Shiloy Tshernez, the Spanish Blue Division in Russia, 17 January 1942
As always, we used 20mm (1:72 & 1:76 scale) figures, vehicles and scenery, and it was gamed using a sand table.
The scenario is based on an actual action fought by elements of the Spanish "División Azul" ski company on a combat reconnaissance patrol, reinforced by 40 Latvians from the German 81st Infantry Division. Moving through snow, eventually coming to Shiloy Tshernez. The Spanish and Latvians tried to outflank and surround the village and to converge from all sides.
A good well-balanced scenario, and a game well played, thanks to fellow gamers who played this scenario, Carlos, Alejandro and Juan.
Great looking game John.ReplyDelete

Hi—I stumbled across your blog and Youtube channel while doing research for making my own sand table. May I ask what kind of sand you use? Your table is an inspiration! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Hi David, thanks for the message. It was difficult finding fine builder's sand where I live so I used rough unfiltered sand first then some months later I finally found some decent fine sand. I'm still finding and filtering out the stones from the rough sand two years later :-). Good luck with the project.Delete
