|German Infantry cover the entrance to an enclosure, while their|
half track gets a wheel replacement (suppression!). 1/72 Plastic Soldier Company and Armorfast.
A new part of the rules for me was artillery, I used a Forward Artillery Officer and used on call off table Concentration fire (rather than barrage) and it all seemed to go okay and was easy to calculate and sort out.
Again I used a low force point, home brew scenario. This time the Soviets had to try and capture an out of town iron foundry. The attacking force was late T34/76 based, with SU 152 support and off board artillery. The defenders were a mix of infantry and StuG III's.
It all ran smoothly and some of the processes are now becoming second nature.
|Soviet infantry liberate the Iron Foundry. These are 28mm Warlord |
figures and the building is an HO/OO plastic kit with a chimney
that seems to rise up forever - I love storing this stuff!!!
I like the 1/72, but when the 28mm are placed next to them, I like their character more! but again, table size makes the 1/72 a more practical choice, not so much from a unit footprint perspective, but rather the overall presence and bulk of the 28mm scale just makes the distance scaling of 1/72 on the smaller table look more reasonable to the eye.
The rules continue to please me.
