|German King Tigers lead counter attack (not exactly as depicted)|
|Panzer Grenadiers and Mark IV-H - models from Battlefront|
|King Tiger platoon - models from Battlefront. This would be terrifying...in most games.....|
|Russian forces prepare to try and block the German advance - models from Old Glory and Plastic Soldier Company|
|Germans would have to enter from the left side of the photo, and get all the way across to exit from the right side (across the bridge)|
One other modification - the sheer number of Russian units/vehicles may have made the game difficult, so we applied a kind of "hen and chicks" rule to the Russian tanks, making them operate in platoons. If the platoon was to fire, all tanks would have to try and hit the same target.
|T-34/76s move up into the village|
|"I'll just race through the village - what could go wrong?"|
|T-34/85s enter from the flank - note the pin markers starting to accumulate on the Tiger in the village...|
|King Tiger hammers away at T-34/76s|
|T-34/85s arrive with tank riders for support|
|T-34/85s advance over a bridge|
|Now THAT is how you take out a King Tiger! Double sixes on two penetration rolls...|
|Panzer grenadiers capture a building in the village|
|Russian infantry continues to attack|
|Crumps show the withering fire endured by the T-34/85s as they approached the village|
|Russian go after a German squad that got a little too close...|
|T-34/85s hammer the village|
|This King Tiger broke down during the advance...to add insult to injury, the T-34/85s later knocked it out!|
|This King Tiger ALSO broke down during the advance|
|Immobilized and burning King Tigers|
|The final turn - lots of wrecked tanks, but the German advance had been stopped|
Thanks again to Dallas for hosting. I can't wait to play Bolt Action again.
Meanwhile, I expect Dallas will burn those dice...
