Russian / PartisanGerman
Following the Russian winter counteroffensive, the Germans were forced to fall back to isolated pockets in an attempt to survive both the Russians and the Weather. In the resulting gaps, the Russians found useful employment for their cavalry in resupplying partisans. Occasionally, however, the Germans would sortie out from their pockets in an attempt to disrupt these Russian operations. On one such occasion, a recon element of the First Panzer Regiment broke up a planned partisan-cavalry operation, and frustrated their attempts to re-establish themselves in the town. The Russians reacted strongly and threw in the only immediately available reserve; an airborne drop by a battalion of the 204th Parachute Brigade. Soon the Germans found themselves in a wild melee with partisans, cavalry, and paratroopers.

2018-04-28(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Russian / Partisan winA Winter Melee is without doubt one of the top 3 scenarios ever made for SL/ASL. I have played it numerous times, but tonight's game went down to the final Close Combat of the German Turn 10 Phase. At one point, Three German Heroes were all that was left in the 2 story building. They decided to charge a 6-2-8 in close combat and died gloriously. This was a three player game with Dan Best and Dave Mareske on the Russians and myself with the Germans. We played it Cardboard via SKYPE and had an absolute blast.

2016-03-17(A) Dave Mareske vs Mike Bistodeau Russian / Partisan winParas dropped early and caused an early win.
2014-11-29(A) Jesus Pie vs Eloisol Russian / Partisan win
2013-06-20(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best Russian / Partisan winPlayed as a 4 man during the Texas ASL Team Tournament with team mates, Mike Bistodeau (Russian Paras), Doyle Motes (Cossacks) and myself as the Partisans against Dan Best's German defense.
2013-04-17(A) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites German winJust started this one tonight. Looking forward to a good game.
2012-12-07(A) Russell Dewhurst vs Gordon German winFTF at Epsom Games Club, Adam as Cossacks and me as Partisans/Paratroopers. Turns 4 onwards I took over the whole side on VASL. Cossacks and Partisans almost wiped out early; excellent drop for the paras, the battle swung to the Germans; once the paras had regrouped I thought I was odds-on for the win, but I couldn't get any hits and the German HMG in the tower was repeatedly lethal.
