Campaigning on the Ostfront

Over the last couple of days my son and I have deployed our 1941 Soviets and Germans for a series of challenging Spearhead games. In both games the Germans have been restricted to relatively small but well motivated formations. In contrast the Soviets have fielded numerically larger formations which have been significantly hamstrung by defensive requirements and completely inflexible command and control.

The games were both generated with the Scenario Generation System and to the German commanders relief both battles found the Germans on the offensive. I remain nervous of facing a massive Soviet counter-attack!

Brief reports of both games can be found on my Spearhead blog. The first looks at the Soviet Pocket around Dzhelishay while the second action focuses on the Defence of Zahvizdya. Both involve reinforced brigade actions with all models in 6mm.
