In your base, ignoring your logic.

Some caveats before reading. Both of the players are very new to Bolt Action and the Soviet player had to fudge an army list in order to fill out to 1,000 points.

Very fascinating to read. I had no idea you could take two first lieutenants (unless I'm silly and you meant a lieutenant + an assistant)

I tend to shy away from making my support units veteran (regular at highest) but this battle was pretty cool. Thank you for this

The dice shall decide your fate...
