Hi All

Me and Dale had our first unsupervised game of BG today then Reese also took over for a game.

We decided to just do a 250 point game from Kursk

I had

HQ in gaz, infantry platoon, 3 T34, 45mm ATG, sniper, BA-10 and horse and cart supply team. Three trucks played the parts of the Gaz and horses as we are busy using up excess FOW figs.

Dale ad HQ in kublewagen, platoon, MMG, 80mm mortars off board, pak-40 and AT grenades

Table was set up thusly, we had not realised how important scouting was any my BA-10 and sniper had a great time for 4 turns with no one else on board and gave Germans 3 chits before they even came on the table. One for out scout and two for objectives captured. I was also expecting to face tanks so brought some of my own

Few turns in and infantry and tanks advance now the Pak40 has been taken out by the BA-10

Germans in the wood near the two corn fields tried to charge a t34 with AT grenades but did not manage it

Russian infantry runs between two hills sure they can hear incoming artillery my sniper on the hill continues to exchange fire with the MMG in the corn field

T34 decides MMG’s are better than HE

Infantry scatter as Germans finally start to fight back

Germans had picked up too many chits and broke.  Good game we possibly got a few things wrong but seemed to keep it rolling.

 

Game 2 Reese took on Dale with same lists, this time 4 objectives and again with Russia winning the scout phase Germans already had a few chits

WP_20180805_13_15_46_Pro.jpg

Germans got by far better rolls for reserves and activation and started to get the best of the Russians. The BA-10 took a Pak 40 shell to the face.

Sniper took up position and proceeded to miss everyone

Kubelwagen broke down

WP_20180805_13_24_10_Pro.jpg

With all the Russians on the table Dales mortars had a good few turns putting pins on and Reese ended up taking three chits over three turns to unpin so artillery really played a part in this game

WP_20180805_13_29_00_Pro.jpg

Pak-40 had re positioned and the T34’s crept up along the hills trying to get into a good position

WP_20180805_13_37_18_Pro.jpg

T34’s climbed the hills and all missed the Pak

WP_20180805_13_43_56_Pro.jpg

Pak hit a T34 and we misread and thought it was 1D6 to try to pen. Actually managed to equal and immobilise which then made the crew run off. We then ready it should have been 2D6 pen so would probably have been same result of T34 dying anyway so no harm done.

WP_20180805_14_09_26_Pro.jpg

Mainly due to mortars the Soviets were close to their 21 break point. The plane refused to come on

WP_20180805_14_29_11_Pro.jpg

After a T34 managed to kill the Pak the tanks started to roll forward

WP_20180805_14_40_36_Pro.jpg

But it was all over as combination of rally chits and dead unit chits racked up a victory for the Germans

Two good games, love the look of it in 15mm on a 6×4

Def going to play more

Hi All

Got my Orcs finished so now have a DBA Mongol force made up of LH/Wolf Riders and Cav/Boar Riders

Got to stick on a little more basing material but wanted to get em posted up before I forget.

Then another camp, for my Medieval Types and HOTT. Nothing new just an aquarium piece that I sprayed black and repainted then added on some foliage to give it a little texture

Hope the enemies don’t find the rear cave under the castle

Ready for next month is a Gargant, I picked up loads of Orks for Epic and the Gargant was among them. By loads I mean a C*@P load of them. After playing my first game with it I dropped it and every component part came apart. Such is the robustness of Ork construction though it also all went back together so I decided it deserved a re paint. Soviet Green maybe.

“Don’t cross the Streams!” Terrain mash time in galaxies far far away….

There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.

Big Paul has been knocking together terrain from coke cans and belly button fluff since he could walk.  Terrain is a massive part of the gaming experience in Paul’s eyes, and in his words ‘if the board looks right your game’s gonna be 10 times more enjoyable and memorable’.
