Somewhere on the Eastern Front...

The troops don't get out much (bit like their owner) but this weekend was the first battle in the new garage.

Went for a  Flames of War straightforward battle on a plain. It had to be straightforward as I hadn't actually played the game for four years and then only once (despite the large armies that have been accrued). The opponents were a Russian Tankovy versus a German Panzers force both weighing in at around 1800 points.

The Russians had the initiative and were nominally on the attack. 11 T-34s assaulted a position held by 5 Panthers.

 And the result was well...

Having had a starter of T-34 the Panthers moved on to a main of SU152 and finishing off with some SU 100s before heading for the Soviet artillery park.

The Russians had some success. The 88s were taken out by an accurate rocket bombardment and the 2 supporting Tiger Is didn't last against the SU 100s.

But it was a pretty one sided affair.


  1. Cool looking tanks, were they airbrushed???
