Grabow Feb 45 6mm IABSM game

Post by mluther »

Inspired by issue 184 of After the Battle magazine, I decided to do a late war game based on actions in one of the Oder Bridgeheads in Feb, 1945. It allowed me to try some loaded-for-bear SS foot units and was a change of pace from the Normandy kick I was on.
The Soviet 49th Gds Tank Brigade (with T34/85s) drove the SS Fallschirmjaegers out of Grabow on Feb 5. But when the Kampfgruppe Schwedt defenders received reinforcements-2 batteries of Sturmgeschutz-Brigade 210 and Fallschirm-PanzerJagd-Bataillion 54 So along with units already in the bridgehead, SS Jagdverband Mitte, SS Fallschirmjaeger Btn 600 and the snipers of SS Scharfschutzen-Zug, the Germans counterattacked on Feb 7.
So many long words, so many automatic weapons.

:lol:

But a truly beautiful table at that scale - nicely captures the bleakness of the landscape, the season and the bloody end of the long war on the eastern front!

It was a nice change of pace from the Normandy games. I really like the way IABSM works with 6mm.
