|Steven's Strelkovy||Sean's Finns|
The board. Finns in the center. Objectives are next to both swamps. Both Strelkovy companies are to the left. Guns and T-26s to the right.
NOTE: because we played this game literally minutes after tearing through Rising Sun, we missed the part about Sissi platoons not being able to launch an assault the turn they arrived. Considering Sean's HMG ambush was almost useless, we're okay to let this one slide!
After the charge into contact, Sean surveys the battlefield and decides to call it.
Wow! What an insane steamroller of a game. The Soviets were just an unstoppable horde! Sean and I did a solid post-mortem to figure out what he did wrong, and came up with a few points.
*His guns should've turned far sooner. They would've neutralized my T-26s pretty effectively.
*Killing my Strelkovy was going to be tough, so he should've tried to make himself unassaultable. Combat attaching the HMGs and just staying gone to ground would've helped. This would be dependent on knocking out my 76s and tanks. Sissi could've probably handled the guns, and Sean's guns could've handled the tanks.
I didn't do anything particularly clever with the Soviets- just pointed them at the enemy and went in! But this was a tough mission for Sean to be sure. Still, it was quite the spectacle! I hope you enjoyed it.
