How to win with Italians?komura wrote:@Justin @Job
Firstly, thank you for organizing this big event.
I've enjoyed three games even my Italian lost.
@Stu @Dave @ Mike
Thank you for gaming or chating me at this event.
All three game lost due to Italian army morale special
rule, I guess.
Could anyone let me know how to win the game by Italian?
First of all, I don't think there was anything particularly bad about your list. I'd probably change your tank as the 1-man Turret rule is pretty bad for any army, but even worse with your lower morale. Everything else is similar to all of the other armies.
If you are using the national rules, use all of them. Build/buy some walls to use the defences you have access to, just in case you are the defender.
I guess the main thing you have to look at is where you can pick up easy kills, to try and keep the number of dead units on both sides fairly equal. For example, try to target weaker units, or ones which have no cover as a priority over large, dug in units. At the same time, you need to encourage the enemy to target your larger units rather than your own small teams. Place your weapons teams in good positions with cover and a clear field of fire, then play aggressively with your large rifle units. Push them forward in support of each other, hugging cover if possible and make the enemy deal with them. If one unit looks like it is likely to break, go Down to increase the to hit penalty and keep them alive longer.
I'm not sure that the Italians will ever be an easy army to win with, but that's how I would play them.
