Game 11 Play Test 7th September
The German C-in-C failed to take any infantry or recon units with his Tiger Company and their movement was slowed when they came within the British ‘Dummy’ blinds' 6” area of ‘influence’ They were unable to reveal the British blind so they could not use strategic movement and because they were an armoured unit with no friendly infantry, they could only move at speed two (Tigers are slow so this restricted their movement to 2” per move).
Game 12 Play Test 11th September
In the Russian recon phase they spot the German armoured battalion in the centre of the table but fail to get any artillery or air support. In the movement phase the Russians bring on their mobile units. One blind moves up their right flank and another moves behind the hill on their left to support their recon unit that is holding the objective. In the centre their medium tank battalion moves onto the table to face the German armoured units. The mounted infantry move up the road on their right to cover their line of communication.
At the end of the game both sides had suffers 20% casualties (48 Russian / 28 German) but the Germans had taken all three of their objectives giving them +40 points. The Russians held 30 points of objectives but had lost a 20 point objective so only had a net +10 points. So at the end of the Game the Germans won 120pts to 90.
