Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Finns, seeking restitution for the Winter War of 1939, had erupted across the borders and breached the Soviet Karelian front even as the crisis to the south of Leningrad came. In a desperate attempt to salvage something and form a new defense line along the Sestra River, orders went out to break off and retreat southward. One such unit was the 131st Border Battalion, which was to serve as a rearguard. At 1530, orders arrived releasing them to save themselves. . .if they could. Behind them a bakery was on fire, the town hall was ablaze, and ammunition was dwindling. Nevertheless, their young officers organized a fighting withdrawal towards the hills in an attempt to reach newly established lines.

2018-01-06(D) todd Rezack vs Peter Rogneholt Finnish winThe Russians were slaughtered as they tried to make a stand. Its best to stay on the move and make your way to the s end ofthe board rather then fighting was my experience. By the second turn the Finnish troops had almost wiped out the Boarder Bat.
2018-01-01(A) B-E Karlsson vs Russian In progress
2017-11-29(A) Jeff B vs Are Erlandsen Russian winMy Schwerpunkt push in the east hit an early snag when my overstacked hex in Z10 went down almost to a man from his HIP 8-1/447 MMG stack in R6. But Finns bounce back quickly, and by Turn 2 we were well on our way again to pushing down the board. I probably would've gotten away with it too if it wasn't for a pesky turn too long trying to exchange shots across the P-S street. As it was, Are played an almost perfect fighting withdrawal defense. He correctly calculated on Turn 5 that I would not have enough MF to get anybody off the board, so I did my best to position my men to make sure he didn't make it either. But he managed to sneak off two squads and a leader to seal the victory.
2017-11-19(D) Jeff B vs Phil Wentworth Russian winSome hot Russian dice withered away at the Finns from the opening moves, causing them an average body bag count of 1.5 squads each turn, while the Russians didn't take a casualty until the 4th turn (and that was only due to a failed interdiction MC). By the start of Turn 5 the Finns had just reached the edge of the cemetery and would have to cross a lot of open ground against a lined up and primed Russian defense that outnumbered them 3:2 (this not even counting the two HIP squads stuck back at the goal line) so they called it a day.
