Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
During the destruction of Army Group Center, the German front became pierced at many points. As the battlefield situation became more fluid, reliable information was of crucial importance to both sides. In the midst of the fighting an unusual clash occured on the outskirts of Lepeló unusual in that both recon forces were commanded by seasoned, aggressive leaders. Although the primary responsibility of both groups was to avoid contact and obtain battlefield intelligence, the aggressive nature of both commanders prevailed. A vicious firefight ensued. . .

2019-12-07(A) Kirill Oreshkin vs son German win
2019-07-13(A) Jeff B vs John Malaska Russian winThese types of AFV-only scenarios are never my favorites, usually because one side has the onus of having to accomplish VC while the other side can just sit back and let the attacker come to them. That was exactly what I did as the Russians - sat and waited at the goal line. The plan changed however when John found a nice spot for one of his ACs behind a wall with a LOS to two of my tanks. I kicked into motion with one (whom I didn't even think would have a LOS) and then the other (whom I definitely didn't think would have LOS). Had I known they both had LOS I would've taken my chances exchanging shots. As it was he then was able to move another AC up to shock one of these while the other got away. That swung the onus on me and pushed me into action. I was able to position three thanks with LOS to his lead AC and knock it out on Turn 4 (it happened to have his AL). The balance swung back to the Germans again though when my UK became a kill and he knocked out another, but this allowed me to shock two of his remaining three ACs. These were then easy pickings to knock out the next round, leaving him one AC to take on my three tanks, and that just wasn't happening.
2019-01-20(A) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S Russian winThis was a bit one-sided. I spent some time before Andy showed up planning out where I wanted to set my defenses. Everything went pretty well as I had planned it, and Andy struggled a bit with a good approach. He finally decided to try and push in, hoping to lose one of his vehicles in exchange for breaking up my interlocking defenses. I got a good little run of shots though, and by Turn 4 all his Pumas were either wrecked or shocked.
2018-12-14(D) David Stoffey vs John Gorkowski German win
2018-12-09(D) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S German winWe played a little fast and loose in an attempt to get our heads around the tank rules. I think we did a reasonable job of it, and I ended up having one tank left on board when the smoke cleared. Excited to give this one another go.
