Bat rep!

Been a while! Me and Lydia moved into a new apartment, and are finally mostly settled in, though we are still waiting for our couch to arrive.

Tonight me and Tom had an East Front, LW battle. The reports follows after the break.

From now on this blog will only be for hobby-related stuff. Everything personal has moved here: It's goofy. Enjoy the batrep! It's a little bland, since the battle wound up being fairly one sided, but it was just nice to get a game in again.

MISSION: Free For All
2000 pts

15x KV-85s
Strelkovy blob

HQ: 2x Panthers
3x Panthers
4x Panzer IV Hs
Gepanzerte Panzergrenadier Platoon
1x King Tiger

This was a fairly straightforward battle, and the photographs should speak for themselves. The King Tiger and 2iC Panther held the left flank, while the remaining Panthers and gepanzerte panzergrenadiers held the right flank. The Russians made a valiant push on the right flank, but ultimately the KV-85s just weren't heavy enough to handle the Panthers.

In the end, the Russians suffered extreme losses. Their Strelkovy made a last ditch assault that was repulsed by small arms fire, combined with the MGs on the German tanks.
