2018-08-04(D) Stephen dedier vs Holt, Jim German winThis one was close fought. The Germans were overrunning the poor Russians when the ART went on a tear and mauled 2.5 squads and a leader. A couple of squads we holding out on the hill one in CC and another in a foxhole. Russian reinforcements managed to get into a good position behind and in the rubble. Start of the last Russian turn 1 Russian squad in CC in the victory buildng 1 Squad in a foxhole with a hero withn 2 of the victory building 3 squads in the Rubble and behind it. So i had 4 squads in position (3 needed for victory) and a CC. During the German d-fire 2x 4 +1 shots broke the unit in the foxhole and one behind the rubble and my other unit in CC was eliminated. Hope was lost with the Germans still having a turn to go. Great game though.

2015-10-10(D) Seumas Hoskins vs Pete Shelling Russian winRussian setup was concentrated on the objective point. The Germans lost the first 150 early with the INF Gun taking multiple shots at it. The second 150 rolled box cars for a smoke attempt on the Gun, forcing it into Recall. The Gun also had a solid shot on a German killstack in the woods. The German advance through the woods saw two leaders go heroic only to have both killed within moments during the same phase. The FT broke on its second use (the first merely revealed dummies) and the DC attempt on the Gun left the crew unharmed but rattled a 5-2-7 with them. The Germans successfully flanked a half-squad and leader around to DM the routed Russian groups, forcing them to bounce from cover to cover. The game ended after turn 5 with the Russians having 6.5 good order squad equivalents within the objective (including the Gun, MMG, and LMG) and the Germans having 1.5 squad equivalents still in good order.

2015-06-18(A) mark watson vs Ken Knott Russian winUgly start to this scenario. Couldn't pass a MC, couldn't survive a shot. Later things balanced out and Ken was getting diced for a while, but was able to hold on. Good scenario.
2014-12-11(D) X von Marwitz vs Alex Koestler Russian winLooked like an interesting scenario with very hard hitting German attackers that have to beat a quite numerous Russian force into submission, which receives a number of reinforcements. I played the Russians in this one. I set up most Russians up front with the intention to delay what I could early and then to fall back out of LOS, playing for time, in the hope of allowing at least some Russian reinforcements to enter without enemy interference. My opponent elected to enter the bulk of his forces on the southern flank. He was surprised that I placed a real sacrificial squad in the woods there. This squad, and more so the RFP it placed, were very effective in breaking 2.5 squads and pinning some more units. This allowed the Russian squad - duly broken by angry German advancing fire - to rout back one hex and not to die at once. A FL I had planned did not materialize as my MMG malfed on its first shot. During Russian Turn 1, I fell back with a considerable number of units, shifting my Schwerpunkt to the south, while skulking back with a few units to advance back to the front to make a direct rush for the Germans across OG risky. German Turn 2 saw some "volunteer" units dare the GG6, FF5, EE6 hexes that I covered with residual FP to make them unpleasant for would-be followers. With my visible fire options exhausted, the Germans pulled around one of their SPAs. This heralded the coming into action of the Russian gun. It killed the SPA with HEAT, conveniently not burining it, retaining ROF, Concealment, and HEAT. It used ROF (twice) to fire at German infantry forces during DPFh, wreaking such havoc (and still retaining concealment) that it survived any remaining German Advancing Fire. During Russian Turn 2 PFPh, that gun relentlessy continued the carnage, breaking both German 838s, and killing a previously created German Hero. At the end of this phase, the Germans had already lost one SPA, 2.5 squads, and the hero. 4 further German squad-equivalents, both 838s among them, were broken. One broken HS likely to be taken out during CC by ambush and the requirement to withdraw. The Russian MPh allowed me to massively block the path of the German advance and to secure safe entry for the Russian reinforcements. At this point, the Germnas conceded. Despite both of us having DR averages below 7, there's no doubt that I could make my low rolls count. Due to the early end, it is somewhat hard to tell, how the scenario would play out in general. Much hinges on whether the Germans can punch through the Russian line early or not as far as I can see. Good scenario nevertheless which is likely a bit pro Russian. It has not seen that many recorded playings at this point, so it might be a bit early to tell.
2014-11-29(A) Paolo Cariolato vs Andrea Pagni German win
2014-11-04(D) Richard Carter vs Kevin Killeen Russian winMy dice were way too hot to judge this scenario well. I played it as a fighting withdrawal which was fun.
