I had been wanting to get my 2D6wargaming 6mm Soviet Naval troops on the table for awhile so this scenario was designed around that thought. The game was based on the fighting in north Caucasus in August 1942. The Germans were closing in on the port of Novorossiysk from the north and the Soviets had set up blocking positions before Verkhnebakanskiy. This represents the 83rd Naval Infantry Brigade’s fallback spot after getting push backed from an area further east. They were facing the 125th Inf Div with some StuGs and armored cars.

Another gorgeous game, Mark! How long does it take you to prepare a table like that?

About an hour. I do the base layout at the house with the pastels and hills to figure out where things go and then it takes a half hour or less to set up at the shop. Thanks.27/10/2021 at 17:13 #163904McKinstryParticipant
As always, a simply gorgeous game. The hobby is almost by definition a very visual and tactile one otherwise computer games would satisfy the purely gaming part and these games really make it attractive beyond anything on a flat screen.
