Played a quick game against Al today. 1500pts Soviets vs Japanese out of the new book. Al's had Jap figures for a while, so this was his first chance to use them in an official FoW list.
We played Pincer. It ended up being a little bit one sided - the Soviets didn't lose a single model in the end.
Al's list consisted of 3 full strength FV platoons with the suicide tank hunters, one engineer platoon, two field guns, two ATGs, and 2 HMGs.
I took 21 BT5s, 5 T-28s, and a full motorstrelk blob of 29 stands.
Next time, we're going to try with him on the attack and me with a strelk blob list and see if they fare better. Even with the Banzai charge and Human Bullet rules, the Nikuhaku teams never got into close combat - even though they went through the defensive fire, they just always took so much that they got killed to a man.
