Designer: Philippe Naud and Laurent Closier
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The German operation codenamed “Wildente” used surprise to catch the Anglo-Norwegian units off-guard by barring their way south of Ranfjord. A steamer sailed up the fjord and landed 300 men and two guns in the small port of Hemnesberget. They could be resupplied by air and they threatened the Allied rear. Panicked by the boldness of the enemy landing, British High Command decided to evacuate by sea its units south of Ranfjord. The Norwegians were on their own. The only solution was a counterattack. With a few machine guns as their sole support and led by a spirited Danish officer, Captain Ellinger, they reached the first few houses of Hemnesberget. . .

2019-08-12(A) James Lowry vs Tracey Love In progress
2019-02-13(D) fabrizio da pra vs Marco Antonio Facchini Norwegian winI decided to setup forward to inflict maximum losses to the Germans, I think the Norwegians can win only by inflicting enough losses on the German. Thanks to very low rolls it worked.
2019-02-10(A) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S German winAndy started out with a bit of a hole on the south side of the map, hoping that a concealed first line squad on the building overlooking my entry could hold me off. James and I were playing the Germans together. We pushed very aggressively on the south side, with a small force heading north to try and hold some of Andy's troops in place on that flank. By turn three we were pretty much in position on the forests, with no casualties. From there our rolls heated up, and Andy's troops were not in a position to hold us off for long. By turn four we had taken out a good chunk of his troops with only two half squads being lost, and Andy threw in the towel. Scenario was okay, but nothing special. Seems like a pretty standard fighting withdrawal for the Norwegians.
2017-11-03(D) Dan Best vs Mike Bistodeau German win
2017-03-11(D) Paolo Cariolato vs Roberto De Fina Norwegian win
2017-01-14(A) David Garvin vs Jim Stahler Norwegian win
2015-12-20(D) Michael Dorosh vs Colin Emerson German winTight game; German suffered 9 VP by mid-game, meaning one more HS and leader loss would have resulted in a Norwegian win. However, as Norwegian I pulled back a bit into an elastic defence and the German was able to bull through and grab the necessary building hexes without suffering that last casualty. Tense and came down to last turn.
2015-12-20(A) Colin Emerson vs Michael Dorosh German winVery close game, which I was sure I was going to lose.2 back to back KIA attacks automatically broke 5 squads as I advanced through the trees. Played the last 3 turns with the Norwegians only needing to eliminate 1 Half Squad to prevent me from winning. Fate smiled on me, the Germans survived the attacks and managed to occupy all required building locations. Scenario writeup and aftermath don't line up with how the scenario is played????
2015-10-08(A) Alberto Griffa vs Enrico Catanzaro Norwegian win
2014-04-26(A) Fred Ingram vs Chris Bryer German winPlayed giving the Norwegians the balance. He had his squad manning the MMG with the 9-2 go berzerk - which basically lost the game for him. With the MMG manned the flank was sealed. Once the MMG was unmanned, a squad got throguh capturing 6 buildimg hexes by himself
2014-02-03(D) Aaron Sibley vs Rosta Norwegian win
2013-07-21(A) Don Lazov vs Craig Kennedy In progress
2012-03-31(A) Fred Ingram vs Are Erlandsen German winThis definitely had a German domination feel, As long as the German does not get close to the CVP cap, he has the firepower and the maneuver room to overcome the Norwegians. Half squads rushing at suspected dummies can open the game up well, with any real units usually losing their subsequent FF opportunities - allowing units behind to move up. Once a toehold in the town by at least turn 4, and it's all over. I don't think the Norwegian balance would have helped here
2011-09-02(D) Andy Beaton vs Tom West Norwegian winGermans just couldn't break the 9-2/MMG linchpin of the defense, and foundered on the flanking attempts.
2010-11-30(D) Luke Sineath vs Mark Humphries German win
2009-10-12(A) David Ramsey vs Will Waller German winNorwegian 9-2 died on the 2nd turn, and both Allied MMGs broke within 3 turns. The up front defence needed more luck to hold
2009-06-07(D) Jan Fransson vs Robert Maglica Norwegian win
2006-08-25(D) Jim Rupp vs Bill Carroll German win
2003-01-25(D) Bill Brodie vs Aaron Cleavan German winAdding old ROAR records
