Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Italian / GermanRussian
Gruppo Nord was in trouble. The retreating Italian and German troops had reached the town of Arbuzov on December 22nd, but Soviet troops soon ringed the hills on the town's outskirts. These troops protected the mortars, artillery pieces and rockets which rained down steel on the surrounded town. To stay in Arbuzov was certain death or capture. From the thousands of Italians in the vicinity, most not combat-worthy, their leaders gathered up as many men as they could to launch a last chance attack. . .

Last Played:
2019-06-08(D) Wen-bin Huang vs Der_Ring Italian / German winHeavy snow makes every hill fight for themself. with the bad location of Russian AT Gun setup I lose on the 5th turn as no good order MMC on hills.
2019-01-02(A) nathan wegener vs Peter Wegener Russian winNo smoke from mortar meant running into heavy fire which tore up my attackers and I could not push the Russians off the big hill. Good mix of units and toys for both sides had a good time.
2015-12-15(D) James Lowry vs Patch Bunny Russian win
2015-03-30(A) David Yllanes vs Ken D Russian winI wasted too much time and resources on the little hills, my attack on the big one was completely stopped. Overall perhaps a little tough on the Italians.
2012-10-03(D) Kermit Mullins vs Scott Waites Italian / German win1/2 a turn in and things are already getting interesting. Looking forward to a good scenario.
