A Soviet offensive in the winter's mud saw two hexes captured, representing important river bridgeheads in Lithuania and Manchuria. Unfortunately Zhukov's offensive in the Ukraine squibbed.

This week I was short of time, but we did manage to finish to the end of 1915 and what a bloody year it was. Impressed at how ell the simple game mechanics simulate WW1.

Feeling real good that I got this project finished.
- 4 large units of FP that can be configured as spear or impetus warrior
- 5 units of T archer which can be added to the FP spearmen to form large units
- 5 units of medium cavalry
- 2 units of medium camelry
- 2 horse archers
- 2 camel archers
- 2 light cavalry javelin
- 2 light camelry javelin
- 2 skirmisher javelin
- 3 skirmishers bow
- 3 skirmisher sling
- 1 general
I could or should have said Arab Horse and Camel, but mounted fits in better with Impetus classifications, the rules I have used when creating my Arab Conquest army which actually allows me to create all the Basic Impetus 2.0 Armies of Islam forces.
These figures/units have mainly just been a rebasing and make good exercise from the purchase I made last year and received for Xmas.

Des tried his hand with my Byzantines. However fortune favoured the Abbasids.
All over in an hour.
The Abbasids had a few scratches, but no losses.
This time with pictures, but it is still mud, slush and rain on the Eastern Front.

In our next session of this classic game Richard and I almost completed a whole year. Strangely, not much changed.

I continue to work on my Soviets, but the reinforces are just a trickle at the moment.
While meant to be towing AT guns or light artillery, I've been using them to represent motorised infantry for Rommel games.

A new configuration of my Arabs to make an army to fight Thematic Byzantines, but first they had to deal with some Sassanids.
