I meant to take plenty of pictures and create a great visual spectacle but I got heavily absorbed by the fighting and forgot. So here are a few snaps and a summary of our game.
The German deployment included both Infantry platoons and left the Pioneers in half tracks and the unemployable AA trucks in reserve.
The Soviets had their T70's (8), T34-85s (5) and Infantry batalon (19 stands inc attachments) in reserve.
The Infantry Platoon deployed far forward give up the possibility of an assault on the Soviet guns on turn 1 and proceed to lead the HMG and Infantry Batalon on a merry chase through the woods
This is the small infantry Batalon
Relocated to a commanding position the German infantry and the Nebelwerfer observer they find amongst the pine harass the Soviets in the valley below.
The large Soviet infantry batalon arrive from reserve and are met by the remaining tiger (other destroyed by 122mm barrage) the Panzergrenadiers and 2 out of the 3 pioneer half tracks (the other bailed by the same barrage). The Russians fire and assault but are thrown back and destroyed in a costly counter attack
