Memoir 44 Overlord on Vassal Sun, 12 November 2017 22:43
Hi all.

It has been a while from the time we had a team OL game on Vassal.

I propose the date of Sunday Nov 26th with a start time of 9:00am / 3:00 pm Paris time.

Any recommendations for a scenario?

Hi John.

This was the better one of the The Khalkhin-Gol series in my humble opinion.

I played it 1 on 1 both sides.

The Khalkhin-Gol Encirclement.


The setup in vassal has an error with some centre Japanese units however.

Alright, we have for your consideration The Khalkhin-Gol Encirclement.

Johan - does that mean you are available for that date?

I am not sure wether I can be there.

I need to go shoot some arrows that day and it is not not clear yet if I will be in the morning session (than I could fight this Overlord) or in the afternoon (then I cannot participate in the Overlord)

I will keep you posted.

An OL report from today's action.

We played the Khalkin-Gol Encirclement with yours truly as the Japanese CinC and CFG with the left and right forces commanded by Joe (gonzoj).

The Russian CinC was by Cpl_Uhl who also played the CFG. Jeronimon commanded both flanks.

The main action occurred in the center and the Japanese left / Russian right.

Japanese forces had pushed forward in the center and on the Japanese left. The Russians met this advance and got in the first kill by finishing off a 2 fig infantry on the Japanese right.

We get a kill on an infantry on our left and I eliminate the an MG infantry, AT infantry and tank in the center. I get trip hits on the AC too but fail to roll a grenade in the 3 re-rolls. A good start and a 6 to 1 lead.

But the Russian come roaring back with two infantry kills in the center and eliminate an MG infantry,AT infantry and infantry on the Japanese left. They also claimed the center hill medal after the AC rolled over the hills there. So the score goes to 7 to 6 in favor of the Russians.

Things look grim on the Japanese left and are up in the air in the center.

Joe gets an ASSAULT for his left but his 6 units can only finish off a weak Cavalry over there. I roll up my center armor and kill off the Ac along with a tank.

The Russian center gets trip hits on one of my infantry to kill it but miss a 1 fig tankette twice with 1 die attacks. Joe loses a Cavalry and it is a 9 to 9 game.

I counter with one infantry and three tanks in the center. I claim the center hill medal with my infantry and it kills off a 2 fig infantry hiding in the woods. my armor moves up and kills another infantry along with the Flame Tank. Joe kills a cutoff cavalry. We now lead 14 to 8.

I lose one tankette to a 4d BEL attack and the Combat Eng infantry that was ordered moves onto the center hill and we lose that medal. We lose two infantry on our left but a 1 fig infantry on the medal hill is missed with a 2d tank attack. This was key as we kept that hill medal. We have a 13 to 11 lead.

I use FIREFIGHT in the center and kill off one infantry and a 1 fig tank. Joe's two right arty then kill off a 2 fig infantry. Joe's left AC kills off a 1 fig tank and for the final medal Joe uses a Molotov Cocktail with a 4d infantry attack and kills off a full strength infantry to win 18 (47) to 11 (59)!

The Russians lost the following 16 units: 5 tanks (inc a Flame Tk), an AC, 8 Infantry (inc a MG and AT infantry) and two Cavalry.

The Japanese lost the following 11 units: 1 tankette, 9 Infantry (inc a MG and AT infantry) and one Cavalry.

Believe me the score was closer than that as seen by the score at the end of the Russian 4th turn. Our left barely hung on. The keys were the Japanese center offensive and the lucky kill on the AC there and a few keys misses by the Russians in the end game. It is rare that the Japanese lose only one of the center tanks.

On a side note the Japanese used their allotted 2 Molotov Cocktails in the center and on their left but did not get the chance to use any on the right. There was little action on that flank but Jeronimon made the best of the lack of cards. He had Int rolls of ARM,STAR,STAR,ARM in the four turns when he did not get a card on that flank.

So a well played 4 player OL with visits from Johan (JJAZ) and Sam (sam1812).

We will be doing this again in 2 weeks, so if you have time, drop in.

I would love to play on Dec 10th, but don't know how much time I may allocate; depends on family priorities. Perhaps I'll drop in to replace someone. How much time does it last usually?

Usually longer than just hour or two. But if you can play at least a while, you're welcome. People don't mind if new players join mid-game, either.

It would be great to have a (almost) full compliment of players.

That has been a while ago. Smile

I do also enjoy the sessions with less players (game moves quicker and more for me to do) but to have (almost) 8 is also fun! Smile

Yes - it is great to have a full table.

Also, this scenario plays faster than most OLs and gives both sides a chance to attack.
