Our setup was a simple one - both sides had an infantry platoon seeking to push onto the table and scout the farm complex, which is an Italia 1/72 Le Haye Sainte I've had for a while.
|View from the Russian left flank
|View from the Russian right flank
|Germans deploy early
|Russian AOP and HMG
|Ruskies sneak into the farm
|The Hetzer advances
|Ouch - Germans get pinned in the open
|Now the Hetzer retreats
|Germans move forward in the middle
|The Hetzer arrives on the Russian right
We will make two tweaks to the rules.
1. Troops touching the back of tall cover (hills, woods, BUA) will count as in dead ground.
2. AOPs will have a limited range - 36"
The second change is to prevent a single AOP on a hill dominating the whole battle field and preventing any movement. The range limit is a bit of a fudge but avoids the need for spotting rules.
