The Red Tide: A look at Soviet Infantry in Bagration

The Red Tide: A look at Soviet Infantry in Bagration
Infantry can be sometimes overlooked but when you consider that historically the humble ground pounding foot soldier was the backbone of the Red Army. With that in mind let’s go over the details about the basic infantry choices in the awesome new Bagration: Soviet book.

The Red Tide: A look at Soviet Infantry in Bagration...

The first in our series of three Bagration books is Bagration: Soviet covering the Soviet forces on the Eastern Front in 1944.This book is jam packed full of interesting Soviet Formations and Units, as well as plenty of background, and three new river crossing themed missions.

The Bagration: Soviet book starts with background covering the pivotal events of Operation Bagration, the Soviet Army’s massive offensive against the Germans centred on Byelorussia that began on 22 June 1944.

Detour: WWIII Soviets
With the launch earlier this week of the new WWIII: Soviet book the Big Four Of Late War put down their World War II projects for a few weeks and switched gears to work on some new armies.

So as expected Casey, Wayne and Victor knocked out some great looking Soviet T-80 forces. Click on the links below to check them out.

Chris and Wayne also faced off in an epic two part battle report, the first two turns filmed in advance, with the epic nail biting conclusion streamed live on our Twitch channel.

Army Building With the New Soviet Army Deal

Army Building With the New Soviet Army Deal
With the launch of the WW3 Soviet, I thought I would take a look at how could a new player or someone on a budget, could get a force on the table that would be competitive or at least hold its own with such iconic equipment as the T-80, BMP-3, Hind helicopter and Frogfoots.  For the new player, it opens the door to playing WW3 without needing to buy, assemble or paint too much and get into playing the game quicker.

So, if we look at what we get in the excellent value starter set, that might help decide what formation to run.  The starter set contains the following:
