Pete hosted a WW2 20mm game to run through the Battle Group rules as the last couple of times not all the chaps got to play it. So he kindly hired our normal Conwy Wargames Club venue for the afternoon. He'd asked me to provide some Soviets and Dave some scenery and Germans and Pete sorted the rest.
It was also the first time Pete and I had tried the new version of the Battle Group rules, and we wanted to try run through the rules thoroughly to help the less experienced players.
Gaz asked for a game with lots of tanks and enthusiasm resulted in a great looking big game. Not always the best to run through new rules, but fun none the less.
Pete supplied both side with a written up brief with objectives and special rules. The short version the Soviets are attacking with the aim to cross the river. The Germans need to hold them until the reinforcements can arrive.
|Soviets ready to go|
|Barrage can't miss|
|Vital Soviet bridging equipment|
|The river defended with too few troops in the German opinion|
|Break while we check the rules|
|German reinforcements arrive|
|Not a lot of Soviet tanks have been knocked out|
|It's a long way to the river on foot|
|The bridging column is still intact|
|Soviets finally pinning the German defences|
|German reinforcements inch closer|
|Another break to check the aircraft rules|
|The Soviets just get to the river before home time|
|Last round and another break as we check the rules. Great looking game, handicapped by megalomania and a smaller set up would probably suited us better to learn the rules and get stuck.|
