Some Chechen Fighters broke cover, advancing across the tramline to take up better firing positions on the approaching Russians. Additionally, the Chechens received reinforcements in the shape of a fully loaded BMP-2, which immediately opened fire on targets across the river.

Everything was converging on the tramline now. Despite heavy losses on both sides, the fighting was bitter and intense. A Russian grenade launcher team laid accurate fire on the signal box, killing four Chechens in the process.

The fight for control of the tramline intensified, with Russian armour blazing away with greater efficiency, killing the Chechen local commander, as he crossed the line in support of his troops. In response, the Chechens blunted the attack with effective RPG and MG fire.

As darkness fell, the Chechen Fighters were stalwart in the defence of their homeland and despite losing their commander, they continued to control both ends of the tramline and its subway system which provided a vital supply line for ammunition and food to the frontline.

Many thanks to @RobJonesHistory for making the trip to ShedHQ, a much improved performance in commanding the orc invaders. This scenario absolutely went to the wire and the Chechens narrowly avoided losing control of the supply line. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did Rob, cheers 👍🏻

Having been fortunate to see the table in person I can honestly say that the photos (as good as they are) donít do it justice  :-* :-* :-*

Them fellers look great.  Chartering (stealing?) a bus is an interesting way to get to the fight!

Having seen this collection first hand, the photos (although excellent) donít do the figures and terrain justice
