CDN NATIONALS Pics Galore


Fort-Ception.. Fortifications on a table that has a Fort...

Friday night Team Yankee mayhem: Here
Army glamour shots here
My Day 1 games Day 2 here

And now its just a picture dump of the rest of the battles, taken in between games.   With 46 players and such a wide array of nationalities (I didn't even know the Dutch had a list!!) it makes for something different than the usual games of Germans vs US/British that LW turns into.  Enjoy

CDN NATIONALS, Day 2


 Game 1, Andrew B, Brit Matilda Co.   He had 2 command Matildas, platoon of Matildas, 2 infantry platoons and some recce carriers.  As we were both Tank companies, I had to attack.   As I have nothing except the gun-trucks which can scratch the paint on the Matildas, it would be an uphill battle.  I torched a reserve platoon of infantry, and got the recce carriers down to 1 vehicle left but their MGs had killed both gun-trucks.   No way of harming him, couldnt stop him contesting, 2-5 loss.
 His Brit infantry were in the tall grass
I didnt take any further shots as I was futilely trying to get some platoon kills... His Matilda list was the rock to my scissors!

Game2 vs Andrew Dobson (I played all 3 Andrews...) Pincer, he was playing Finns with fortifications

CDN NATIONALS: Day 1

Game 1  Free for all vs Kurt R, Japanese: 1 large infantry group with banner, 5 tanks, 3 sets of guns, 1 infantryno banner.  He night attacked, and moved up and hunkered down,knowing I had too many MG shots for him to assault.   I didn't want to just sitzkrieg, so foolishly moved up  He clipped some Fearless Conscript tanks and also got my coastal gun-trucks.. my mistake there.. and then realizing we would just trade shots I knew I had to try and take out a platoon.  Only thing not dug in was his Tanks, so I killed them all but 1, but with Rgmt Banner nearby, auto passed his platoon check.   1-6 loss for me, though I wanted to say I have assaulted Japanese, and did so on the short flank.
 Kurt moves up at night to these hedges

CDN NATIONALS Early War: The Armies


Canadian Nationals, the armies. I took so many pics (for once, I usually forget) that I figured I'd put all the armies in one post, and post my games tomorrow.   We had a great first day, 46 players total this year.  Let's see how close I was to my over/under of 9 for number of Japanese armies from yesterdays post:   

Start off with Bob McBride's beach bum Japanese

Bob always has nice stuff.  here we see his excellent gun team camo netting.

CDN NATIONALS: Friday Night Fight, Massive Team Yankee Game!

Only part-way through deployment, Soviet side
 In what I hope is a tradition going forward, Rob K organized a big Team Yankee game Friday before the tourny by using 4 of the Tourney tables pushed together, plus our TY scenery.    Rob "I dunno, I think maybe 24 feet by 8 is too much"

The other part of the room, tables ready for battle
