lose the game, which is very tight.
