|Micks buildings - Sarissa Precision|
Micks list was all veterans:
2nd Lieutenant with 2 men, one squad of 10 Infantry with 2 SMG, 2 Assault Rifles, 1 LMG, 1 PanzerFaust and 5 Rifles, one squad of 10 Infantry with 2 SMG, 3 Assault Rifles, 1 LMG, 1 PanzerFaust and 4 Rifles, one MG-42 and one 8cm Mortar with spotter.
I used a regular list of:
2nd Lieutenant with 2 men, Forward Observer with 1 man, three sections each of 1 SMG, 1 LMG and 8 Rifles, Light Mortar, Vickers MMG and Recce Carrier.

Committing some reserves I was winning the firefight in the village, but Mick threw a super rally roll on his squad with 6 pins and was soon back in the fight. On turn six my flanking squad was very close to the German base and only had a single pin, but against the odds the first two dice out of the bag were German, another two pins on my unit, and they fluffed their move onto the objective - a Draw!
Mick certainly enjoyed the game and is keen to have another go. Maybe it's time for a small Bolt Action campaign or league at the club.
