Last week saw the annual "All Day Bash" by the Chuckadice group. For once we were all in attendance, with 6 players and plans for a game of Big CoC. The scenario was a meeting of forces in 1941, with the Germans advancing on Moscow while the Russians launched a counter attack. The Germans, consisting of Oberst Panjo(CinC), Oberstleutenant Colin and Major Jason, had 2 infantry platoons(Panjo and Colin), aided by a mixed Panzer platoon of 3 PzIII and 2 PzII(yours truly). Support units consisted of a pair of Sd222 armoured cars, a Stug, HMG team, 37mm Pak gun, engineer flamethrower team, an AT rifle and motorcycle squad. The Russians, Polkovnik Nathan(CinC) with Majors Zob and Andy, had 2 rifle platoons(Zob and Andy) and an assault platoon with SMGs and flamethrowers(Nathan). They were supported by 2 (yes, 2!) T-35s, 2 T-26s, 3 Comissars, 3 HMGs and 3 AT rifles.
The table set up, the German's are coming from the left and the Russian horde will be sweeping in from the right. The terrain was fairly open, with the crops giving cover to infantry but not blocking line of sight. Wooden buildings and the woods also gave light cover, the only heavy cover was the ruined industrial complex.
It was a cracking game though, everybody said they had enjoyed it and we all had a laugh throughout the entire game. After packing it all away and having some nibbles we then went on to play a quick game of Zombicide before calling it a day and heading home.
Thanks to Zob for hosting us all again, Nathan for helping provide the figures and scenery for the game and Panjo and Andy for playing in the spirit it was intended.
That's all folks, I am off to chill and annoy the wife. Happy New Year to you all.
