|Modified Battle. The Soviets look to be in trouble.|
Ron laid out a table based on the Recce in Force scenario in Battle then we pitched four T34/85 against five PzrIVH. It was a fun little game that was over in 3 or 4 turns so we hauled out various Grant and Featherstone books and bent our minds to hex based infantry and artillery rules to match.
|But they win in the end.|
I started to reminisce about those fun, modified Memoir games from 3 and 4 years ago. It didn't take long for us to remember the issues we had meshing the card deck and 3 zone system with Grant scenarios nor did it take long to speculate about using our modified armour rules without the cards and sectors. (In this case the 85mm gun on the T34/85 would hit the PzrIV on an emblem as well as on the armour symbol.)
Essentially a Featherstonian type game where the players develop the plan and try to execute it in the face of the enemy while the dice help determine the success or failure of their plans.
|Modified Memoir: Everyone wins but technically the Soviets are about to win another close battle with a lucky shot at the critical point.|
Hopefully next week we can get a full all arms scenario in.
