The SkirmishCampaigns scenario books use a system designed to keep players guessing about exactly what each fight is about, and to keep the scenarios from getting stale when replayed. Each player receives a base force (armor and infantry), plus a randomly selected attachment.

Surplus figures from Black Tree's Soviet Character Set were composed in this vignette by Friar Barb's Painting Monastery

For this scenario, our Soviet base force will be:

  • a platoon of three T-34 medium tanks (unit has already taken losses due to air interdiction and/or mechanical breakdown)
  • one T-28 heavy tank
  • a political section (commissar and two riflemen)
  • two motorized rifle squads, each consisting of:
    • a squad leader
    • a two-man LMG team
    • a grenadier and assistant
    • seven riflemen
    • a truck

The Soviet player will also receive one of the following, selected randomly:

  • a platoon of three BT-7 light tanks (35% chance)
  • a platoon of two BA-10 armored cars (25% chance)
  • a 45mm Model 1938 Anti-Tank Gun, plus truck and crew (20% chance)
  • a platoon of two KV-1 heavy tanks (20% chance)

28mm BA-10 Armored Cars

In Planning

We're not aware of a manufacturer of these in 28mm scale, but we understand the model is currently in development.

28mm BT-7 Tanks

In Planning

Not yet acquired.

Completed

We have the models from Army Group North, painted by miscmini Supporting Member of TMP Fezian.

Completed

Force of Arms is the only manufacturer in this scale for the 45mm anti-tank gun, an essential weapon for Barbarosa-period Russian Front gaming. The first painting service dropped the ball (and lost our model), but Pigmented Miniatures came through for us.

Completed

Black Tree's Soviet Character Set I looked like a good source for interesting figures. Friar Barb of Friar Barb's Painting Monastery painted the set for us.

Completed

28mm Soviet Trucks

In Planning

We've not yet found a manufacturer for Soviet trucks in this scale yet.
