2019-03-23(D) Andy Beaton vs Richard Hooks Russian winIt was a close fight until a lone German squad failed to find a panzerfaust allowing the last SU-85 to get behind the German tank destroyers and knock them off with successive APCR shots. This freed up the squads held in bypass freeze allowing the massacre of the remaining German troops.
2015-02-16(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Mario Aceto German win
2014-12-13(D) Gordon Jupp vs Jeremy Shields Russian winInteresting game...I got lucky with my AT gun placement when on turn 1 one of the JgPz V came and sat adjacent to it with a flank exposed...It was disposed of in short time. That put Jeremy on the back foot and he never recovered.
2014-06-21(D) Jeff T vs Bruce Billet Russian winGame 3 of the BCHW mini-tournament. We diced and Bruce got the attacking Germans. Unfortunately, we also got a superstorm as the weather played a huge factor, increasing the heavy falling snow hindrance to +3. That made it a point blank game as most shots were between +4 and +6, even with leaders. Bruce pushed and had me in a tough spot on the hill after winning a crucial 1-1 CC (5-5 with each having a 4fp squad and leader). But the next turn his JagPz on the hill broke it's main gun and I turned the tables winning another 1-1 CC. My reinforcements were able to get in unmolested due to the weather and they swarmed up the hill to secure the win. I'd like to play this again when it isn't a full blizzard.
2014-02-22(D) Fred Ingram vs Mike Reed German win
