Disposable Heroes: Chuckster vs. the Dice Gods
Hi Kids, Played a favorite of mine, Disposable Heroes! This time we decided to do something different, we took an old Squad Leader scenario for the setup and went to town! In retrospect doing this without checking the point values was probably not a great idea, as it turned out the attacker (me) was about 25% behind the defender in army points. Arg! Learn something new everyday! And to add insult to injury, my opponent had God's Own Dice while my luck was circling the toilet the entire time. Sometimes I wonder why I game at all...
The long view of the board, the Soviets are on the far end and have to exit the table through the German lines with half their forces intact. The Huns are set up in the foreground. The Russians have 4 JS-2's and 8 infantry squads, while the Huns have a 128mm Jagdtiger, a Nashorn, and 5 infantry squads.
Here's the scenario, in the future I'd go ahead and get a rough idea of the points for each side. For example, the JS-2 is worth 253pts, the Jagdtiger a whopping 850!!!! Whoa! Still had a huge amount of fun playing Disposable Heroes! Figs are 25mm Westwind, Battlefront, and TAG. Tanks are London War Room, Jungle Rot, Hobby Armor Depot, and a 1/48 diecast Marder.
