Scorpions in a Bottle ETO (id:#60987)
(Dezign Pak 6 ID:ESG #74)
Designer: Glenn Houseman
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Capturing the many small villages and holding the few roads open was typical of the fighting engaged in by the German army during the opening days of Barbarossa. When 17th Panzer slogged into Slonin they were fiercely counterattacked by Soviet forces led by Colonel Konov who had adroitly responded to reports of the German presence outside the village, and was concerned about the threat they posed to Baranavichy town behind his lines.

2015-01-19(D) fabrizio da pra vs Gaetano Girelli Russian winVery good and fun scenario so far, the T28 are fantastic with all those crappy Mg that add up to a decent firepower and also smoke 8. The scenario is interesting with sparse Vicory location that need to be taken and good possibility for both side to attack. Highly recommanded.
2011-05-23(D) Paul Jones vs Kevin Graves German winRussians never got to grips with German armour which is key to success.
2010-10-07(A) nathan wegener vs Doug S Russian winToo aggressive with armor early. Lost a couple tanks to the ATRs. Didnt have quite enough left to assault the village as a result. ASLOK 2010
