This weeks game at the SESWC was a 1944 28mm Bolt Action Eastern Front game. Colin Jack provided most of the figures and the terrain. I contributed a platoon of inexperienced Soviet infantry. The terrain on the table was relatively open. A German force of a reinforced battalion supported by a Tiger, Panther, Jagdpanther and Panzer IV holding a line of isolated buildings was attacked by 2 Soviet platoons supported by 2 SU100s and 4 T34/85s.

It proved to be a German victory when 2 Soviet platoons were wiped out assaulting 2 of the buildings. Though we played multiple moves and there was much anti-tank fire only a SU100 and a Panther had been knocked out by the end of the game.

Sadly I was so busy playing the game and talking to people that I only managed to take these 2 photographs.
I also spent time this week adding a page to the blog giving details of my Russian Napoleonic army. I also revised the design of the blog by widening the main blog section and right hand lists.
