2017-08-03(A) Jeff B vs Martin Marquis German winThe Germans managed to grab three buildings on their last turn to hit 13 and the win, but I think this one is a bit tough for them. They do not have a lot of time, and the Poles have just enough in heavy weaponry and vehicles to make the going very difficult. In our game the dice were quite lopsided in favor of the Germans but, even with that, it went right down to the end.
2017-02-13(D) patrick palma vs Sergio Diaz Polish win
2016-04-17(D) Martí Cabré vs Andy Beaton German winThis early war scenario was really weird. The German player recalled a score of vehicles for breaking his guns, he had such a strike of boxcars and 11s rolled, while the Polish player failed almost every shot for the first 4 turns, allowing the Germans to close in to the buildings. But the Germans must take 12 buildings, which are a lot, and in the end they needed to make use of all combined arms, using bypass freeze to bypass strong positions and max out double time movement to reach the last building on the last advance phase of the game. The Polish armor delayed the Germans a little, but was not decisive. Such a close game!
2015-08-08(A) Jim Kloss vs Bob Eury Polish winThe fact that all of the German AFV's MA had B11#'s had a major impact on the outcome of this battle. The malf's started on my very first attack DR! By turn 4, all of the German AFV'S were MA disabled, immobilized, wrecked, or abandoned. The poles executed a brilliant pincers move with their reinforcing armor by entering each group on a different board edge. By the time the German Schwerpunkt made it into the village on board 17, they were about to be trapped in a vise. Though defeated, I still had fun! A panzer IVD, my kingdom for a panzer IVD!
2014-09-14(D) Gordon Jupp vs Nick Holmshaw Polish winReally good scenario with loads happening, Nick dedided not to use the motorcycles and ended up coming up a bit short as he got held up by my HMG on the hill. Both sides suffered from multiple armament breakdowns on the AFV's, but great fun!
