The temps here in Georgia have felt like 100 degrees plus so I though I'd cool off with a winter game. This one is inspired by German attempts to relieve Budapest in January 1945. 6mm minis and TFL's I Ain't Been Shot Mum rules. Link to the flickr site and the full AAR.

Excellent layout, as you always do, Mark! I love the whitewashed vehicles and snow covered fields.

That's beautiful and looks very real!

Thanks. I mentioned in one of the pics of Tiger IIs, that these were the very first GHQ models I bought over 40 years ago. They really looked sad with their lack of detail. So I tarted them up and whitewashed them to help hide their issues, I was happy to see them back out after such a long hiatus.

I agree that the pics are very evocative. Good job.

That actually looks cold! Nice looking game, your AARs are always great to see. Thanks.

How do you handle tank damage with 6mm vehicles? I don't see any markers (for example, engine damage).

I do have some tiny markers that we can put next to the vehicles, but we also have roster sheets to record damage.
