Thanks to my Wargame Secret Santa now I can enjoy the OCS system with Baltic Gap. I already owned Burma which I really appreciate but this time it goes to the East front with a different counter density and much more manoeuvers !

 

End of November a couple of friends and I tried the scenario 5.4 of Baltic Gap (OCS), named "the Baltic Gap"..... 2 players used to command the South Front, the others 2 the North Front (which correspond in BG at the two scenarios 5.2 and 5.3 collated). 

 

Ongoing setup.

 

We are not OCS experts at all and 2 buddies were discovering the system so it took us some time to start. At the end of our session 4 turns were done... It was very frustrating but we knew the time limit right from the beginning. Anyway, it was a lot of fun and the germans started to fall back seriously when it was time to leave. 

I still need to practice with this system in order to develop proper attacks (proper use of planes?, opportunity to overrun? is artillery that useful against this hex? Why the hell did I left my troops on open terrain?....)

 

Situation at the end of the game. I was commanding the south soviet front. I followed the south border of the map starting encirclement of german troups. Obviously my opponent would have retreated in a rush before I can close the "pince".

The northern front showed 2 nice breakthroughs at the end of the day.

The next OCS experience will be on Guderian's Blitzkrieg II. Setup is ongoing for scenario 7.1 (for few turns in solo).

My first OCS game was Baltic Gap a little over 2 years ago. I have bought most of the games now and have at least one (usually more) OCS games going at all times! Great series.

Looks like great fun!  Like Anthony, I too only learned the OCS system this time last year, with my intro being Tunisia.  I am still playing scenarios from that module.  Haven't punched my Baltic gap yet, but looking forward to doing so.  Enjoy the game guys.

I share your excitement. This time last year I was learning OCS for the first time. It is not only learning the system but how to use the proper tactics WITH the system. Great fun. Enjoy!
