Note: Chip and Blake will be teaching summer classes to some young people and wargaming will be the subject. The kids will learn the rules of BKG, learn a little history with the games, and get to take home a unit at the end of the course. Wow! Yet more evidence that I was born way to early.
The scenario we setup was a German (Chip) vs. Soviet (me) 1000pt battle with a combined tank/infantry/cavalry units. Blake was willing to observe, teach and moderate.
My Soviet force included:
Commanding Officer (CO)
2x Headquarters (HQ)
2x Horse-drawn wagons
T-34 76 (early)
BA-10 recon unit

|The well-commanded Germans|
My infantry loaded onto the horse drawn wagons and inched toward the village while Chip's Germans moved quickly and easily due to his CO's high command rating (10 for his CO). The German tanks were able to pick off my tanks easily and the casualties started to mount. I had to resign the game because it had gotten late in the evening.
