Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
To take Luga, a Soviet strongpoint on the "Leningrad Highway", the German 409th Infantry Regiment crossed the Oredezh River with plans to take the village of Panikovo. As they moved toward the village the Russians sprung a trap, sending troops and tanks into the flank of the Germans. In an effort to speed their attack through the dense woods, the Germans had brought no A-T guns. Their only course of action was to form a "hedgehog" and await relief.

2018-04-21(D) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best German winAnother great scenario against Dan Best. His Russians were relentless in assaulting my Germans. My left flank crumbled like saltine crackers, but I held in the center and on the right long enough for the Stugs to help me eek out the win. Dan managed to get 15 of the 22 CVP needed, but my Landsers survived. Bloody losses on both sides with 75% Russian losses and 60% German.
2017-10-14(A) David Garvin vs Peter Courtney Russian winToday was a game day at my place. Matthew and Peter came over and we had a match of ASL 129 "Slamming of the Door" in Beyond Valor 3rd Edition. I started as Soviets and was up against Peter, who was later joined by Matthew as they collaborated on the defense. My forces were coming to hit him from my right, with a view to setting up a human wave on that side. My tanks (radioless) are moving as a blob to help get around and behind the Russians. The best laid plans.... Due to Peter's initial defensive fire, my human wave plan fell apart, but the best part of my plan was my light mortar. It went on successive rate tears and ended up breaking all of his forces on my right. I ended up capturing the lot of them and escorted them back out of harm's way. I then decided to press on the attack with my tanks moving up on him and some of my infantry moving around to the other side, again with a view to blocking his rout paths. It all ended on Turn 5 (out of 6). . I broke his guys on my left and then eliminated their ability to rout. Also, to seal the deal, my Russians committed a war crime and massacred the prisoners. (But by doing so, in my defense, I ended the game. LOL) In the end, the key part of the game was the Soviet light mortar. Even though the German HMG ended up with a rate tear or two of its own, that little mortar tore great holes in the German line. Snipers were quite active in spite of the low SAN. Well, the German one was, and he pinned and broke a number of Soviet Squads. In the end, Soviet win, but not without cost. German fire tore into my ranks, and given that my own losses didn't alter the victory conditions, my commissar made sure every man knew his duty. Play of the game? My mortar targeted the German light mortar and got a rate tear, but the 2 down 1 shots did little, until I finally got the German to roll a morale check. Pete promptly rolled 1,1. The HOB roll was a 6, resulting in Heat of Battle *and* Hero. That hero survived the match (wounded), but the squad promptly ELRd back to a 1st line squad, and CRd, of course, on a 12.
2017-06-03(D) Jeff B vs Ryan Ellett German winIf the OBA works (which mine did), and the reinforcements enter early (which mine did), and they set up in the southeast corner behind the hedgerow, I really don't see the Russians standing much of a chance. I think their only option would be to amass their forces and try an armored assault human wave, and this could be hampered by effective German shooting. One of the few defensive scenarios I have played where skulking wasn't even considered.
2017-03-04(D) Christopher Howard vs Mal Russian winMy opponent absolutely outplayed me. My leader with the radio was wiped out, so OBA wasn't used. My tanks came on early, but two of them were immediately wiped out. I might be terrible at this game, but I had fun!
2017-02-08(A) Martí Cabré vs German Fernandez Russian winI quickly moved against the first German positions and overruned them with human waves. My tanks arrived and closed in to the central German position. Harassing OBA began to fall to hinder both my movement and fire and the German assault guns arrived in Turn 3 and destroyed three of the Russian tanks. On Turn 4 the Russians assaulted the central building and broke the defenders, capturing them for the 20 VP needed to win.
