SK VASLeague 2010 - Round One GO!

Just wrapped up a great first session (first two turns) with Mr. Larry Kastel in our SK VASLeague Round 1 matchup. There be German SS roaming about here. It's turning out to be quite the bloodbath all around.

As always, I'm learning something new in this game. First, SK3 level errata has been added somewhere along the line that states:

SK3 3.3: "Units enter from off board - either at the start of a scenario or as reinforcements - as directed by the scenario card, including turn and location of entry. Units are set up offboard along the specified edge(s) of the map at the start of their RPh in the player turn of entry.They may not perform any action while offboard except move during the MPh per normal Open Ground movement costs. They must enterduring the MPh or APh of their turn of entry or be eliminated. Roads are considered to extend off board for purposes of road bonus."
Soooooo... basically I and my opponents have being doing this all wrong for a year (ha!). Reinforcements must basically set-up in "virtual hexes" just offboard before entering during the MPh or APh. There you go, more stuff you didn't know...

Hi scrub... I knew the rule (it's the same as full ASL) and we applied it correctly during our game in Round One of VASLeague '09. The only round that I lost... ;D
BTW, would you be interested in a PbeM SK3 game? Although I'm playing full ASL at the moment (infantry and Guns) I would like to practice more with vehicles the SK-way before venturing into chapter D.

What Scenario are you playing?

From the picture, it looks like a setup for "Released From the East". Played that this weekend and the Russians lost 8 squads in the first two turns against a defense similar to what you displayed here. Russians kept rolling high, failing morale checks, not to many places to rout so close to the edge of the board.

Definitely looks like S6 - Released from the East. I played it on round 2 last year against Vidal Bairos, winning it as the Russian (AAR here: http://freeforumzone.leonardo.it/discussione.aspx?idd=8464692)

mdnowak, YOU SAW OUR GAME!

Actually, I'm roleplaying the Russian way of war. Just throw men at the problem til it breaks and fails to rout.


It is S6. Fun to go back to SK1. Luca, if I have time I'm game...
