So you’ve got your big battle on one table and nearing the end of the game, life-us interrupt-us you have to put off finishing it for a few days.
So, as your game table is motorized, you lift it up to the ceiling, then underneath it, set up another smaller game table say 4×4 ft., for a small unit action because you want to see what would happen.
- One player is given five Russian rifle squads, one lend/lease halftrack and a commander, with the mission of taking a building near a cross road.
- The opponent is German defending with about 4-5 squads and an MG-32 in a sandbag wall outside the building.
