This was my first game playing with a armored list, using a list from Overlord and the 11th armored list as a proxy for my 33 Armored Brigade.
I fielded a lot of unpainted mini's in this game, which is something I have been avoiding whenever possible. But I fancied changing things up a bit and seeing how I got on. The list consisted of (roughly):
Confident Trained Armor:
Command Troop (2 x Sherman I's)
2 x Troops (3 x Sherman I's, 1 x Firefly)
1 x Recce troop (3 x Daimler I's, 2 x Humber LRC's)
2 x Highland Division Infantry Platoons (in De-frocked priests)
1 x A/T platoon (4 x 6 pounder guns)
Priority air support.
Light cruiser artillery support (off table) - this was mainly to make up the points and I had a ground team spotter for them.
YD fielded his Confident Vet infantry, with 2 x 4 Panzer IV's and 1 x Tiger, Neb's and a few other bits and bobs.
Neither of these lists were strictly speaking accurate, but what the hell!
A brief synopsis of the game saw me advancing into contact and getting bogged down due to dug in Pak40's (again!). A few Shermans were lost without much forward movement, then the Tiger got involved and my Shermans started to pop all over the place. The game ended without me killing many units and with my infantry not even dismounting before I decided I would fall back and concede.

Result: Allied Defeat!
