His scenario has the well-trained German Wehrmacht verses some Russians. Apparently lots of militia/poorly trained troops as it turned out. With attacking victory conditions.....
DaveMcN in his style, seems to 'wing it' and so this version was due to be a debacle for the Russians in the game, so will no doubt not be that for the convention (he paints all these 15mm Russians you see....). Thus I will produce any no spoilers here.
|early war panzers, small yet still proving to be a match for the Russian equipment of the time.|
|Kev's panzer grenadiers [2nd battalion I guess without the valued half-tracks] de-trucking and advancing.|
|The sort of confused fighting you get as truck mounted infantry issue a joint attack against each other!|
For once, the "Dice Ace" Francis, did rather poorly in the dice rolling department and I with the superior Wehrmacht types had the upper hand against his rather poor early war Russian tanks and equipment. I rolled along - despite rolling four 1's in a roll ...on a d10 mind you! - eventually hunting down his brigade commander who had abandoned his armoured car and ran into some woods!
|Yup, that is the Russian brigade commander "in" his vehicle. I decided it was my mission to kill the bugger. Accomplished.|
The usual rule
|The 15mm action in full swing.|
Quote of the Night:
Russian player: "I really don't have any gun to take out the panzers"
DaveMcN.: "Yet.... it is still being built in Leningrad"
Welcome to fighting Germans in 1941!
