Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The German army was frozen in place. Bitter cold and deep snow made the thinly-clad Wehrmacht dig in and fight first for warmth, then the Russians. The Siberians were well equipped for war in the snow, but the Soviet High Command still threw them piecemeal at the German strongpoints. The much-heralded Soviet winter counteroffensive was in fact a series of small-unit actions amongst the white and evergreen of the Russian winter. The raid on the crossroads northwest of Staritsa was just one of many. To protect the critical crossroads, the Germans had cut a maze of trenchworks through the snow. If not in comfort, at least in cover, sentries peered into the snowy distance. Deep silence. Then, the sound of tank engines. The white, boxy shapes of T-34s with their snowmen-like supporting troops emerged from the east heading straight for the crossroads.

2019-03-08(A) Juhani Bonsdorff vs self German winRussians exited 2 AFVs with 1 left mired in trench. German Infantry suffered heavy casualties but a leader, squad and MMG was just able to prevent Russian infantry from exiting board.
2018-11-17(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Russian winQuick playing scenario as Dan and I finished in roughly two hours. I muffed the exit location right off the bad and moved straight ahead before realizing I had to exit in the southeast corner. Dan's 9-2 and MMG wrecked my infantry and killed all but one squad and the 8-0. tanks all managed to exit and I managed to steal the win.
2017-02-22(A) David Garvin vs Logan Stallings German win
2017-01-05(D) rene cote vs MRosberg DrawThe extreme winter rules do make a difference. The Panzer flamed one T34 but malfunctionned after. The AT gun broke on first shot. Couldn't quell the onrush of Siberians enough.
2016-11-28(A) Alberto Griffa vs Darrell Wright Russian win
