From Moscow's point of view, and (I know, it's early for them, but ... poetic license , right?)
the soon-to-be "Night Witches" arrive for training,

in the game Dave and I are playing (the 1.9 version, latest restart ... I think this is our third go at it) Kolatov's 26th is tearing up Hungarian rail systems that use the Kosice Basin, very nice destruction there, a couple hundred Soviet tanks and their infantry. Well, the 26th Army. A screenshot of that is back under the first page of posts, #14 . Anyway, in this go, my Partisans are indeed spawning now :) helping to sow confusion near the Polish border (they blew two good bridges back there, huzzah!)

Showing here Pskov, with 1st Mech Commander photoshop into unit info ... that is Mikhail Chernyavsky. I show where it would be cool to have his "commander stats" shown in that little area I have boxed. Anyone know if that TOAW: Commanders mod or upgrade is still in the works, maybe a time line of release? Even maybe a beta test of it? Screenshots? Inquiring minds want to know!

from my game w/ David (v1.9) just finished Sovs turn 9.
The frumpish fellow I photoshopped in there is Ivan Boldin.
Don't know much about him. He looks tired.
No doubt, trying to hold Kishiney. Fingers crossed!
From the situation briefing, it looks like the German shock has dropped to 120 ...
I expect David will be using a Shock Chit soon!

Sure, here is AGC railroad from turn 32 early Oct. '41...will take me a bit to get AGN / AGS to show.

AGN is railroad all through Estonia to Tallin, all the way to Narva. Struggling to get to Luga.
AGS is railroad to Kiev not much farther than that. Will post pic when I can.

Here is Kiev / Zhitomir from my game w/ David,
Smirnov managed to hold Zhitomir to keep Germans from more shock on T13,
but I think he used an offensive chit / TO last turn to bust through.
Smirnov will soon meet his fate, as was case in RL.
I had hell finding his pic, looks like a Chess player to me.
Also photoshopped in a thing on the picture,
his medals are not right, i need to figure out which medals to give him.

We shall see!

Tallin under Gerasimov (photoshopped in here, I hope he is on that list.)
I can't quite make out his medals.
One is Order of Suvorov (2d Class)? but that is a post-war medal?.
not sure when sketch was made, maybe post-war medals on there.
He is a determined looking fellow. Must be, he survived the war.

I think Tallin will hold at least another turn

Probably the photo was made in 50's.
There is Order of Kutuzov (1st class) on his right side - rewarded 22/09/43.
Others are 2 Orders of Red Banner (he had 4 in total - 1921(2), 43 and 49), Medal "XX years of RKKA" (1938), Medal "For the Defence of Leningrad" (1942).

Hi

I am currently playing version 1.9 with Søren, and in our game (currently on turn 77), the partisans work fine.

The first partisans to appear are 6 small "Remnant" units that appear after the germans take Bialystok, Minsk, and Kiev. 2 units for each city. These units do not reconstitute. It appears that you did receive these units and that the Germans have destroyed them (since I can see that you have taken partisan squads casulties)

And after that Russian partisan units appear in 3 ways:
1) Some appear after certain other cities are taking
2) Some appear on a certain turn - the first on turn 47
3) Some appear after certain events are taken (the first such event is the first Russian winter offensive).

Since you are in turn 20 you will not have received any partisan under 2 and 3 yet.

Regarding the city-based partisans: they appear after the below cities are taken:
Pskov
Soltsy
Luga
Novgorod
Pskov
Staraya Russa

Have the Germans take any of these? If not then that is why you have not received any partisans yet.

I hope this helps, if not then please write again.

Regards
Kristian

Thank you! I see now why I haven't seen them lately but did in other games. Great scene! We love it!

Here is another shot of my game with David, his approach to Moscow.
Vyazma must hold! SHOOT THE ARTILLERY!!
Soviet artillery is the only attack vector available to the Soviets for the first 20 or so moves....
without being chewed to pieces by the Luftwaffe

I am very glad you like it.

The German player seems to be in a lot of trouble :)
It does not look like he achieved any of objective to gain the shock turns on turn 7, 13 and 19.

Anyway, having fun is the most important part.

Søren is bound to kill me in 1942, but it does not matter - it is the process that matters in a game like this - not the end result :)

Yes, he did get the first one at turn 7 / 8
but not the others.
Not sure if or when he used the offensive chits for German

@Sovs 24 I had told David a few turns ago I thought I had finally
stopped AGC b/w Smolensk and Vyazma,
but he's blown through a big gap and Das Reich is driving hard
for the outskirts of Moscow,
Vyazma in trouble now on 24.

Leningrad starting to sweat too. Pretty fun game.
