We agreed on 50 points each but I only got 36 points
because I was short in figures but I gave Andreas some advantage. Andreas went for a setup that was very aggressive and made for rapid advance with a sherman-tank and all the troops mounted in two APC´s. The only slow force was his heavy infantry.
I had troops dug in and one tank and my medium
mortar.My big advantage was that the russians in SoTR is very good at camouflage. This meant that I could shot at my opponent and he couldn´t strike back from a distance. The game was very bloody
and I really like to play the russians because of all the antitank-rifles and the mortar.
One nice thing was that I used my only tank very aggressive and after knocking out Andreas only tank with one of my antitank-rifle I then rammed one of his APC and halted his advance.
In the middle I also pounded his troops and APC´s with mortar fire and I got lucky with the dices several times.It ended with a russian victory after throwing
handgrenades over a ruined wall on the british
The game was fun to play and very intense but also very even. I am really looking forward playing this again.
