Warwick Kinrade ask me if we would be willing to playtest 'Kampfgruppe Kursk' for him... Its basically an Eastern Front version of KGN. We obviously jumped at the chance and its proving to be a great game with as much excitement as the Normandy version but obviously the armies play in differing ways. I cant give too much away but its highly enjoyable!
Tonight we used the 'Defence-in-Depth' scenario from KGN (seemed apt for the period) with the Russians defending a German assault. Both armies were of 400 points and I used a German Panzer force against a Russian infantry force. What is quickly clear is that the Russians get alot more men! But they dont get the high morale or command benefits of the Germans, though do have a number of specific rules that make them behave in a Russkie manner!
