About His Shadowy Sides ETO (id:#61772)

Designer: Erik Leander
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, Panzer-Division 6 and Kampfgruppe Seckendorff and Abteilung II, Panzer-Regiment 11)

2019-02-11(A) Scott Sherer vs D. Bruce Weston German winRussians got smacked around pretty good in this one. I brought the MMG and the MTR on my right flank with the idea to try to interdict the German reinforcements crossing the open ground, but that plan was ineffective. I managed to get a toe-hold in the village, capturing six of the nine buildings, but lost a KV-2 to a CH and malf'ed the other's MA. Repaired it eventually, but by that time, the Russian infantry had been decimated by determined German counter-attacks and I threw in the towel.

2015-04-03(D) Andy Beaton vs Oscar Fernandez Russian winGermans wiped off the board by turn 2 in the face of amazing Russian dice, compounded by a clear LOS I just did not see until it was too late.
