Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
German tactics failed inside the confines of Stalingrad as the Russians were able to dig in and fight from every building. The confines of the city stifled manoeuvre, and German superiority in artillery, air power, and armor were rendered ineffective as the infantry of both sides intermingled while fighting for each block of the city. This was Rattenkrieg the war of the rats.

2017-10-13(D) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites German win
2017-05-12(D) Seumas Hoskins vs Dean Russian winRussians focused defenses mostly on eastern side while Germans attempted a blended approach. Fierce fighting in the north led to a crippled German killstack while conscript skulking in the far southwest kept the flamethrower from reaching the objective buildings.
2017-04-23(D) Louis Langdeau vs Andrew S German winA combination of overly aggressive usage of FPF with my conscripts, and some truly horrific rolls, left me with 4 GO squads on the back half of turn two. We called it after I lost another two squads in CC.
2017-03-12(A) Jim Rupp vs James L. Russian winTried to do a quick turn on this scenario, but ended up calling it after two hours. The German's dice just didn't want to roll good. Lots of breaks and no MCs/Ks when firing.
