January 26, 2008 @ Battlefront Paintball
, in Hubbard, Ohio. Field can be viewed here
Time for our mid-winter classic battle. This year's Stalingrad battle will have a few twists to make it a bit more realistic. The Russians will need to completely surround the city before they can attempt to capture it....and the Germans will have a growing relief army available to rescue von Paulus if he IS surrounded by the Russians.
If the Russians do surround Stalingrad, the German relief army will continue to grow larger since each German casualty in the city will respawn at Mansteins HQ outside the city in the Crimea. If the Russians take Stalingrad, they will be able to mobilize all their forces to repel the German relief force. If they don't, the Germans will have the Russians between two forces. MANSTEIN CAN SEND HIS RELIEF ARMY ANYTIME HE WANTS, AND HE CAN ATTACK FROM MORE THAN ONE DIRECTION
NO FOOTBALL THIS WEEKEND, and we are hoping for snow to add to the realism. There will also be caches of grenades, paintballs, smoke, etc. scattered around the field. Each army will need to capture certain objectives to obtain information on the location of these "Ammo Dumps". Should be another great engagement!
It's a day long affair, but hopefully a good one. Anyone else planning on attending?
