A German plane has come down into a frozen Russain lake, both sides are interested. A German medical platoon known as the Cold Custard Brigade with some Para support vs. a Soviet rifle platoon.
Once again the Soviets stay in the fight. Their scouts storm into the woods and engage the Paras in close combat, meanwhile the epic brawl in the middle continues, minor damage is caused to a German armoured car. As the German term arrives, they bottle it and run, victory for the boys in red!

During Operation Veritable an attack took place on the
town of Winneckendonk by the 2nd Lincolns and the Scots
Guards of the 6th Guards Tank Brigade. The town was a
defensive node garrisoned by the Para Lehr regiment
(heavily armed with panzerfausts) and a battalion of Fortress
troops supported by self propelled guns. Both sides
had ample artillery support but no air support.
British Forces (3000pts)
• One company Scots Guards
• One troop Honeys (Reece)
• 1 battalion infantry
German Forces (2000pts)
• 1 Battalion of Fallschrimjager
• 1 Battalion of Fortress Troops
• 2 x 88mm
• Many 50mm ATGs
Both sides face breaktests, the Germans at -3 the Brits at -1, the Germans pass and the British fail handing an unlikely victory to the Germans!
