Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Although desperate to buy time to allow the 45th Division to be ferried across the Volga at night, the Russians had no more reserves. During the 27th, the shattered 118th Rifle Regiment had a bit of luck. To their surprise, they recovered three tanks from the front lines, one with a functional flamethrower. Anxious to buy time and spread their newfound joy, the Russians threw together these tanks and sent this hastily formed armored reserve to counterattack. Supported by artillery and katyusha batteries, the Russians launched their attack in the pre-dawn twilight. . .

2012-11-03(A) Vic Lauterbach vs ML Russian winLV hindrance, a Commissar and patience helped the Russians who lost their tanks but were tough as ever in CC and got a hard-fought win. Fun to play a small-scale scenario on the RB board; those big hexes are stack friendly.
2011-01-13(D) Fred Ingram vs Jeff Coleman Russian winThe low visibility hindrance made moving in the open a little more palatable. However, most of the troops were walking wounded and were not going very far very fast. The commisar was not too friendly, providing 3 CVP to the Germans. There was a close call with the sniper moving right next to my 10-3. Mines did not do much the whole game. The 37L HT was recalled by a sniper, denying me the VP as I could not destroy it. I did close combat a stug early on. The 10-3 stack was formidable on attack and defense (and was a constant CC threat). I was over on Turn 4 as most infantry was mopped up and the FT tank was going to go tank hunting.
2008-09-20(D) Michael Rodgers vs Jeff Wasserman German winRussian had some bad luck with his tanks.
