Where we last left our totally not evil german heroes
We are told its snowing and raining heavily this round, thus, limited movements. Which is good since I can re-arrange (a little) my units based on suggestions given by you lovely people. But bad because I WANT TO ATTACK DEATH TO ALL COMMUNISTS..
So, we start with a very, very, very thorough examination of our map so move our units into the best position as possible to continue to push next turn.
By the way, here are the causalities so far
As a babby grognard I say this is great! I killed more than they killed me. But I know deep down inside I could have done better. There are many notes for me to write to German parents back home that due to the leadership of General Heyhellowhatsnew, their child died because he was ordered to attack up a hill with a wrench for the glory of the Reich.
Anyway, back to the map. Lets start with out HQs and see how far they are from our front so they can maximize smashing for our units.
Since this is primarily no combat turn, I will just show you the movements I made:
In this image, You can see I moved the HQ units up and tried to reposition the units close to the link (namely the 389th) to prepare for their attack next turn (weather permitting)
Again, I move my HQ units closer to the link, as well as move my panzers closer to the bridgehead the 44th currently holds. You can also see that I reconed quite a bit this turn to see what is ahead. It only appears to be one line of defense which is great.
I plan on bombing Izium as instructed to get rid of their Soviet airforce next turn.
This last turn again shows me moving up the HQs and repositioning units to take the town next turn. I save my commander points so that they can use offensive cards next turn. I want to break the Soviets back on turn 5. I have had enough of them…
From this picture, I might be able to do a pincer move that cuts off the soviets’ front in the middle. That’s a long term goal if all goes well. But it ends with the 60th and 44th to meet in the middle and high five each other.
This is the map at the end of my turn:
This is the map after the Soviets move:
They cut off my bridgehead on the 44th and breakthrough the line up north. Sigh
Goddammit why did they get good attacks during a SNOW AND RAINFALL TURN
