The Battle of Narwa - 1944

Yesterday we fought a Rapid Fire Scenario on the eastern front. My wargaming friend played the part of the mighty Soviet Union.
The battle was taken from the rapid fire supplement of eastern front scenarios 1941 to 1945.

The ground was covered in snow, and this affected the movement of vehicles and troops.

The general table layout
The Soviet forces started behind a railway embankment and had to place a tank platoon and an infantry company on the road at top end of this photograph.
The Soviet player had to achieve this objective in 10 moves.
Meanwhile the German defender (me), had a scratch force of units to defend the table, which included two platoons of tigers. One platoon was on the table at the start, the second platoon arrived as reinforcements after a D 10 roll.

Are preplotted artillery bombardment soon put paid to my plans.

The Russian tank units advance quickly, or as quickly as possible in the snow, towards the objective.

Imagi-Nations

I have a small modern imagi-nations project on the go. Featuring two countries, Albian, and the People's Democratic Republic. They are vying for control over another country called Utopia.
Utopia was split by a previous war into two separate states, North Utopia which is under the influence of the People's Democratic Republic, and South Utopia, which is in the sphere of Albians influence.
This will be the focus of my modern micro armour and ships and aircraft. I will be using Modern Spearhead and Shipwreck rules.
In the meantime, the Albian football season kicked off with a big game between Albian City and Midchester United.
