Soviet Bear Resurgence Part 5

Completed my Soviet snipers that came with the Udarny Strelkovy boxed set.

Snipers had their rules revamped in V3 which improved their utility rates but with a limited deployment capability. At 50 points per sniper, it's a tad too expensive and you can just pin/kill infantry stands.

But I painted as an added insurance if I need to have a grunt match with another infantry list.

Soviet Bear Resurgence Part 4

Completed a platoon of Soviet HMG last weekend as I chat up with an old friend who came by to my home till the wee hours of the night (or was it morning?)

As I was reading up on the standard issues HMG during WW2, I'm quite bemused by the long long Russian names given to these weapons.

Soviet Bear Resurgence Part 3

Completed the Second platoon of my Udarny Strelkovy company about two weeks ago but can't just find the time to update my blog about it.

My surge in focus to paint up my Soviet army had been good so far and I hope to have more of them painted up.

I had decided to upgrade the four squads in both platoons as SMG squads to give the useful additional dice to assault up their enemies.

Soviet Bear Resurgence Part 2

Managed to complete my PTRD / PTRS AT rifle section for my Udarny Strelkovy HQ.
It's still a mystery to me for an army that utilized the Katyusha rockets, the Soviets did not create a similar anti-tank capability.

Panzerkompanie (Grey Wolf) VS Soviet Heavy Assault Gun (Red Bear) [PROLOGUE STORY]

For those who have read my Battle Report :

Panzerkompanie (Grey Wolf) VS Soviet Heavy Assault Gun (Red Bear)

I have decided to write a prologue to the battle report as per below. I hope some readers will enjoy this!

Location: Somewhere in Belorussia
Date: Mid July 1944

Obergefreiter Hans was despondent, most of the news they had been receiving through the radio network were of desparation and despair. Units were surrounded and destroyed by the gigantic Soviet armored offensive that had opened up in June 1944.Vitebsk, Orsha, Mogilev and Bobruysk had fallen to the Soviets and the Wehrmacht was still trying to cobble up effective defense. And now Hans had heard that Soviet tanks were seen approaching Minsk despite desperate German resistance.

Blood Guts & Glory Reviewed! ~ WWPD: Your Source For All Things Flames of War!

The guys from WWPD had received their Blood, Guts & Glory book.

It's a good review which illustrates tons of USA goodies available!

It sure makes any American Players salivate! And German players sweat since there's now US tanks that can penetrate the valuable Panthers.

Now the King Tigers looks awfully tempting as a security net!

Have fun reading the review!

Soviet Bear Resurgence!

Had a spurt of determination to paint up and complete the rest of my Udarny Strelkovy company set.

Some pics of the first platoon. I still need to complete the second platoon and the AT rifle section.
