Great report and showed the same points I realized since the Bootcamp. But one thing: “The US played moved out, killed only one and then failed his “shoot and scoot” move!” did you played it really that way? If yes… well that’s not how “shoot and scoot” works. You can’t “shoot and scoot” after you [...]
@oriskany A lot of the Soviet force is borrowed. My goal is to do a reinforced tank battalion but I am trying to purchase and paint as I go. I will be getting the Soviet VDV company from Armies’ Army this month so that is a company plus BMDs, 3 ASU 85s, 3 Nonas, and 3 [...]
It’s always kind of cool to hear people who have had the real training & experience play games like this.
(of course it’d be even better if you could find an ex-soviet commander )
The Soviet left closed on the town but the presence of the Dragons, an ITV and a tank made any assault through the narrow gap difficult. The Frogfoot flight and the tank company took out two of the remaining three M1s but there was still enough AT capability to stop the assault cold. I only [...]
The ground assault continued apace, and the main effort switched to the left. The American platoon in the forward town continued to take losses but not enough to open that flank up. There was one tank left there at the end of the game, and with the shoot and scoot rule, mobile enough to not [...]
The gallant pilots of the Soviet Air Force had a superlative day. I think there was only one turn I failed to bring air in. The US Air, however, came in on one turn only – *one*. It must have been happy hour at the O’Club. The first strike came in the rear against the [...]
The Scout Platoon enters the board to find the enemy. This was a 4 vehicle platoon of BMPs. (Again, we are trying to force real doctrine onto the game.) The scouts ran into the first tank platoon deployed in the small town and came under fire, losing two of their number. The next turn they [...]
This is a series of pictures from my second game of Team Yankee. A friend of mine and I got together and tried out a much smaller game where he had an armor heavy team against a Soviet tank battalion. The table is six by 12 foot table at GAJO Games that is a very [...]
Frogfoot squadron moves into the attack. Urra! My reinforcements of two tank companies attempt to push the Americans out of the woods to the right and my Hinds come in against the M1s in the open. Carnage on the left. General commentary: 1) the game plays fast and the rules are brutal, 2) helicopters came [...]
