Fort Floriet 12/05/06

Friday at Fort Floriet

Jim's Russians v. Chris' Fins in 1500 pt Hold the Line, Fins defending.
The Commie hordes swarmed forward, with mortars & a/tank guns moved up just in range of the objective to give covering fire.
The Fins formed a forlorn line of infantry & HMGs stiffened with 2 recycled KVs.
The usual stuff - balk Russian casulatied, but not enough to stop them.
The KVs survived a rain of long range 57mm a/tank fire, but in the end were done for by Commo Pioneers.
The Fin supports were slow to arive & then were delayed further by being pinned by the Commo airforce. They just didn't arrive in time so the remnants of the Commo infantry took the objective.

Unfortunately the Finns had 3 platoons deployed to stop 1500pts of russians.

The first reserve arrived turn 3 then got pinned for 3 turns.The second reserve came on on turn 5 and overtook the first neither made it to the objective :(

A no win situation for the Finns. I will tweek them to get that 8th platoon.
