Nice to see someone playing a scenario from Vyazma or Bust!
Here, fellow Lardy Vaggelis plays #2A: The Bridge at Urk in 6mm. Will the Germans manage to find a way through to outflank Sychevka? Will the Soviet commander survive the disgrace of his last battle? It all happens around the bustling metropolis that is Urk. Click on the pic below to see the story unfold...

Those of you who follow this site regularly will remember that battle four in Benito's Vyazma or Bust! campaign had ended in a draw. Votes were called for, and the overwhelming response was for Benito to play the game again as if the Germans had renewed their assault on Yelna the next day.
Here's the report of what happened. Another close game!
Everyone is going Vyazma or Bust crazy! Not only do we have Benito submitting battle reports faster than I can get them loaded up, but here's a great report by Brian Weathersby from a game featuring scenario 2A: the Bridge at Urk.
A couple of battle reports from Norseygamer. These are both played solo in 20mm on an enormous 8" by 4" table!
Both are from scenario packs. The first is our first AAR from the new Blenneville or Bust! supplement (see below): British tanks and infantry attempt to capture Avaux.
Avaux from Blenneville or Bust!
Vyazma from Vyazma or Bust!
The second is from the Vyazma or Bust! supplement: the climatic battle in the campaign set on the outskirts of Vyazma. The Germans are attacking, and get a bit of a shock when the Soviet armoured train de-cloaks!
The next scenario pack updated for IABSM3 is "Vyazma or Bust".
Set in Russia in the autumn of 1941, Vyazma or Bust contains over a dozen scenarios that may be played individually, or for greater enjoyment as part of a linked campaign: 126 pages of high quality wargaming.
A battle report from Martin Bailey added to the Tales from Vyazma sub-section. The Soviets get a bloody nose near Belyj.
