|Incoming! BOOM! Boom! Where did the supporting sappers go?
I took a mixed Tankovy Battalion from Hammer and Sickle,
HQ T-34 85 w/ Cupola
5 T-34 85s with Cupola
9 T-34 76s
3 IS-2 w/ Tanko
My first match was against Kris. He is a great guy and its nice to see him back in town after a stint with PP in Seattle. Scenario was Dust Up.
He was running a German Tank List
HQ was 2 Panzer 4 Hs
3 Panzer 4 hs
Min sized Panzer Grens
Mobile AA guns
and 3 Nebs
|Objectives (the Tigers are objectives) and Deployment. Germans bottom left, Soviets top right.
|Panzers and Panthers oh my!
|First round of shooting bails an IS-2.
|View down the road.
|2nd Turn the Germans are getting close to my first Objective.
|View from the turret!
|My reserves come on the left flank and double time it up to his rear objective. Oh boy did I just pull a fast one?
|So Dennis rolled his eyes when I suggested this table was the darkest in the room...really?
|Ah, that's better. Kris' PanzerGrens come on from reserves and encroach on my rear objective. MG fire and a two tank assault knock them below half. They fail morale and quit the board.
|Panthers make a push for the Tiger objective. I send in the boys as two burn on the bridge.
|Sneaky Mobilewagons make a play for the rear objective. But crossing the dangerous open ground proves too lethal. T-34s light them up with 2 hits each.
Germans - PanzerGrens, Mobilewagons, 2 Panthers, 1iC
Soviets - Sappers, T-34s
|Flank him! With the 1iC down, I need to just drop the lone Panther to claim a 4-3. I throw everything I have at him for a couple of turns and IS-2 finally does the job. With the 1iC down the Germans fail Co. Morale at the start of the next turn.
Played Bob in a I95 Domination scenario. He came all the way from Petawawa. He had a British Tank list with two batteries of Arty.
2 units of Cromwells
Tanks on both sides roll forward. Sappers are reduced to lone survivor. He passes his checks and heads to the rear.
|Soviet tanks move up with infantry. British Arty and MG fire cut the sappers down. T-34s move into the woods with their wide tracks and engage the Stuarts. They are countered by the Cromwells on the flanks.
|British Arty hiding behind the hill in the background.
|After being hit with barrages in the previous 2 turns the Is-2s get within 4 inchs of the central token.
|T-34 85s duke it out with Cromwells over the left most token.
|Top of turn 3 the Soviets have 11pts after the British armour failed to contest. Game called there with a 6-1 to the Soviets.
Played Dion? And it was a massacre against me. I didn't do anything right. JagdPanthers mixed with moving at the double T-34s was ugly. Sorry no photos...move along...
