Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Time was running out for the Germans surrounded in Stalingrad. On December 12, the LVII Armored Corps launched Operation Wintergewitter (“Winter Tempest”), the offensive to relieve VI Army. Spearheading the drive was the veteran 6th Panzer Division, equipped with an entirely new allocation of AFVs. Driving north from Koteinkovo, the Germans easily cut through the Soviet 51st Army. On the morning of the second day of Wintergewitter, 6th Panzer reached and crossed the Askay River after capturing a bridge at Zalivsky. Driving forward with all speed, the lead elements of the division entered the village of Verkhne-Kurnsky in the late afternoon, held by the powerful Fifth Shock Army.

Last Played:
2019-05-17(D) Jeff B vs John Malaska German winA boring initial defensive position for the Russians as they watch the German armor storm on without much of anything to stop them. The only thing to do is hold onto concealment as long as possible. Unfortunately for me, my opponent probably averaged 3.5 on his IFT rolls to strip about half of my force's concealment by the end of Turn 2 (and killing 1.5 squads). I did manage to flame a loaded HT with my reinforcing armor. The next turn saw another HT go down, but we traded immobilizations. With a deficit of 2:5 tanks, that was a trade-off I could ill-afford. at the start of Turn 4 I knocked out another two HT, but his immobile tank got two lucky shots on my only mobile AFVs and killed them both. Without tank support, it was only a matter of time before the Germans made easy pickings of the Russians.
2016-12-18(A) Dan Best vs Dave Mareske German winExtremely low rolls by the Germans.
2016-08-27(A) Jeff Hew vs Jon Halfin German win
2015-05-23(D) Andy Beaton vs Richard Hooks German winOne sniper was the margin of German victory
2014-08-18(A) mark watson vs Ken Knott German winThis is a fun, slightly BFPish, tournament sized scenario. Ken's dice were firmly against him, allowing the Germans to eliminate all but one squad and all his tanks (the final one on Allied Turn 5). Glad to have finally put this one down.
2013-08-27(A) Richard Carter vs Luke Sineath German winDespite some stout initial defense in the village, I was able to surround and ultimately breakthrough the infantry defense. I won the tank battle w/ a lucky APCR shot and was able to swarm the other tanks and take them out. Great Scenario
2012-10-26(D) David Ramsey vs Miles W Russian winThe Russian tanks arrived at the right time to almost destroy every German tank.
2010-12-28(D) Steve Bowen vs DD German winRussian infantry fell apart in town and the tanks couldn't get through in time. Careful attack by the German won the day.
2009-12-05(A) Keith Colins vs Dave Childs German winFun combined arms sceanrio.
