The Germans were going to struggle to deal with the KVs- just as they did in the real world and it is nice to see the Germans wincing for a change.
Mission as encounter, as with FFA we added a 3rd objective to each side to stop a "rugby scrum" from enveloping and it works well with multiplayer games.
This battle represented the start of Operation Winterstorm with the 6th panzer running into advanced elements of a Soviet tank corps (2nd?). The ground counted as frozen snow so standard cross-country rules applied and the Germans got a bonus of limited stuka support.
Turn 1. Ian advances his T34s in a bold flanking move that wrongfoots the Axis players.
Turn 2 the T34 assault up onto a wooded hill but being conscripts miss almost all the Germans who slink back into the woods.
Victory to the Soviets
A fun game that was a real nailbiter. the extra objectives ensured that the players had to spread their forces and both sides had real chances of winning it.
An exciting action and report! I like the photograhy, too: you capture the gloom of winter very well with those pictures. Just the thing!ReplyDelete
Thanks Ion, it was a fun and close game- which is the way I prefer it really.ReplyDelete
