Citizen, behold a squad of our mighty soldiers escorting a fine example of Soviet modern engineering and made by your own Proletariat hands.
|Small dice indicate possible enemy forces to be drawn from a card deck. Mythic would determine whether or not an enemy force revealed itself on any given turn.|
See how your brave comrades advance fearlessly despite the threat of the nefarious Barbarians of Fascism!
Like rot in the grain stores, the Nazi-snake takes much effort to flush out! But the effort was made with the greatest sacrifice of our Defenders of the Motherland!
Anti-tank fire erupts to the North, machine gun fire to the South East
The Germans have no anti-tank weapons left, and are unable to close with the well armored Soviet workhorse.
Rules used: Disposable Heroes/Coffin for Seven Brothers (with card draw activation)
Russia - 1 T-34, 1 Rifle Squad (2 sections, one of Sergeant + 5 Privates, and 1 LMG section with Corporal, gunner and Private with Rifle).
German - A deck of 10 cards was set up, 3 of which were blank. The remainder varied from LMG team, panzerfaust team, up to a rifle section.
Scenario objective: Russians (me) - Escort the tank off the opposite corner. Germans - stop them.
Although the Russian T-34 made it off the table, they lost 9 men to the German 6. So, a victory but another Pyrrhic one at that.
This was primarily to test the feasibility of using a single squad with DHC7B. I found it worked much better than I thought. The idea came about as I considered experimenting with G.A.S.L.I.G.H.T. for WWII.
