Re: "Enjoy the War."

So I have a chronic habit of restarting this time I cooked up a new OOB that's probably a little bit less insane than what I had before.

1x Battalion HQ

2x SS Panzergreandiere Kompanie starting...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

I've had to put my IJA campaign on hold for the time being since I'm trying out Monty's DAS REICH mod for Steel Panthers MBT. I actually started mine in 1931 in Manchuria and found it a very...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Absolutely, its much better to throw the fight than to wreck your core forces. Not that you shouldn't try for the objectives, but if it means sacrificing your core veterans its just going to make...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Finally pushed past Kiev and well into October now. Had an extremely nasty Delay night battle in the rain with no moon! (visibility 1!) That was an ugly one, T-34's popping up everywhere and no...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

I noticed in your thread you certainly seem to have an enthusiastic following (even if I cannot really tell what anyone is saying! I don't speak German sadly). I've toyed with buying a...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Yeah, my own infantry have to "hide with pride" in the woods or rough terrain even when they have tellermines or grenade bundles. I use smoke grenades liberally to break line of sight and get on the...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Yeah, the morale bonuses for the SS are about the only real reason to use them. They're not much better than regular Grenadiers besides that. Still, if your scouts can find the enemy first you can...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

You know, with my Japanese campaign I'm suspecting I'll appreciate night assaults and advances much more than I do as the Germans. The way I play the game is almost totally different.

I have a...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Well, I'm glad your time in the service remained peaceful. It would not have been much fun for anyone if it had been otherwise. :) And yes, I've got Korsun pocket and Bagration to look forward...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

You're absolutely right, its more important to have fun than to adhere blindly to historical convention. Also interesting to hear that you served, I notice an awful lot of vets seem to really enjoy...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

I can at least catch the gist of it, though my German is pretty poor to non-existent ;) Its a really cool AAR though, thank you for sharing it!

I do like big fights but the problem with them is...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

I may take you up on that offer at some point! As it stands, I find that I can win most battles but the real challenge to me is preserving my forces from battle to battle, rather than winning...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Thats very much how I look at it. Its also partially a problem of how to represent a division that was effectively destroyed by early 1944 without just throwing a fight. Same problem how you play...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

So I thought I'd recount the war journal for "SS-Germania" up till the Russian campaign.

We fought three battles in Poland, one at the Polish border, one outside Krakow and one inside the ancient...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Truthfully I usually modify the turn count to be no more than thirty. Both for time reasons and also because I feel that anything past that with such a large force is going to just allow the A.I. to...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Thanks! Haha, I've been accused of much worse, so I'll take it. Its a running complaint in my mind that I can't add a Recce and AT company as well as everything else into the core. I don't think...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Finally into July now. The fighting around Smolensk has been quite tough, mostly due to some AFV losses suffered during the fighting in Eastern Poland. None of the Panzer companies are heavily...

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Almost wrapped up the June fighting in the USSR. Some more thoughts follow:

Re: "Enjoy the War."

Some quick thoughts on the long campaigns:

I tend not to replace destroyed units until an appointed period of "Refit" is reached. As an example, any unit that was destroyed during the Polish...

Medal "Enjoy the War."

So as someone who was a tremendous fan of RERomine's DAR reports, I thought I'd put together some general thoughts and a few anecdotal reports. Nothing as thoroughly detailed as what he did, though...
