|Playing the "Brandenburgers" scenario in my new gaming room|
|Brandenburgers using the woods for cover|
It isn't worth doing an AAR on this game, since I was playing mostly to get used to the mechanics and experiment with how it plays. I made a bunch of dumb moves, from a combination of not realizing they were dumb before I made them and sometimes deliberately trying something to see how it'd play out. As a result, casualties were...excessive.

|The aftermath. The Germans won with twice as many VPs as the Soviets, but it was very bloody. Only a single stack of the elite German commandos survive.|
Otherwise all of the components are great. The rules definitely favor using sensible WW2 tactics. Things like wreck markers for vehicles and dropped support weapons add nicely to the game narrative.This is most definitely a fun system that will see a lot of play on my gaming table.
