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”.

Last Played:
2018-02-01(A) Pieter Van Innis vs Danny Peeters Russian winTook me too long to cross the streets due to bad smoke availibility checks. Still enjoyed it though!
2017-05-11(A) Dan Best vs Mike Bistodeau Russian win
2017-04-22(D) Jeff B vs Bronson Barnhart Russian winGermans spent too much time shooting rather than moving and, even with their monster kill stacks, tended to underperform. Their HMG spent half the game on the disabled list. When they did make a move toward the House they got ripped to shreds by the machine guns.
2017-01-26(D) David Garvin vs Jeff Buser German win
2016-10-07(D) Tom Abromaitis vs German win
2016-06-23(A) Jeff B vs Ryan Ellett German winGermans just had too much muscle for the Russians to handle.
2015-04-29(D) Andy Waller vs Jeff Luce Russian win
2015-01-09(A) Ed Bonilla vs German win
2013-11-04(D) Jeff B vs Ted Wilcox Russian winForget the chemist's shop and stock the House full, protected by MG trenches on the outside. A brilliant use of HIPs helped swing the balance.
2013-08-17(A) Davide Bendazzi vs Daniel Takai German win
2013-01-27(A) Richard Agnew vs solo German winThe Chemist's Shop fell easily, but the Germans were unable to breach the fortifacated Commissar's House. Of course, they didn't really need to after securing the Chemist's Shop, so the game was really never in doubt after turn 6.
2012-10-07(A) Michal Bonaventura vs In progress
2012-09-20(D) Luke Sineath vs Matt Pavone German win
2012-09-20(D) Luke Sineath vs German win
2012-07-22(D) Richard Carter vs Stephen German winExcellent game. I could have set up better. I think I spread out too much trying to cover too much ground. Germans overwhelmed my center. My right held out a bit but was eventually overpowered. I set up my HMG out of com's house and had to abandon it early in game. Still came down to last 2 turns though. Great scenario!
2011-08-07(D) Martí Cabré vs Eloi Soler Russian winA very exiting game. The German player took too long to assault the Commissar's House and he was a turn to short to control it (I had also HIP one squad there). Sewer movement, DC breaching, killer MG, lots of CC... everything was there!
2010-12-22(D) Nathan Beddes vs Jamey Cribbs German win
2010-10-18(A) Fred Ingram vs Jeff Coleman German winGerman won on turn 5 - just plainn overpowered the Russians
