    Another game from last month. This was the April 16 attack up Reichstrasse 1 by 74th Gds Rifle Rgt to the slope in front of Seelow. There were a lot of Soviet units involved in the game but were understrength. Each Russian player had a weak company of 2 2-section platoons with 2 MMG teams. There was also a Engineer platoon of 2 sections and 2 additional MMGs and a FO for some 82mm mortars. They were promised armor support but that was hung up in traffic and didn’t arrive for 5 turns of the ‘Time’ card. Since there wasn’t a lot of anything but sitting and exchanging shots, I took the Germans. I had some elements of the 76th Pzgrd Rgt. 2 platoons of 2 sections each and 2 MMG teams and 2 PaK40s I also had a FO for 2 tubes of 82mm mortars. A company of Volkstrumm was in entrenchments on the heights.

    Mark, your terrain and games have been a decades’-long inspiration to me. May I make a plea for you to write a book, show-casing them and your methods? It would be a treasure for the hobby and you have most of the material already!

    We get slapped around, but we have a good time!

    Thanks for that but I don’t have the time to do all the gaming I would like.  Let alone travel, family, etc.  But I will keep posting.

    Do you have to join flickr in order to see the photos?  All I get is a landing page.  And Volkstrumm?

    I’m not a member of flickr and I go straight to ‘Attack on the Seelow Heights’ with 27 photos.

    I’m on a laptop running Windows 10, Chrome browser.

    That may be very annoying – sorry, not trying to sound smug, but the link works.

    The link works for me, it goes to the landing page, the usual do you accept cookies pop-up then the photos.

    Gorgeous terrain by the way!
