With Dr U-S's arrival it was time for some gaming. but first some finishing touches.
And so it was on to the first game, Russians vs the US in the mid 1970's. The good doctor discovers that setting up to defend is not as easy as it looks. However my tactical and dice skills handed him a victory. He did attempt to steal defeat (his regimental artillery rolled 7 ones for its first 12 dice).

The second game was the debut of my WW2 Russian cavalry division. 100 stands strong under the scenario system. Cracking along at 9" and ignoring terrain, they were into the Germans surprisingly fast
|Turn 2. Yee Haaaaa|
The terrain squares worked really well, with the second board setup providing different tactical challenges to the first.
That's a whole bunch of cavalry! Good looking games and the boards are very nice.ReplyDelete
So how did the Russian cavalry go? Did they die in droves or sweep all before them?ReplyDelete
Reports now posted on my blog too...Delete
A mixture. Once I get to grips with when to dismount them it should be scary.ReplyDelete
As expected there is a good number of Soviet stands. I've looked a few times at a standard Soviet Infantry Division 1944 TO&E. Still other Soviets to paint first.Delete
Great games chaps, what are the octagonal bases in the 1970's game?ReplyDelete
