  1. Day Three 19 October, German Assault, Moderate, Overcast, Heavy Wind at start. German Reinforcements: Sturm 4:Coy, Pz IIIL pltn, OBA: Btln MTR 80+mm. Total German OB ELR: 4, SAN: 2 15 Leaders, 5 Pz IIIL 46 Sq-Eq (31 Elite, 15 1st/2nd Line), 21 SWs (6 MMG, 6 LMG, ATR, Lt MTR, 7 DC). Russian Reinforcements: OBA: Lt Arty 70+mm, Gds Rifle 1:Coy (Reserve), Militia 2:Coy, Fortifications 40FPP. Total Russian OB ELR: 3, SAN: 4 16 Leaders, 4 Guns (2 AT 45mm & 2 MTR 82mm) 83.5 Sq-Eq (7 Crews, 13.5 Elite, 33.5 1st Line, 33 Conscripts), 17 SWs (4 MMG, 5 LMG, 4 ATR, 4 Lt MTR). AFTERMATH (6 Game Turns): The Germans planned to attack along the railway embankments and to grind their way into the factory halls, and hold the line - in sight of the Volga. A heavy rain started to fall quite early in the battle. The Russians were slaughtered in the buildings adjacent to the railway tracks, and often went berserk in vain attempts to stop the Sturm Coy with support of Pz IIIL pltn. In the factory the going were more tough, but the relentless attack led by experienced German leaders forced the Russians to retreat, and the Germans followed deeper into the halls. In the Volga sector, the Russians launched their own attack in the area and eliminated several German outposts, until they reached the north most factory, although the attack had been costly. German Casualties: 2 Ldr, 10 Sq-eq, 6 SWs, 1 AFV. Russian Casualties: 1 Ldr, 30.5 Sq-eq, 3 SWs, 2 Guns.

  3. Finns bara en utgåva av Red Factories, du åsyftar nog på "gamla" utgåvan av Red Barricades boxen, men det finns knappt något värde - gamla brickor/regler, kartan kan vara värd liten slant, finns många att tillgå nu, om den skulle efterfrågas.

    A18.12 CCPh: Anytime a MMC attacking in CC rolls an Original 2 DR, the player makes an immediate dr on the Leader Creation Table. If this results in the creation of a leader, that leader must add his leadership to the Original 2 CC DR that created him (even if the modifier is a +1), and possibly changing its odds due to his one Inherent FP. Eftersom regel: A18.12 allows the creation of leader when a MMC rolls an Original 2 CC DR, don´t think that a MMC attacking with a SMC can create a leader in this manner – play by what the rules specifically allow in this rule. Notera även: A11.5 ...No more than two units may combine into a single CC attack vs a vehicle and one of the units in a combined stack must be a SMC... Liknade Regel, när det som står gäller. D10.42 PUSHING: ” tillåter att ett Wreck knuffas ”bort/åt sidan” ej att burning Wreck kan knuffas bort. Flera jänkare hävdade när vi diskuterade denna regel att termen ”wreck” gäller även ”a burning wreck” förstår ej hur de kan dra den slutsatsen, såsom regel är skriven.

AFTERMATH (7 Game Turns): A dual attack occurs in the factory complex and Volga area, the Russians hammer the German positions with two artillery modules, mostly in the area between the Volga and the largest factory hall and HMG fired upon the Germans. The Germans start to retreat from their forward positions or eleminated and lose ground to the Russian assault, that suffer heavy casualties but continue to grind their way forward. Yet again the Stukas act as work horses and punish reckless movement, but the Russians are too many and make progress anyhow and manage to capture and spike German Infantry Guns. In the Bread Factory area, the Germans launch an attack and call in a Neblwerfer Rocket strike that cause havoc and set the whole blast area on fire. The Germans encounter the wire-line and a panzer grind and flatten one wire section, while a Sturm squad blown up another wire section to bits with a placed DC. The Russians are shocked by the relentless pressure and try everything to halt and slow down the German assault, but are eliminated in the same pace as the fire spreads in the bakery buildings. A costly affair suffered by both sides today, although the Germans are very satisfied with the terrain taken in the Bread factory area. German Casualties: 5 Ldr, 15.5 Sq-eq, 6 SWs, 3 Guns.

AFTERMATH (7 Game Turns): The Germans started today's battle with calling in two artillery modules of Battalion MTR 80+mm. Several artillery strikes in the factory halls cause several casualties and break up whole defensive formations that the German foot soldiers are quick to exploit. After many days of vicious battle, the largest factory hall has fallen and is now in complete German control. Another factory 500m south have also fallen to the German assault. The Chemist Shop is subjected to a new attack by the Germans. They have brought forward a battery of INF guns that with accurate firing (they know every window and vision slits by now) cause havoc among the Russian defenders of the fortified building. Finally, the building is successfully stormed by the German troops, all Russians have been exterminated except for a Ldr and a squad. That escaped via sewer movement and spent the rest of the day in the sewer system. In the Bread Factory area, the Russian launch an attack to reclaim wooden buildings/rubble west of the railway embankments. The few Germans unit in the area try to retreat, but too late and are trapped and eliminated. The Russians push on with the attack even harder northwards along the tracks, but several Stukas appear and destroyed 20 Russian soldiers, and halt the progress. German Casualties: 5 Ldr, 9 Sq-eq, 4 SWs. Russian Casualties: 8 Ldr, 29.5 Sq-eq, 4 SWs, 2 AFVs.

AFTERMATH (8 Game Turns): The Russian's defensive positions have been stretched out, and hopefully the line can be held in decent shape. Of course, the Germans push the assault to its limits (8 Turns). With the help of experienced Assault Engineers entering the scene, and into the factory halls. Totally clear out one factory hall and get a hard grip on the largest hall. Several buildings east of the railway embankments, fall into German hands during the battle as the Russians are routed or eliminated. Although the German Assault Engineers suffered 50+% losses during the battle. In the south, a 250m long-wire-line have been constructed during the night by the Russians. A small German force approach and establish a perimeter west of the wire line. German Casualties: 4 Ldr, 11.5 Sq-eq, 8 SWs, 1 Gun. Russian Casualties: 2 Ldr, 25 Sq-eq, 5 SWs. German OB, end of 23 Oct (SAN: 3), 12 Leaders 1 Gun (PaK38), 2 AFVs (StuG IIIB, Pz IIIL), Retained again - OBA Btln MTR 80+mm. 35 Sq-Eq (5 Crews, 3.5 AE, 16.5 Elite, 12.5 1st/2nd Line), 24 SWs (8 MMG, 8 LMG, 3 ATR, Lt MTR, FT, 3 DC).

  20. Day Six—22 October —Dual Attack, Moist, Overcast, No Wind at start. German Reinforcements:Pz IIIL pltn, Sturm 4:Coy, OBA Btln MTR 80+mm. Total German OB ELR: 4, SAN:3, 17 Leaders 4 Guns (GrW 34, 3x PaK38), 4 AFVs (StuG IIIB, 3x Pz IIIL), 57.5 Sq-Eq (7 Crews, 23.5 Elite, 30.5 1st/2nd Line), 30 SWs (HMG, 8 MMG, 12 LMG, 4 ATR, 3 Lt MTR, 2 DC).

AFTERMATH (7 Game Turns): Another day of attrition as the Germans launch their attack along the whole front line. At the railway embankments area the assault force the Russians to retreat 200m, and they gained control of more terrain and buildings. In the factory complex, a brutal see-saw battle in the factory halls broke out, and eventually the Germans penetrated 50-100m deeper into the halls. In the Volga sector area, an early attempt to assault the Chemist Shop failed, and the Russian counterattacked out of the building and routed the Germans from the building. The next day, the frontline will open up along the entire length of the railway embankment. The Red October factories (south of the Red Barricades) will be assaulted in force, hopefully this new possible approach of attack will stretch the front line for the defenders, and might crack the spirit of the Russians morale. German Casualties: 3 Ldr, 19 Sq-eq, 6 SWs, 2 Guns, 2 AFVs (one Recalled). Russian Casualties: 1 Ldr, 22.5 Sq-eq, 5 SWs, 3 Guns, 1 AFV.
