Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Operation Barbarossa progressed as planned, but repeated Russian counterattacks by units supported by heavy tanks met occasional success. The heavily armed and armored KV-2s seemed impossible to handle for the unprepared Germans. One of these attacks prompted the hasty retreat of Panzer-Abteilung 65. - - - - "About His Shadowy Sides" pits KV-2s against short-barelled Panzer IVs in a 7.5-turn meeting engagement set on board 17 and 19. Outgunned, the German panzers may still outmaneuver their powerful but ponderous opponents.
Attacker: Russian (2nd Tank Division)
Defender: German (Panzer-Abteilung 65, Pnzer-Division 6 and Kampfgruppe Seckendorff with Abteilung II, Panzer-Regiment 11)

2018-01-03(D) Christian Knudsen vs Lawrence Davies German winThis is an interesting scenario, but heavily pro-German, unless all 4 PzIV run out of smoke early. Otherwise they can just take turns smoking off the KV-2s all game. The Russians lack the infantry strength to force the Germans out of the buildings. I rated my enjoyment level as "poor", but that is no reflection on my opponent, who was a lot of fun to play. Just not the best scenario, imho.
2017-11-03(D) patrick palma vs Juan German win
2017-10-11(D) Jason Wert vs Gabe Wert Russian winTough match for the Germans. The northern attack did well and eliminated the russian front, but the KV-2 were deadly to the tanks and original infantry. Game conceded after 4th Tank broke MA and then went down in CC
2016-09-04(D) fabrizio da pra vs Edo Giaroni Russian winIt went down to the last turn, the Russians were unable to get the houses but the last standing KV-2 was able to survive alot of CC get out of it, move in front of my last surviving tank who failed motion attempt and SD and also smoke in the prep fire phase (I need a 9 or less to place smoke and be out of sight) and kill my last tank. Very good game those two KV-2 kept rolling 2 and 3 all the game hitting my tanks and infantry even if they were in the smoke and needing to change VCA. Heroes of the Soviets Union really
2015-03-19(D) Russell Dewhurst vs Paul Franklin-Bihary German winSeemed tough for the Russians, but the Germans have to watch not to lose too many AFV.
