My cunning plan didn't come to much unfortunately. Richard had also opted for some long range artillery. On the very first turn of the game our artillery fired and managed to simultaneously blow each other to bits.
After that things swung my way. Though my T-34 tank took a hit it only resulted in the tank stalling and I managed to blow up his panzer in response. Then it was on to troop shuffling across a very wide field of fire. Finally managed to deal with his machine guns and panzerfaust before parking my tank directly on the obstacle.
Victory for the Allies. So 20 points for the next game to Richard's 10. Currently wondering about points selection. Tempted to blow most of the points on a Lockheed P-38 Lightning for some solid air support. Its either that or a scout car and some more troops.
