Makis Axis – Morris Allies AAR

Post by makiskrassas » Mon Mar 23, 2015 1:17 pm

Makis Axis – Morris Allies AAR
Image
Standard settings, Makis is Axis and Morris is Allies. As an Axis player I will try to conquer Holland, Poland, Norway, Denmark in 1939. Then capture Belgium in 1-2 turns in the spring. France should fall by July 1940.
Turn 2. I capture Holland with 3 ground units (1 mech)
Turn 3. I tried to be in position to attack Denmark and Norway and finish Poland but weather had other plans… Morris brought all his Fleet in order to prevent me… for now he succeeds. The Polish make me pay for trying to capture them with less units and no air support.



Turn 4. No sea weather for invasion. The UK sub is killing my troops!!! At least I capture Poland. All my air units in Hamburg trying to damage the Allies Fleet. No fun for now for me 

Image[/img]


Turn 5. I decided to go for Norway in the winter. Brave or stupid we will see… the sub is still damaging me, only one troop deploys to Norway for now. Still fighting with Allies navy.

After uploading an image to Photobucket there's a link in the right of the screen that you need to copy and paste to use in forums, it's got [img] tags around it.

Turn 31. This game is already very difficult for Axis. So what should I do? A 1941 Sea Lion!!! I moved most of my planes in France, gather my subs to east England and send to sea 5 units(1 mech).

Turn 33. Getting ready for Greece. Repairs for my air units. Killed a UK infantry in Norway.
Turn 34. Capture Bergen. Next turn I will attack Greece.
Turn 35. Started the attack to Greece. Getting ready for the air battle against England and France. Destroyed a GAR in Norway.

Definitely an unorthodox game. I don't recall reading any AARs here that featured such intensive fighting in the Norwegian theater.

yes, I did never meet any player who consider Norway as so important ! :) But this Norway is too expensive for Axis.

I always thought Norway was Important (no partisans, 3 harbors especially Bergen, only 3 GAR to guard), but this was my most difficult Norwegian campaign ever! It was expensive for both Axis and UK I must add!!! :P

Turn 46. Tobruk captured. A huge Allies convoy is near UK. I decided not to Attack it, just trap the near UK harbors with my subs. The air fight continue over Dover.

Image

Turn 47. Last upgrades for East front. Heavy loses to my Luftwafe in France. Axis tried to ambush Allied convoys but only DD made contact.
Turn 48. The Soviets enter war, things are getting serious for Axis. My Barbarosa is very weak. I will try to capture Riga on the North and secure my defense behind. The naval battle around Ireland is getting difficult for me. Too many allied ships, maybe I must bring the Italians Navy to help.

Image

Turn 49. The Allies tried to distract Axis with a small invasion in France. Axis wolf-subs continue to destroy convoys. Captured Riga and Vilna, probably won’t go further.

Image

Turn 50. The South East front has been formed, one slight problem near Bucharest but I will try and fix it. Axis will not advance further in Russia. In France Morris did not invade as expected.

Turn 52. I closed the gap in the South East with German INF. Trying to form o dabble defense line with the Soviets. I do not have time, soon the will flutter the front. In the West my subs continue to sink convoys trying to avoid contact with Allies ships. Alexandria captured.
Turn 53. Things are not getting well with Soviets. They will soon Attack the whole front. All my reserves moved to the East except France.

Image

Turn 54. The Soviets attacked north, but I managed to counter attack and secure my 2 unit defense line. Morris send some troop Convoys in Baltic and France.
Turn 55. Allies land in France. I decide to use all my Axis Navy to damage the Allies. Destroyed a DD, my subs are approaching. Railed my last INF and GAR reserves to France.

Turn 56. The Allies aborted their mission in France. Winter is coming and I will have a difficult time with the Soviets.
Turn 57. I made a big mistake leaving Hague unguarded. The Allies send a PARA and capture it. Captured Damascus with an Italian GAR.

Image

Turn 58. Alexandria captured. Port said is Axis now. The Allies have 2 INF in Hague. I will try to contain them there.
Turn 59. Mud everywhere. Things stay stable. At least I have control of North Atlantic.
