Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
The Finns, seeking restitution for the Winter War of 1939, had erupted across the borders and breached the Soviet Karelian front even as the crisis to the south of Leningrad came. In a desperate attempt to salvage something and form a new defense line along the Sestra River, orders went out to break off and retreat southward. One such unit was the 131st Border Battalion, which was to serve as a rearguard. At 1530, orders arrived releasing them to save themselves. . .if they could. Behind them a bakery was on fire, the town hall was ablaze, and ammunition was dwindling. Nevertheless, their young officers organized a fighting withdrawal towards the hills in an attempt to reach newly established lines.

2017-11-19(D) Jeff B vs Phil Wentworth Russian winSome hot Russian dice withered away at the Finns from the opening moves, causing them an average body bag count of 1.5 squads each turn, while the Russians didn't take a casualty until the 4th turn (and that was only due to a failed interdiction MC). By the start of Turn 5 the Finns had just reached the edge of the cemetery and would have to cross a lot of open ground against a lined up and primed Russian defense that outnumbered them 3:2 (this not even counting the two HIP squads stuck back at the goal line) so they called it a day.

2017-05-14(A) David Garvin vs James Montgomery Finnish win
2017-05-01(A) David Garvin vs Logan Stallings Finnish win
2017-02-25(A) Jeff B vs Bronson Barnhart Finnish winThe Finns were able to cross the S row on Turn 3, getting behind the Russians who were covering the street from the east and west. From there it was just a matter of running off squads while the rest of them tied up the defenders.
