Battle 1954

Post by rhys » Sat Jun 02, 2018 5:36 pm

Verkhopenoye scenario from RF Eastern front replayed as Cold War 50's style. Close run battle. RF rules.
Soviets having it all their own way with some very lucky dice rolls to hit and not be hit by the Brits. Pushed from top right entry point down the right flank and down the middle road. Got stopped on the road. Shifted units across to reinforce the right flank attack which was going well. Brits reeled to their right to take the soviet attack in the flank and tried a dash up the left to take them in the rear but the shooting wasn't good enough - almost worked but not enough to force a morale check halt to the Soviet advance. Brits then Deployed their reserve to protect the road junction as the Soviets continued down the right. Soviet artillery and air support and he fire from tanks pushed the Brit inf back and ingnoring their right flank the Soviets took the crossroads. A really great game that at times swung back and forth and could have gone either way. A close run thing.

Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes in the wind, and sometimes against it, but sail we must, and not drift nor lie at anchor.

Really nice.
I'm super tempted to start modelling this period but in 10 or 6mm - there are so many cool options with WW2 and post-war kit and you are representing them well.
