Fall SP AWI game

I had a hankering to get my Fall foliage out for a game so came up with a AWI scenario for Sharp Practice. It was similar to the rescue scenario but was going to be turned around and was an attempt to capture a rebel leader by the Jagers. This was another game played via texting with friends in the ...

Re: Naval Combat?

PT Dockyard has a huge range of 1/600 vessels. Most of my Baltic ships are from there.

Re: Naval Combat?

I second Coastal Patrol as a great, fun game for WWII small boat actions. It works quite well as a solo game and I've run a couple during the pandemic via texting and pics. You can use Cruel Seas minis for a rule set that makes sense too.

Re: Kirkenes Petsamo CoC game

It will be. More of a series of games with the Germans on the defense, and the Soviets able to push a new platoon in when needed.
It is certainly a bit different than my New Guinea and Burma tables.

Kirkenes Petsamo CoC game

It was so nice to get an in person game in. Jess and I played a CoC game on his back deck with my 15mm stuff. It was a Probe game set in the Kirkenes Petsamo campaign of 1944. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic and weather likely turning, it will probably be the last game there this year. Anyone els...

Re: 6mm Northern shoulder of Kursk IABSM game

I have had a few folks asking how a tank heavy game of IABSM plays so thought I would run a tanks only scenario It requires a lot of dice rolling, so doing this via texting meant that the players had to be ready to respond quickly. It did take longer, but any game played remotely is going to be slow...

6mm Northern shoulder of Kursk IABSM game

The latest remote texting game was a bit of a disappointment. I was in the mood for a tank bash and I try to do a Kursk game every July-pushed back a month due to C19 and I just got around to editing the pics. It was based on the lopsided engagement in the area between Step' and Hill 227.9 on the mo...

IABSM's Canadian VC in 6mm

The latest remote viewing and text game was from the IABSM rule book. Scenario 4, A Canadian VC. This game is based on the August 19, 1944 Canadian advance into St Lambert where the Allies are trying to plug the Falaise Gap. Normandy games look nice but with terrain like this you really have to send...

pt 2 FJ defense of Wulkow 4/45

We played this one remotely back in June and I just got around to editing the pics. 2 new players from the 1st game, but it picks up as the 2nd wave of Soviets are attacking. Jess is now the FJ player and Sheridan the Soviet. The defenders are down 28 out of 76 men, both Paks are gone, 1 MMG gone, a...
