So next week the campaign begins:

Those German among you, after the efforts at Kursk, have just completed several months of training back in the fatherland and are newly qualified Panzer commanders. Your parent Division the famed LAH is entraining in Italy to be rushed once more to the Eastern Front to yet again save the day. In your brand new Panzer IV H and Stug III G you are beginning your journey, with newbie crews at the railhead in Germany, sent to meet your colleagues of the 2nd SS Panzer Kompanie, or 2nd SS Stug Bty, and resist the Soviet horde.

Those Russian among you are some of the few survivors of the 5th Guards Tank Army, pulverised at Kursk. You have been promoted and spent a few weeks training as a tank commander with new crews and brand new T34/76. The 5th Guards have been reformed and are about to be flung into the breach to finally break the hated German line and push on to Berlin.

This is my list of commanders as it stands. If I have missed anyone or their are late entries let me know. I have updated the campaign rules as attached, mainly to outline the activation process. Just to reiterate there is no need to play every game and no catchups are required. The more games you play the more rewards you can obtain. On the downside more chance to get your character killed. I have tried to meet everyones request for side and tank. Again if anyones has concerns let me know.

Figures: 28mm Imperial Roman and Ancient Britons 700 figures ish, 28mm Napoleonic French, Brits, Portugese and Dutch-Belgian, several thousand based for General de Brigade but work for most rules, 28mm WW2 German, Russian, British and US about company of each with vehicles 1 to 1. Large army's of 15mm Napoleonic most nations based to Napoleons Battles but fairly flexible.

Can I get confirmation on who is coming on Monday.

Due to numbers Plts are now 4 Tanks. I'm short a winter Stug (Have some non winter) but have just about finished the 4th Pzr IV. However anyone with there own tank is welcome as well as any spares of the same type to use as knocked out.

Please bring a couple of character printout sheets for the relevant side each. I have a number of dashboards and counters/cards, however if others do also that would be helpful. It would be useful if the soviet players can nominate one of their own to discuss any issues off line that may crop up. Eg if things seem a bit one sided and may need a balancing. I do have a few ideas to introduce if things don't appear even.

I have been keen to encourage a national feel to each side rather than have two equal. Where there is a negative (the soviet need to advance Stah Stah Stah, I have balanced with soviets upgrading early to T34/85. However as the campaign progresses inconsistencies may arise which may need adjustment.
