I had been wanting to get my 2D6wargaming 6mm Soviet Naval troops on the table for awhile so this scenario was designed around that thought. The game was based on the fighting in north Caucasus in August 1942. The Germans were closing in on the port of Novorossiysk from the north and the Soviets had set up blocking positions before Verkhnebakanskiy. This represents the 83rd Naval Infantry Brigade's fallback spot after getting push backed from an area further east. They were facing the 125th Inf Div with some StuGs and armored cars.

Great looking table, models & game ! Looks like the T-26s didn't do well …

They did not. Not as well trained as the Germans. A couple of non penetrating hits tend to cause them to bail.

Excellent looking game on an unusual subject, Mark! I always look forward to seeing your AARs and what sort of scenario and terrain you are doing next.

I have some sample 2D6 Russian Naval infantry sent by my friend, Robert Fellows. I have not painted these yet but they look pretty decent overall.

Yes, that would be historically accurate generally … too bad for the T-26 crews … ☠
