  2. Thx. I will check it out.
  3. Soviets facing fully-kitted out panzergrenadiers is a tough problem, if the Soviet gamer is trying to craft an all-comers list. Did not try Hero Tank Bn, but 3 tanks in a regular sov tk company does not work.

  7. THU, 17 JAN I will bring WWII Mid-War Soviets: 80 and 109 point lists. Terrain will be Eastern Front. Mission could be "Dust Up"
  8. During this session of our Team Yankee battles, we will try out a variant of the Team Yankee rules - fighting in a Nuclear Battlefield. There is a great video where Phil Yates and guys at Beasts of War discuss this: Team Yankee Leopard Week - What About The Nukes? This theme (and others) is listed in our main Team Yankee Saturday events thread: Team Yankee Saturdays at Guardian Games
  9. Note that this event is open to all interested gamers: people who have never played Flames of War - - - if you've played WH 40k, the basic rules of Flames of War are similar to 40k peeps who have used v3 Flames of War rules, but are curious about version 4 or "4th edition" veterans of v4 who want to push plastic, roll dice and make their opponents sweat Never "too old" to play with tanks

  14. THUR, JAN 10. Played 2 Soviet forces (2 generals: ZEKE and barca) vs. Germans (1 General: phyfor88), in City terrain. phyfor88 tried out his awesome MDF damaged city buildings on a dense terrain battlefield. IMPRESSIVE! SOV: 109 pts, ZEKE, Lend-lease force =Churchills, Valentines and Universal carriers and recon SOV: 109 pts, barca, Infantry force, artillery, 1 Platoon of KV-1, a pair of SU-152 Germans: 218 points, phyfor88, Panzer grenadiers, Nebelwefers, PaK-40, 10.5 cm howitzers, Panthers and Pz IV (late), Stukas Mission: Rearguard Outcome: Decisive German victory. Comments: Soviet: Churchills are a small/fragile formation on Eastern Front Soviet: Infantry in the attack need to take the fastest route possible to their assault positions Soviet: SU-152 only worth their points in blasting infantry out of buildings Soviet: battle plan needs to be fast, simple and direct, not subtle nor slow. German panzer grenadiers put out a lot of fire power. German: The command card from Ghost Panzers that allows the force/formation commander to be a super observer placed the nebelwerfer salvo template anywhere. German: Panthers and Pz IV both gave a good accounting of themselves when handled well, but can be wasted if handled badly. German: High points lists obviously favor the Panthers. They are expensive Dense urban terrain requires different tactics than most other battlefields, and practice to get better at it.
