Witches' Cauldron - Deployment.

 Optimal deployment for Witches' Cauldron?

Following my comments on Jamie's blog I've added a picture of what I think is a good deployment strategy for the defender in Witches' cauldron. Jamie and I have played this mission twice but each time the defender has lost quickly before reserves arrived. Both times the defender got swamped by a strelk blob.

In the above game Jamie deployed pioniers, stugs and grenadiers in the big forest and had Pak 40s in immediate ambush. Not having thought about the mission much, neither of us had considered the best deployment strategy for the defender. By putting his units inside the forest it allowed the attacker to deploy near the objectives.

Keep the attacker back by deploying on the edge of your deployment zone.
