2018-06-11(D) Lee Hyde vs Max Malm Russian winLucky Russian success in taking out some rash German tankers early on left it finely poised with only two functioning German AFV's in T4. A min 2 being required to hope for victory, and the KV-2 despatched the last required for a Russian victory.
2017-07-07(A) Greg Krane vs solo German winRotten Russian luck! On the first turn the Russian AT gun Malfed and got a six on the repair roll the very next Rally Phase. The KV-2 couldn't buy a hit on he German attackers and then at the end of turn 3 its MA malfed and then...6 on the repair roll! With the linchpin of its defense removed the Panzers destroyed the remaining Russian AFV and quickly surrounded and cut off the remaining Russian infantry.
2017-01-22(D) O Ramaille vs Russian winWith the huge KV-2 Russian tank covering most of the open ground, the German decided to advance through the woods. They advance slowly with support of the panzers. Soon, some Germans gun malfunctioned, forcing even one of the panzer to be recalled. A Russian ATR transformed another into a wreck. And the KV-2 was coming that way. The shots rebound on is armour and smoke did not prevent another kill. Meanwhile, the Russian infantry suffered heavy losses and had to give ground. The German conquered one then two buildings. A Panzer got mired trying to force entrance on a building. And the hidden Russian gun smoked another Panzer. The battle was done. With only two controlled building and only one panzer mobile, the Germans losed this early battle.
2016-08-20(A) Tom Abromaitis vs Russian win
2015-06-27(D) Paul Messina vs Greg Schmidtgens Russian win
2014-08-25(D) leo zhu vs Erwin Lau German winKV-2 setup in a wrong location and make no use for the battle.
2014-01-25(D) Paul Messina vs Forrest Atterberry Russian winGreat scenario! I made a few crucial defensive fire attacks on Turn 6 that secured the victory but overall this was a super scenario that ebbed and flowed back and forth the entire game. A must play due to the unique "toys" that are included in the scenario.
2012-03-23(D) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites German win1st turn completed. Germans are moving through woods slowly and pouring on the fire against the Soviets in front of them. So bad as my Russkies are breaking and falling back. Not an auspicious start.
2011-12-31(A) Stefan C vs osterhausm German winRussian setup put KV-2 on the flank where it wasn't in a position to stop the german advance. Game ended turn 5 allied when the MA on the KV2 broke, 4 building hexes already captured with 4 German tanks left.
2009-02-28(A) derek pulhamus vs dan pulhamus Russian win
2009-01-15(A) Don Lazov vs Tim Klepaczyk Russian win
