Campaign for Orsha: June 22, 1944 - The set up

With my son's recent acquisition of a Soviet force of his very own, I decided to work on a campaign. I settled on the begining of Operation Bagration with the Soviet attack on the city of Orsha.

I am trying to come up with a creative campaign that will allow him to field his new troops and not involve too much work researching more than the hours I already have. I secured a 1:50,000 scale map of the town that dates to 1937. That should provide a nice basis for the campaign. I have cut away most of the map and made it our campaign area.

With this in mind, I will let him pick an avenue of attack. He will pick his forces and supports based on the map and the terrain shown. I will then pick forces representing the defensive line at that point. If it works out well, we should have some fun games of Chain of Command or possible What a Tanker if he just wants to run with his armor.

Hopefully, I'll get some pictures up of the games.


  1. Looking forward to this one Ive been painting up oodles of panzers in 6mm

    1. Nice. I really regret selling my 6mm collection. It would provide some nice options.
