Meanwhile I ran my Corrivalry A list:
82nd Airborne Parachute Company (Overlord) 1420pts
HQ - Company Command and 2iC Carbine Teams, and 3 Bazooka Teams (attached 1 to the big Parachute platoon and 2 to the Small Parachute Platoon)
Parachute Platoon (Command, M2 60mm Light Mortar, 1 Bazooka and 9 Rifle/MG Teams)
Parachute Platoon (Command, M2 60mm Light Mortar, 1 Bazooka and 6 Rifle/MG Teams)
Parachute Mortar Platoon (Command and 4 M1 81mm Light Mortar)
Parachute Recon Platoon with 4 50. cal Recon Jeeps
899th Veteran Tank Destroyer platoon with 4 M10 + Security Section (2 M20 and 1 .50 cal Recon Jeep)
Glider Anti-Tank Gun Platoon (Command, 3 M1 57mm gun, and 2 Bazooka teams)
Corrivalry allows an A and B list with 450pts of variation between the two. My B list merely swaps the Anti-tank guns for 4 .50 cal AA guns. This is aimed at trackless infantry lists where No HE would be a big impediment and also often feature Air for tank busting/artillery spotting.
The mission rolled was Hold the Line, Mark was the attacker. As we were both US, this was obviously a training exercise being carried out prior to combat (True in both senses!).
We had a chat after the game and decided that the tank assault was reckless and they would have been better providing supporting fire for the infantry. Loosing them allowed me to decimate the infantry in my next turn, if the tanks had been there. I would have had some difficult targeting decisions and likely would have been overwhelmed when they assaulted, especially as my first reserve waited until turn 5 to appear. Meanwhile I deployed my mortars in a poor positions, where they couldn't keep up the suppressing fire, without giving the platoon away, I need to hide them away more! Lessons learnt all round I think!
