General setting was an attack by a Finnish infantry battalion upon a hastily dug-in Soviet position occupied by two companies and supported by two T-26 and a 76mm Artillery Battery.
As a Finnish player and also the photographer, all the photos are from the Finnish perspective.
There are four objectives the Soviets are defending. The Finns need to hold all four to win. The Finnish companies are arrayed left to right in 1,2,3 order. A mortar section backs us up.
Company three before and after an artillery strike. Casualties evacuated, but the Finns keep advancing.
Companies 1 and 2 going in on the assault. The Soviets surprisingly evacuated the hill rather than take the cross-fire. The Soviet tanks have meanwhile begun to menace the Finns left flank.
At this time the Soviets tossed in the towel. The tanks were facing a tough maneuver roll, one infantry company was panicked with 75% casualties but the other was still in good shape but going to be facing Finns on two fronts. It was still a close run thing.

These are some 15mm Germans in greatcoats in the snow. Peter Pig figs. "Snow" is created by gluing minis to base, allow to set, apply Woodland Scenics Flex Paste, allow to set, apply watered down white glue and drop on Woodland Scenics Soft Flake Snow. Viola.
Bob, you wanted to know about my 10mm ACW figs. Here is sample picture. Infantry is mounted 4 figures on a 3/4" square stand. Figures are a mix of Perrin and AIM 10. At 6-8 stands to regiment, I have several divisions, CSA and USA, Infnatry and Cav. I have more unpainted. Willing to loan, sell or trade.
