|Panzer IVs move forward on German right flank|
I adapted the scenario for the forces that myself, Colin Jack and Bart Zynda could provide. Colin and Ian who was visiting for the first time commanded the German attackers - the appropriately named Kampfgruppe Collin and Bart commanded the Soviet forces. I umpired.
|Early and rare Soviet success as a Panther explodes|
Bart had a tank Brigade and its tank riders on the table at the start and was quickly reinforced by a rifle battalion and another tank brigade. Bart deployed his initial forces on his right flank. Colin split his attacking forces with the Panzer IVs and Panzer grenadiers on his right wing and the Panthers supported by a King Tiger and Stug III on the left.
|Panzer IVs lead advance past Mokre....|
When we ended the game none of the Soviet tanks were operational and they had only knocked out the initial Panther and a Sd251 75mm support vehicle.
|End game - a mass of destroyed and damaged armour....|
|BF109 flys over mounting Soviet disaster|
This weeks game was a 28mm Winter War scenario that Colin devised using the Triumph and Tragedy Rules.
|Soviet troops parade before action - Za Stalina!!!|
|Urrah Tovarischii - the advance begins.....|
|Finns observe the dark Soviet masses....|
