On Friday night I travelled to Godders house to play a game of Blitzkrieg Commander. It was a 1000 point meeting engagement with new forces. I was the Germans and Godders was the Russians. We are both building up to 2000 point armoured battlegroups for the very late war period. This is not much of an after action report because I got tabled after six turns. Tabled means I lost all my units and Godders lost none. I was thoroughly beaten down and humiliated, Hero unit of the battle, a Russian Katyusha Rocket launching truck (unpainted!!). Godders got all his forward observer command roles in. Constantly suppressed my units and maneuvered his formations into positions that offered him cover and good fields of fire. Artillery is king of the battlefield. Good win to Godders.

My 1000 point Germans. (Sorry about the crappy photos)

Godders 1000 point Russians. Note the unpainted and unmade Katyusha!

An example of my units in flames.

Sorry to hear about the loss but a game is a game my friend.

Great looking tanks...looks like a good time, probably better if you won.
