SASL Campaign - Operation Barbarossa

1941

June

Set-Up, Turn 1, Turn 2, Turn 3, Turn 4
This is an on-going SASL campaign that I'm playing verey now and then when I find the extra time. I'm including all the dice rolls etc., so if you find a mistake in my playing, please let me know. I'm still fairly inexperienced with ASL although I started playing it back in '86 or so...

We've now finally finished our training and have been given assignment on the front. The company is fresh, and we're eagerly looking forward to finishing off the Communist threat to our East.

6 2 drm: -1 colored 52: Panzers stage a flank attack! Allright! (Darn, now I have to study rules C and D again). Then again, I really would have trouble flushing out all Suspect ?'s in 10-16 turns as it is, so fast moving activation check activators are appreciated. As they're somewhat armored, they'll propably survive the first contact.
