5k Flames of War battle

Some photos of other people's work to tide us over until I can post my own stuff again.

Some friends were playing a 5000pt game of Flames of War over the holidays. I turned up to spectate, at least for the first part.

Part of the Soviet force - the Shermans are proxying for more T26's

The other half - all Fearless Veterans...

Half of the German force

Things get a bit Kursk-y
When I left, things were not going well for the Germans, having vastly underestimated the potency of the AT5 FP1+ bombardment guns. A lot of German armour went up in flames in the first turn, including the King Tiger.

I heard later that the game was called before the end of the day - the players had scheduled a second just in case. As the game setup was non-standard, they agreed that if such a game was repeated, there should be some thought put into using reserves rules in order to avoid the same thing happening again.
