Danny commented on Jacob Wikman's group Operational Combat Series Gaming
"My Axis opponent and I have spent some time mulling over widespread winter effects in our current CB/GBII/EatG-with-the-crusts-cut-off game (now in mid-November 1941) and we have kind of taken a mallet to the RAW. As far as winter movement goes, we…"

Danny replied to Nathan's discussion Australia/NZ-based OCS-ers? in the group Operational Combat Series Gaming
"Time-zone issues? There's a few buck-toothed and inbred types who insist on living far, far to the West, out where the bunyips roam free and the camels wear Ray-Bans. Those that still have teeth, that is."

"Ocker OCSers? Sure, one or two. And based? Well, all my stuff is here, so yeah, I could say I'm based in Australia."

'Comrade General, we know which end the bullets come of of now!' (OCS CB/EatG mini-AAR)

By the start of November 1941 the glorious freedom-loving volunteer heroes of the People's Red Army are getting into the swing of things, aided by inspired leadership from the rear by their beloved Commissars.And the VVS has discovered that the funny bulbous things on the wings of their planes will make happy little explosions amongst the Germans if dropped on them from a great height.Kharkov - Where did all my tanks go? Never mind, we seem to have the Germans in what their propaganda apparatus…See More

'Comrade General, it appears they weren't just playing possum after all.' (OCS CB/EatG mini-AAR)

By the end of October 1941 it was clear that things were starting to go slightly wrong for the Axis.If memory serves, at one point outside Kharkov and Dnepropetovsk it was only an Axis double-turn that saved a couple of chunks of the Wehrmacht from a sticky situation (the corresponding Russian double-turn occurring earlier for little or no advantage).Images are taken at the end of the [27?] October 1941 turn when the Russians went second; I think these are 1 or 2 turns after the previous set. I…See More

'Comrade General, they're not in fact chasing us...' (OCS CB/EatG mini-AAR)

The Russian strategy was simple - run squealing like a little girl as fast and as far East as they could. Hold Kharkov as long as possible and stuff a bunch of ignorant workers into every urban centre in sight to throw themselves in front of the juggernaut while the real soldiers escaped with all the dignity they could muster.


But then a funny thing happened; the Germans didn't appear to be pursuing. In fact, by mid-October 1941 their offensive appeared to be…

'Comrade General, we've run out of map!' (OCS CB/EatG mini-AAR)

My first serious OCS Campaign Case Blue/Enemy at the Gates has finished with a surprising win for the Red Army - and I think the Russian Commander (me) may have been more astonished than the Axis Commander (my esteemed yet clearly inferior opponent) at how it all ended.


We were (still are really) both shiny-cheeked newcomers to OCS; I'd played around with a couple of OCS Korean scenarios yonks ago, but aside from a nasty memory of having Marine aircraft hose my…
