D-Day to Berlin – Battle of Targul Frumos – Rumania 1944

I have a new post on my blog about the up coming Sourcebook for the Eastern Front. it will be called Bagration to Berlin.

Myself, Art F. and my friend Mark, aka the GamesPoet got together this week to playtest a battle of my new D-Day to Berlin Sourcebook called Bagration to Berlin.  This is the Eastern Front from Spring 1944 to the end of the war in 1945.


Of interesting note is that I took Russ Lockwood's advice used 12mm scale pieces for all of the MECH units and 15mm scale pieces for the INF and ART units.  We all thought it looked great for the scale of the game.

Primary object: Glass of house red.

I think the 12mm armor looks okay with infantry for this level of game.

Thank you sir, I think they work great as well.

The @GamesPoet brought the wine, cheese, salami and crackers. I just provided the troops :)

The wine was Grande Reserve de Gassac Rouge 2020, from the Languedoc region of France, and it's a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with a bit of Grenache and Syrah. It is more of a mid priced wine so to speak, if you can find it, and it goes good with beef or chicken flavored with herbs, mild sausage, and cheeses as well. We had it with the latter two items for snacking, including both cheddar and gouda cheese, along with crackers and pretzel. I'd say it was brambly, yet well rounded and smooth with plum, black cherry, hints of boysenberry, a wee bit of vanilla, and herbs.

And as Art F. said, the scenario combined with the rules seemed to give a good flavor to the history of the fighting that occurred near Targu Frumos in April and May of 1944. Every time I play these rules, it make me want to play them again, and for someone who isn't really into playing large scale fights like this one, I suppose that is saying something more positive than I'd expect.

Thanks for that. I'm a big fan of KISS Rommel and grid based games so I've picked up a copy of your rules.
