This was one of the most exciting games of FoW in a long time. The initiative swayed too and forth right up until the end, until the Germans eventually landed the knock out blow.

The stars of the show were some German 7.5cm infantry guns that held up the Soviet surge for several turns, knocking out a couple of T34s (with rear shots) and a few BA10s in the process. The knock out blow was delivered by the PzIIs when they arrived from reserve and shredded the Russian infantry holding the objective.

It was also nice to see the Germans uniformly kitted out in feldgrau, rather than the late war dunkelgelb.

That's an excellent-looking game!

I liked your Race To Rangoon presentation shown on the blog too.

Thanks for the heads-up here, and link to these sharp actions.

Great looking game table and miniatures. Painting the piping on the shoulder boards of a 15mm figure is a step beyond! 7.5cm infantry guns taking out T-34s must feel really satisfying! Cheers!
