I was in the mood to do an East Front game and hadn't gotten my Pz38ts and multitudes of T26s out lately so went with a table inspired by actions with the 7th Panzer and 3rd Mech Corp in Lithuania early in Operation Barbarossa.
Almost all armor for this game-Well, 1941 standards for armor at any rate. I Ain't Been Shot Mum rules

That does look fantastic, especially for a micro-armor game.

Are the scenario details (OBs, map) published anywhere? It's been too long for my Pz38s as well.

Not from a published scenario, but if you click on the pics you will see the AAR and forces.

Nice looking table, but where is the infantry?

Ponder on,

Hard to spot, but you can see some here for example:

I think so people just wanna make noise and aren't worth replying to with their obvious lack of observation.

Another excellent looking game, Mark! It looks like fun.

Mark 123 May 2022 6:07 p.m. PST

Mark L you never disappoint!

I think this is perhaps the largest battle I've seen you post. At least the largest battle using IABSM.

Really a tremendous battle report. I will want to re-read it a dozen times. So much to see … to absorb.

Stunning stuff. Many tanks for posting.

(aka: Mk 1)

Thanks guys. I think that one might have had the greatest proportion of abandoned to destroyed tanks I've seen in a game.
