I've had these almost finished for a good while, but they are done now. Excess to what I need, but fits in nicely with what I want. Crews are Battlefront, although maybe a few Command Decision figures have crept in. I would have liked some extra figures to add to the bases, but three will have to do (and if I did have more crew they would be best on a separate base hauling ammo).

This is a big game. You focus on one area, turn away, look back and it takes a while to find where you were looking at previously!
But we are getting there.

My Soviets were missing some HMG stands. I had an opportunity to get some Command Decision figures which came with a firing or moving option, but only one set of guns. Without doing any research I arranged for a couple of 3D printed HMGs. The difference is striking. I now know why, they are two different weapons. Doh!

Allied 5th Impulse weather roll is a 9 – fine everywhere, but storm still in the N Monsoon. CW take a Land and the US and Russia Combined. US subs hunt convoys with some success in the S China Sea cutting off much of the Far East oil to Japan. US Acft are rebased into the Pacific. In the West, the CW land units assault the 1.1 GAR unit cutting supply to Paris and advance in Southern France capturing Marseilles and Bordeaux. The US launches a Blitz against the two German, inverted and OOS Mech units over the River Seine and destroy both as there is no retreat path, but lose their ENG – Paris is now surrounded. Allied Strat bombers target German factories shutting down two. Russia, exhausted, takes a Combined and sails its CA’s into the Baltic to deter German shipping and trigger another search for the Italian Nav – no find. A number of units advance in Ukraine and in the Far East, a single Blitz attack by the Russian rolls well eliminating the two German units leaving a hole in the German line. Russia ends the turn on a 2, the Axis delighted, the Allies not so, initiative marker moves to +1 Axis – no reroll for the Allies and the Axis will win ties. No Partisans.

Eh, I mean Saturnalia.
The velites and legionaries are repurposed from a DBA army, Essex figures. The auxiliares were a rescue job (spare figures no longer required, manufacturer unknown).
