Hi all,

After a couple of months away from WitE (due to burnout and sloppy play creeping in on my part) and my last game being on indefinite hold I decided to start to get back into WitE.

I'm playing Deserted Fox with me as the Axis. Game started under 1.06.13. Alt VC 41 Campaign. Not many House Rules except no SU spam bombing of units and I won't mule or abuse HQ stuff.

We've already played 7 turns so this is to get up to speed.

My aims are to take Leningrad and Moscow by Blizzard. Ideally I'll capture a load of Soviets too but it depends on DF's play style of which I have no inkling at game start.

I diverted 39th PzC north to help take Leningrad.

Standard openings really. End of T1 situation

AGN:

T 2.

AGN:

DF places a skirmish line near Pskov but 39th PzC outflanks this to the SE and would risk encirclement next week.

Pockets cleaned up.

Checkerboarding by DF.

LVII PzC heads north of Minsk towards Vitebsk.

2nd PzG heads east of Minsk. Fuel will be an issue from now on as you'll see.....

AGS:

Lvov pocket broken (no surprise with no help from PzG 2) but re-sealed and a couple more untis are cut off SW of Vinnitsa with a bigger pocket formed NW of Rovno.

Seems like DF is fortifying the Dnepr and generally pulling back:

Turn 3.

AGN.

DF abandoned Pskov and falls back on a barely entrenched Luga Line. A lack of fuel means my boys can't advance that far:

AGC.

The Landbridge is not defended and the Panzers take Vitebsk and to the east on fumes. Fuel will be a problem now......

Mass Sir Robin by DF.

A load of territory taken but no new pockets are possible.

Turn 4.

AGN.

No attacks by DF.

The Luga line is broken but fuel is still lacking.

Sir Robin to the Vyazma line by DF. No chance of any pockets here. Grr. Lack of fuel as always.

AGS.

Cherkassy is taken and 38th Rifle Div. is thrown back from the Dnepr by 16th Motorised Div.

The sheer amount of units the SU has by Sir Robin though means it can be tough to take the Dnepr quickly.

OOB.

Due to Sir Robin the SU OOB is growing and there's little I can do about it.

Frustratingly I've also not taken any other industry apart from HI as DF has evac'd just in time.

I hope to create a squeeze with pressure on Leningrad, Moscow and Kharkov area simultaneously.

Sigh. Notwithstanding Michael T, this pure runaway just isn't the way to go, guys. There's plenty of garbage units that can be left behind as pickets to slow the Axis down. Including your mech. You really need only save the infantry (and not even all of that, your crap morale infantry is expendable), mountain units, and cav. Airborne, NKVD, lol mech, AT brigades, there's not much point in saving any of that junk. (Partially excepting the airborne, but you have more of it than you can drop at any given time and you receive lots more of it at the end of the year anyways.)

Also, he mismanaged his northern defense. Pskov can be held for a couple of turns. The Luga line is no fit place to make your first stand. Or even your second one. (The next line is really Leningrad-Novgorod.)

Agreed - at a minimum you need to keep units around to stick on the panzers and motorized units so they can't refit. It's remarkable how quickly you can get their CVs down even with no real combat whatsoever.

Finland.

I managed to bag 3 divisions overall before the rest scampered away.

VL area.

2nd Army takes over this sector which is naturally very quiet.

AGS:

Lack of fuekl and strong re-organised defence along the Dnepr mean only a few hexes are gained and the bridgehead widened.
