This past Sunday we started a Bagration Flames of War campaign at the club, so I thought I would put up a battle report and a few pictures of the other games. I played my Sturm Kompanie against some Russian Tanks and Cavalry in counter attack.
We played in the dark corner which is a bit less crowded, but not great for pictures!
Set up to defend one objective with infantry, and guns. Hoping to defend the other with the reserves.
Russian tanks grind forward shooting, killing both guns, not sure why I put them front and center! Meanwhile the cossacks hang right, you can kind of see them in the back.
I just hunkered down to wait for the reserves, hoping not to take to many losses, but that is allot of dug in infantry to kill anyway. Lucky for me the Russian rockets did not range in.
My rockets came in from reserve and made the cassocks think twice about advancing. They failed a motivation test to unpin, turned out that mounted troops get a bonus and they would have past but didn't realize that until the end.
The grind continues, but I started to swing my machine guns out to the other objective.
A small unit of Russian tanks headed off to get the rockets and the objective, but my 3 Hornisee came in from reserve on a blitz and made short work of them.
The Russians in turn were now forced to turn up the heat. Circling in and starting to assault. The first try was pushed back by panzerfausts, and the one tank platoon was getting low on numbers, but I still had another platoon. They now had to run back thou!
Trading kills a bit back and forth. I actually assaulted with the remains of my platoon by the rock and got a kill and a capture somehow, leaving the one stubborn commander. But things looking grim for my HQ platoon.
Managed to move my infantry back, but they are not dug in sadly. Hoping to stall for time some my tank destroyers can kill off the tanks.
But the Russian rockets get in the game and lay down a smoke barrage, also the plane comes on and kills 2 of the hornisse leaving the last to run! Not good.
The tanks get the rest of my infantry, and consolidate the objective for a win on turn 8, with quite allot of cassocks coming!
Writing this it seems like I may have lost by moving that second infantry platoon out to soon. Also should havce deployed the guns in the woods, but oh well mistakes are made sometimes! Our side did alright campaign wise winning 2 attacks and loosing 4 defensive battles.
Here are a few quick shots of the other games:
