Russian vs. Germans CoC

I haven't had the chance to play in awhile but I have acquired a new side for my CoC armies...the Russians make their debut thanks to a pretty good deal via TMP member BigJoeDuke. I was also able to add quite a bit of German stuff and a few bits of American armor in the deal. So a big shout out to BJD for hooking me up. And now for the AAR...

Somewhere in East Germany

The scenario is Attack and Defend pitting1 platoon of regular Soviets and a T34/85 vs. 1 platoon of green Germans and a leIG 18

The German JOP's...

The Russian side

Russian scouts put out feelers

Advancing up the right flank

A German lmg team posts up

The Russians decide to try the other way around

Keeping in cover

The infantry gun makes itself known

The Russian scouts are caught in the open

and sent packing

The rest of the Russki squad hunkers down

While their commander brings up some armor

And gets a manuever squad in place

The gun takes out the big armor (an amazing series of rolls, the gun needed a 10 to hit rolled a 12, then rolled 3 hits out of 4 dice while the T-34 rolled 0 saves out of 7!)

But the Russian infantry whittles them down and breaks the gun

A German squad tries to plug the hole 

And the Soviets begin to manuever arounded the wooded ridge

Another German squad tries to move up in support

but the exposed  team is pinned...

And broken

The Germans lose their JOP

And their morale drops to 2, making a victory all but impossible

The final butcher's bill was 10 dead Germans (including the senior leader) to 4 dead Russians (including a junior leader). I hope to start a Soviet camapaign using At the Sharp End soon...so stay tuned!


  1. Very nice report, looks like a fun game!

  2. It looks like you remembered to take all the main photos - I always get excited and forget a few. Very effective terrain.
