Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
After two weeks of delaying actions and counterattacks, Finnish forces had now reached the prepared main defense works known as the Mannerheim Line. However, the defenses at Kirvesmäki, consisted of little more than barbed wire and a few old concrete strongpoints. Having taken up the front line positions at Kirvesmäki three days earlier, 1st Battalion, Infantry Regiment 30 prepared to meet the Soviet attacks without any anti-tank weapons except mines, Molotovs, and explosives. On 15 December, after a three hour artillery preparation, the Soviets attacked with an infantry regiment supported by 30 tanks.

2015-07-25(A) Michael Rodgers vs Phillip Seymour Finnish winMy Saint Louis round 4: Phillip Seymour (of Santa Barbara, CA) and I played 163 STOPPED COLD. I had the Russians by bid. Finn defense was in center and on Finn left, so I sent all the infantry up the Finn right on the ice. I made the mistake of taking a commisar, who killed several squads. My tanks worked to tie up the Finn MG nests while my infantry ran and took casualties. My FT tank went out on its first shot, inflicting only a PTC on the HMG. My tanks went down over 4 turns variously by CC, MG fire and TWO DC attacks, one of which was thrown. Although I still had enough stuff (but only 1 tank) near the exit area, Phillip had moved enough Finns to block the exit area that I saw that I could not win, so I conceded.
