After playing the first game it was time for Lauren to leave for yoga, which left me to my devices for 2 hours. I decided to play myself in a massive armor game pitting the forces of the Das Reich against a Soviet Armor Brigade. Below are some snapshots of this quickie.
A Couple of Marders advancing towards a good spot for an ambush
Here are the soviets about to advance across the river. They have been ordered to protect the hard won ground and bridge so they built a PAK front.
Some of the Waffen SS moving over a ploughed field awaiting the main armor push through the line before they are deployed to clear the PAK front.
Here is a shot of the soviets readying their forces to engage the Invading Germans
Some Panzers crossing the field to engage in battle
Two StuH42s sneak around the flanks to assault the PAK front before the Soviet AT guns wreak havoc on the German armor
More shots of the Soviet Armor Advancing
A Pic of a Zis 2 AT gun ready to halt the onslaught of German Armor
A couple of Opel Blitzes follow the armor with panzer grenadiers to help clear the front
The Proud Schwere company of two tigers and a Ferdinand/Elephant initiate the main thrust in the panzerkiel
I did not capture any other pics of the engagement to share, but the Germans were defeated handily by the nearly 3-1 ratio of armor. The Germans did not go down without a fight a destroyed 15 Soviet tanks before their eventual defeat.
