Massive thanks to everyone who braved the weather to travel all the way darn sarf. Kit standard and gamesmanship was top notch as always.
The Germans combined aggressive gameplay with excellent tactics. Even though the Soviets had dug in on the high ground, it felt as if we were on the back foot for the first half of the day as the Germans repeatedly identified weak points in our lines and attacked in strength. Despite this we managed to repel the fascist hordes until about lunchtime thanks to the stubborn resilience of the defenders of the motherland and some blindingly accurate mortar fire. Those pyro were an awful lot of fun

After lunch we moved steadily back to the power plant, effecting enough casualties on the enemy to make our tactical retreat seem worthwhile. The terrain around the power plant was very much in our favour, and some excellent squad tactics saw us drive the Germans back again and again. I even managed to lead a flag waving infantry charge that left all my men dead except for me. I then tripped over and accidentally machine gunned my own foot

The game had been designed to make as much use of the site as possible so we reluctantly abandoned the power plant and moved into the dockyard area. The CQB nature of the buildings meant that our squads who had been so good at remaining in their units became impossibly mixed together. It didn't matter, as we still put up strong, structured defensive actions instead of degenerating into blatfest.

Despite denying the Germans any foothold inside the office complex, the arrival of a 600mm shell from "Thor" effectively ended all resistance. The cold had had a serious effect on batteries and equipment in general so we felt it better to end the game slightly ahead of time as a few players had no weapons at all yet continued to fight for the cause of international communism - when one man falls, the other takes his weapon

All in all a jolly good day out. I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures taken by "nursey".

What a great game, big thanks to the organisers. I had an excellent day, which is good as I can barely move today. Highlights for me were my mortar round directly on the German MG nest as they tried to take the ridge at the start of the day, and shooting numerous Germans as they stormed up the hill to the Powerplant leaving a pile of wounded in front of my position.
Heres a few pictures I took, I'll put up some more later

Another fantastic WW2 event, one of the best that i've attended so far! Big, big thanks to the organisers for all the effort that they put into this event, it was clear from the flow of the game that everything had been incredibly well planned, hats off to you guys! Big thanks to, to Boshman, Steiner and Bosh for their leadership in the field!

From a personal perspective, good to see friends old and new, I think i may have gained a reputation as being handy with our German mortar (more by luck than judgement!), despite getting continuously mortared myself from my Russkie counterpart!! Well played to everyone, didn't hear any complaining despite the arctic weather!

For me, it was brilliant to see a sea of Feldgrau as the Germans moved forward. Hardly a speck of camo in sight (just the odd helmet cover, in fact), and it looked really authentic and early war Heer. Well done, all.

Excellant site, Excellant organisation, Excellant gameplay.....Dodgy stomach This had all the makings of being the best game I had attended so far untill ill health stopped me half way through (must wear less kit nextime )

Although the night before looking down on the site it had appeared quite open there was actually plenty of cover. Great to see such good command control, this makes a huge differance to a game.

Kit levels were fantastic it looked absolutely superbe to see so many Germans in field grey and helmets moving forward to attack.

Enjoyed my crack at squad leader (although short lived) got every one killed in our first assault (sorry!) but hopefully made up for it when leading an ad hoc kampfgruppe with a coordinated attack later under cover of smoke grenades.

The Russians put up a superbe defence, plenty of counterattacks and shifting reserves to keep us on our toes.

Special thanks to Ade for the loan of a gearbox for the MG, there really are some top geezers attending these event (and thanks to Dadio too)

Props were fantastic, well done everyone involved but especially Boshman your far too good at this us ordanary mortals have a lot to live up to.

Couldnt beleive that 3 batteries did not work in the cold, just as well we brought plenty.

Journey home was a nightmare, but a big big thanks to all of AGS and everyone else who worked so hard to make the game a success.

Not much I can add to all that. Had a brilliant day, top marks to everyone on kit, seeing the top of that first hill, when we finally took it covered in feld grey clad and helmeted germans looked superb. The russians looked brilliant as well (excellent pics Steinlager) Great gameplay on both sides with some hard scraps during the day. Thanks to Vince and Dadio for helping me sort out my dying gun. Can't wait for the next one. You AGS boys have certainly set the bar for immersive WW2 games.

Agreed, there were several times during the game I had to abandon a good position because I ran out of ammo. I think it was one of the factors that helped to make sure the game didnt bog down.

must just add my seconding what others have said about the huge effort everyone put into their kit,i remember standing next to steiner and just watching the german attack on the first russian position and being in awe of the panorama of field grey troops in action,probably the most imersive moment ive witnessed and we both just looked on happy just to watch for a while.just one of many moments when i just had to step back to observe.
awesome stuff well done everyone.

Big to AGS. Excellent day, really enjoyed blowin s**t up with CW,Rich & Otto. 1st time going as Heer & not the usual SS.................and i spose it was ok did have a splinter helmet cover though,(camo enthusiast )
The Sturmpionier Gruppe was a great role to play, especialy defusing the mines whilst under fire all our tasks were achived without any delays so that the German advance wasnt held up, especially pleasing was the spiking of the Naval guns when we eventualy convinced the last German soldat that it might be a good idea to pull back from the turret before we blow it up, the explosion put a large hole in the gun barrel. Think i may have a job i like doing.
