Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German (SS)Polish
From the very beginning of the invasion, Polish defenses had proven to be woefully unprepared for the German onslaught. The blitzkrieg tactics employed by the German armored columns allowed great territorial gains in just a few short days. As the panzers raced across the Polish countryside conducting their breakthrough-and-pincer maneuvers, it ultimately fell upon the German infantry to mop up areas of bypassed Polish resistance. One such operation occurred in the farm community of Pabianice, just outside the city of Lodz. As the German Eighth Army advanced along the eastern and western flanks of Lodz, the grenadiers of Die Leibstandarte were sent into Pabianice to clear out its staunch garrison.

2019-03-07(A) O Ramaille vs German (SS) winFirst FtF play using VASL. The Polish decided to strongly defend the building area by retreating the advanced units. The German attackaed in two groups. The main one along the South border reached the woods without suffering any loss. A small group advanced along the North border to distract the defenders and eventually surround them. The German direct assault was quite successful and they took hold of the main building in CC. With several routed units and the German firmly holding the area, the Polishes conceded the game at the end of turn 5.
2019-02-18(A) David Garvin vs Robert Schaaf Polish win
2019-02-05(A) Mark Peak vs Dale Wetzelberger Polish winDale just killed me! I could not get close enough to take anything out and his 5 or so snake eyes just did me in. I couldn't roll smoke and had to get aggressive and it fell apart fast.
2019-01-26(D) David Garvin vs David Damrel Polish win
2018-11-28(A) Jeff B vs Mark Peak Polish winMark played a fine defensive game, not shooting until he saw the whites of my eyes (and even then sometimes not). It certainly didn't hurt the cause any that two Polish squads didn't shoot less than "5" all day and that German MCs were lousy. He had just the right feel for when to withdraw and reposition too, not always an easy task. In the end the Germans still had a sliver of a chance, but a key Polish SR allowed them to sneak a MMC into the winners' circle by surviving a 6+1 unpinned, which they did.
