Dust Warfare Batrep 300 Points Axis vs. SSU

When it rains, it pours, kinda.  I managed to get in a second game of Dust Warfare this week, and this time it was on a full sized gaming table.  Once again myself and my friend, in which this was his first time on a 6’x4′ table and to the Friendly Local Gaming Shop (Olympic Cards and Comics in Lacy, Washington, U.S.A.).  Once again I played the SSU and he played the Axis.
