Yet another replay of Charles Grant's "Action at Twin Farms", this time in a Winter setting, late on Saturday afternoon against my arch-enemy Carlos.
Russians were defending the Twin Collective Farms with a Rifle Squad, Maxim Team, PTRD Team & 120mm Mortar. The Germans had 3 Grenadier squads with 2 x 251s + light truck as transport
Rules used were Disposable Heroes from Iron Ivan Games.
Scenario used 6 turns max. German objective to oust the Russians from the farms - Russian objective to avoid German Victory conditions.
We played the scenario twice over a period of 3 hours and switched sides - on both occasions the Russians were victorious.
We plan to game the scenario again shortly, with some tweaks. There were also some reindeer hiding out in the forest, but they were passive observers to the action and wisely stayed well out of the way
I "inherited" this tank, along with quite a few other 20mm gems, from a member of our wargame club, Alberto Beneitez, when he moved away a couple of years back.
It's a Fujimi 1/76 kit and has made a few appearances in various games, and in its day it valiently played the part of Michael Wittman, merrily blasting holes in the British 7th Armoured Division's tanks.
