    Winter Offensive 2019 under way

    The Dolanator went down to a lung infection just prior to WO, so no Dinant last weekend. Wish the big lug well!

    DTF-4 Death To Fascism

    I love the pregame mindgames this scenario generates - the possibility of a Russian .50 upstairs definitely shapes the Romanian setup, and the Russian can use that to his advantage - don't buy it, let the Romanian assume you did, and build for an attack against a defense that isn't keyed on the...

    AAR - About His Shadowy Sides - BoF4

    For the opening setup the Germans need to set up well back, with the lightest possible screen forward. Anything up front greeting the Soviets will be lost, so don't overdo it.

    2018 Albany NY State ASL Championship AAR

    Thanks, Peter. Sadly, no DTF this weekend - a couple were my first choices but things didn't line up. I was especially looking forward to AK '44, which looks really interesting. Fortunately I got to play three of them at ASLOK and hope to play them all soon!

    Steve used them to keep track of people's wins - each skull and crossbones is a victory.

    ALL THINGS ALBANY 2018...2016 and 2017 carryover registrants

    Sorry you couldn't make it, Whit - really good list this year. Thank you Steve and Joe for a great weekend, and thank you to my opponents, who remained chill and fun even when the dice were not on their side. I like the current location - friendly staff, decent breakfast, and a lot of solid...

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 5: Retaking Kharkov

    2, 4, whatever, all I remember is a 3KIA at the hands of a squad that should have been DEAD or TIED UP IN MELEE! It's really just a question of proper maintenance. However, I need to talk to my boys about keeping the breech lubricated and the barrel free of debris. Yeah, that was a hoot -...

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 5: Retaking Kharkov

    Agreed, and that APCR TK# is no joke, especially at close range - the Tigers have to show it a little respect.

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 4: Forest Brothers

    Amazingly, we had no Booby Trap results - I was boxing my morale checks but sailing through my PTCs.

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 5: Retaking Kharkov

    Brian, it popped up on the second to last turn in 49C9 and didn't do much. We talked about it after and agreed if you put it on the back side of the factory it should be in C10 where it has a non-HD shot at D10. D10 is hulldown to the three locations in the back of the factory and therefore a...

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 4: Forest Brothers

    Ouch! I hear ya - I diced for sides throughout and ended up with the favored side each time, even in the one I lost. As the NKVD, I never felt short of bodies, even though Phil was breaking my guys left and right and I was shooting a few myself for good measure. After our game, I believe they...

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 5: Retaking Kharkov

    From D5.341 (Recall): A bogged/immobilized Recalled AFV must be Abandoned instead; its crew is no longer obliged to leave the board, but may not re-crew that AFV. Surprised me too - I thought repair rolls were essentially freebies once you lost a track.

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 5: Retaking Kharkov

    I obviously enjoyed it more than you did but I agree, it's typical SP run 'n gun. I don't think I ever Prep'd with more than a couple units any given turn.

    2018 Winter Offensive, Round 5: Retaking Kharkov

    Despite my early stumble, I was still in good shape in the main event and next faced Bill Cirillo for what amounted to a semifinal for the coveted WO title. We decided to try something new to both of us, with combined arms on both sides, and this SP title fit the bill. Opponent Bill Cirillo...
