Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
As the Russian 8th Guards Army was expanding its bridgehead on the Vistula, they met with stiff German resistance. The Germans mounted a number of counterattacks in an effort to eliminate the Russian toehold on the west bank, leading with the Hermann Goering Division, which had just been brought up from Warsaw. After six German attacks failed to achieve the needed breakthrough, a seventh assault supported by Tiger tanks forced the situation to its inconclusive end.

2018-04-07(D) David Garvin vs Larry Maxwell German winWow. What a match! Came down to the final turn and final roll. A 478 squad was able to find TWO Panzerfausts, needing 4 To Hit and took down my IS 2. Great match!
2018-02-26(D) Tom Kearney vs Eric Alleman Russian winIS-2 Bounding FF killed a Tiger II. Wow!

2017-07-27(A) B-E Karlsson vs Russian German win
2017-07-16(D) Gordon Jupp vs Nick Holmshaw Russian winThe Russian ATG was set up in the large wheat field behind the VC building on Bd 4. The German Tanks advanced towards it but were then lured back by the IS2 trying to get behind them. They both presented rear shots and were taken out in one phase by the ATG. With those and the loss of a HT the CVP was breached!
2017-06-27(A) Jeff B vs Ryan Ellett German winI am very surprised this scenario has not received more play as it is extremely fun and highly replayable. Just as in the previous post, the Russians were eventually eliminated to the last unit, though they made a tough last stand around the bridges. A feisty 6-2-8 in the gully was particularly tough to root out. The stone building fell on Turn 4 and, in my mind, needs a very heavy garrison as I believe it is the key. The remaining units should probably try to dig some foxholes around the bridges and fall back into the gully when things get hot. The IS-2 will probably be needed to shore up the defense here at some point, though in our game it ran into low ammo on its first shot and MALFd on its second. There is just no good answer to counter the two King Tigers and they should dictate the show wherever the go.
2016-10-25(D) Tom Abromaitis vs German winSeemed like there was too much time for the Germans. Every single Russian unit eliminated...
2016-06-18(A) Scott Sherer vs Daniel Soukup Russian winWay too aggressive as the Germans and my opponent made me pay. Busted CVP cap on Turn 2!
2015-01-10(D) Andy Beaton vs Will Willow Russian winOne KT gone home with a malfed MA, another immobilized by my AT gun and killer 6-2-8's in the board 5 woods that CC'd every German who came near them put Will in a corner he was unable to claw his way out of.
2015-01-06(D) B-E Karlsson vs German Russian win

2012-08-20(A) Lee Hyde vs Nick Carter Russian winFirst session, and only my second ASL game in 'anger' so to speak. Got to Turn 5 and still to find Russian AT Gun still HIP. IS2 defending bridges, but have Routed MMC and SMC from one Foxhole also in covering position. Russian forces in stone building (other VP) suffering attrition with HMG now unmanned. Hope to complete soon, or transfer to Vasl. Finally finished off in Feb 2013 ! Great game, with the Axis all but eliminating the Russkies and having the game, dare I say, all but won. Then in some last turn madness, inexperience I covered the last bridge location with so much FP no one would survive moving into it. I had had a unit there but they had been forced to Rout away, so understood it was technically still under axis control. What I failed to allow was for my opponent to simple ignore his movement phase, but simply Advance from an adjacent gully into the Bridge hex. Lesson learned, play to the very bitter end and assume nothing ! Just makes you want to get right back up and have another go.
2012-06-23(D) Raoul Duke vs MH DrawAbandoned due to lack of time after turn 5.
2007-04-26(D) Jesus Pie vs David Galan Russian win
