My fiancee and I made this. It isn't perfect, but this is a "first draft." It took a very long time to make, and isn't even complete! The moves come from a replay I found somewhere or another, credits to be provided when we make the full thing. Enjoy, feedback appreciated!

Jeebus that was my first thought. Awesome idea though!

(As for tactics, I'm not a big fan of the Prep Fire of the two stacks of Germans for the first, what, three turns?)

Was I the only one who couldn't get past this sentence?

Great lady. She's a keeper!

She's an ASL fanatic, destined to win a few tournaments! She wins pretty regularly against me, at least.

Excellent.

One thing might help the narrative flow. Put index cards (or such) in a corner showing turn number and phase. Always a critic!! cool

OUTSTANDING!

I tried to do something like this for a college film class in the early 1980's, but, yeah, it's extremely time-consuming and, well, the project had to be finished before the end of the semester ...

That's a good idea. Also we want to have a resid marker originate in the firing unit's hex and travel to the target. That would take forever! But it would be very cool.

FWIW, I didn't have any trouble following the residual fire (first, the First/Final fire marker appeared on the firing unit, then the residual marker on the target).

Perhaps another edition, where postprocessing makes it look like the Russians shot first?
