Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Sixth Army was being bled white amidst the ruins. The rifle strength of whole companies was often reduced to little more than a squad in an attempt to take a single house. The battle lines were now drawn through the hallways of individual buildings rather than by street or city blocks. The Germans decided to bring in fresh specialized units for the final assault; five battalions of elite pioneers specially trained in street fighting and veterans of the bitter street battles of Voronezh were summoned to take the last stubborn outposts between the machine shops of the Barrikady Gun Factory and the Volga. However, the pioneers of Major Rettenmaier had never seen a battle the equal of that for the “Commissar’s House”.

2019-11-27(A) Ken Rutkowski vs Bill Thomson Russian winWasted too many turns getting to the fortified building. As a result probably 80 percent of the Russian squads were in the building on multiple floors. There are a number of things I would do differently next time.
2019-02-08(D) Jeff B vs Phil Wentworth Russian winGermans got pasted pretty good on the opening turn, losing 2.5 squads (including an engineer) and their 9-2. Had a 6-2-8 not gone berserk across the street from a gaggle of Germans the Russians would've only lost a HS. Turn 2 saw the Germans close in on the House, killing a squad and taking another 1.5 squads captive. The next three turns were relatively blood-free as the Germans mostly spent their time consolidating their positions to assault the House en masse from three sides. Unfortunately for them they still hadn't dislodged the outside MG nests, who were covering the streets with FLs. Turn 7 saw the fireworks fly again. At one point while FPF the Germans created two heroes. As heroes are wont to do though, one would be dead by the end of the turn. Further excitement was added when a Russian HS prisoner killed its guard in CC, creating a conscript in the German backfield. The Germans did manage to gain a foothold in the House. The three turns of consolidation proved to be too much of a luxury though as, at game end, the Germans only managed to take the ground floor. With encirclement in effect and a relatively strong force yet (though both FTs flamed out early after being saved for the House assault), I think with one more turn they would've had it. Fun game as always.
2018-09-25(D) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston Russian winCame down to one hold-out hex on the second level of the Commisar's House. The Russians had the stairways effectively blocked on the last turn so the Germans couldn't get into position to break the units in the final hex going through the building, and a desperate German flank attack around the building was broken, thus giving the victory to the Russians.
2018-08-03(D) Jonathan Kapleau vs Holland, Donald Russian win
2018-06-30(D) Michal Bonaventura vs kandelabr German win
