This was a quick and simple game based on the last ditch effort to relieve Velikiye Luki on Jan 9, 1943. I use the Toofatlardies' I Ain't Been Shot Mum rules and I wanted to try adding Command Cards to the deck ala Sharp Practice (Sharpening Up IABSM) to see if that would give the players a bit more control over their 'plans'. This scenario seemed like a good one to experiment with, especially since I was the defending-pretty well immobilized player. Attacking Germans had 5 Command Cards in the deck and the Soviets 4.
Overall I liked the addition of the Command Cards, unfortunately having new players involved didn't really provide a lot of feedback.

Another extraordinary AAR. Your games are an art form, at the very least.

I am quite impressed by the scenarios you create. This game is no exception. The figures and models are always superb. And the terrain is extraordinary. It appears to be everything I would want from miniatures wargaming. But then nothing new there, eh?

I do have one question, if you would be so kind. To create your winter games you have a selection of winter kit and terrain. You have described for me (and others) in the past how you create your winter game mat and some of the winter infantry stands, and paint your winter white-washed vehicles. But it appears you also often sprinkle some white flocking/powder onto some structures and figure bases that might also see summer service. Do I read this correctly? What do you use as your snow "scatter" in these cases, and does it come off after the battle without too much fuss?

Inquiring minds want to know…

Thanks for the comments, Mark. I use Woodland Scenics scatter. They have a white snow and I have a canister of brown and leftover winter games scatter
Most of the vehicles have a winter whitewash. Figures are mainly H&R winter troops. I could use some more winter figures actually.
