2017-10-09(D) Jeff B vs Scott Sherer German (SS) winVery fun scenario. Midgame everything was going according to plans for the Poles, having funneled the Germans through the middle of the board with their wire placement. The 9/10 road was guarded with a firelane, while those Germans who managed to make it across were hit from the other side with the other MMG. But Turn 5 saw a big break for the Germans when this nest was eliminated, opening the center of the board up nicely for them to move across in force. About this time their OBA decided to become the menace it was meant to be as well. Things were looking quite grim late in the game for the Poles. Their only hope was answering OBA of their own. Thankfully they managed to call some harassing fire down at the goalline. On the very last turn the Germans needed to get off 3 more VPs, and a brave squad survived OBA in the woods and a trio of shots to make it off for the win.
2017-10-09(A) Scott Sherer vs Jeff Buser German (SS) winAgree with Jeff...very fun scenario with several swings in momentum. As the Germans, I came on from the top and center of board 5 (the German left flank). Used the INF gun to try to dissuade the Poles off of Hill 498, but then promptly hooked it up when they left and they went right back up to the summit to harass the German attack. Getting across the road on the far side of the woods-gully was key, and I was feeling pretty good about my chances once I got into the village en force. However, the Polish artillery started to find the range and broke several of my units with harassing fire, causing the final turn to be quite exciting as I was just able to sneak off enough VP for the hard-fought victory.
2015-04-25(D) Richard Carter vs Ivan Kent Polish winHad fun with this one. I won in the end due to a lucky 8 +3 shot that mortally wounded a heroic leader and broke 2 1/2 squads. I set my wire up through the woods. He tried to come up both flanks once through the wire, but I had some good shots and his 8 morale guys just kept breaking! It's a really fun scenario. The OBA was pretty negligible in our game. He got one SMOKE mission down before 2 red cards and I lost my field phone with the first radio contact attempt! I had also wounded his leader w/ the phone so he had a hard time getting up to the front.
2014-12-07(A) Martí Cabré vs Eoin Corrigan German (SS) winI first moved some units to detect the Polish wire and once I saw it covered all the map I launched the bulk of my forces on the Polish left, with a couple of good MG stacks on the center to stop a possible flanking option for the Poles. I quickly set up my arty and fortunately I could rout the Poles on the first hill, taking it with my infantry with some losses. The OBA fired a couple of good missions that really helped. From the first hill I then fired some covering smoke and some big MG stack fire to cover my units running on my extreme right until they were bypassing the woods by the second hill. I had used the vehicles to freeze some Pole defenders and did it again and managed to break his last good MG stack with an OVR, still having one turn left to go. It's fun to play these scenarios where you have to move a lot and you have many tactical options. Also having many leaders protect you from sniper attacks.
2013-10-14(A) John Van Natta vs Jerry German (SS) winJerry set up his wire in the open ground on his left and right, leaving the board 5 woods completely open. I brought in all my forces through the woods with my armor on his left. He was able to move all his forces to the middle to counter me, but I managed to land my OBA and clear out the hill on his left. Once this happened, I moved the bulk of my force to exploit this and left a few squads and the 9-2 to tie up his forces around the 3M2 building. This tactic worked as I was able to force the flank and head toward the board edge. His only remaining squad on that side died in close combat and I exited 16 VP off the board edge on my final movement phase. This was the second playing of this scenario in a month and I really enjoyed it both times.
