2018-05-19(D) Dave Mareske vs Keven Adams German win
2018-05-02(A) Dave Mareske vs Dan Best Russian winEarly high DRs by the Germans allowed the Russians to attack and occupy the village by Turn 4, but very good DRs made the game close on the German counterattack. Highlight was a T-34 overrunning a German squad in a building.
2017-09-30(D) Andy Goldin vs Sebastiano Caltabiano Russian winMy forward defense and plan to get long range MG shots didnít work as Sebastiano avoided my lines of fire. He used terrain effectively to bypass and eliminate my forward defenders by failure to route. He cleared and occupied the town just prior to my counter attack. Although I managed to destroy a T34, immobilize a second and sleaze freeze the defending infantry in two buildings, the CC in both ended badly (getting eliminated by ambush in one and losing 2:1 in the second) resulting in a Russian win. Although the balance shows as even I think this one is tough on the Germans.
2017-09-24(D) Stephen dedier vs Crawford, Brent Russian winMy forces were overwhelmed. I made several strategic mistakes keeping my MMG hidden trying to gain an advantage. I should have had more units on the village side of the valley. As it was I could not effectively rout and hold the Russians once they broke through and it was a massacre
2016-03-29(D) X von Marwitz vs Martin Mayers German winInteresting scenario which is designed so that first the Germans are supposed to get a beating and then fight back as reinforcements enter in the nip of time. I played the Germans in this one and spend considerable time to come up with a (supposedly) good setup. This has paid off as I managed to spring some surprises and made the initial approach of the Russians troublesome. Some good DRs helped to deal out considerable damage to the initial Russian Human Wave. It could have gotten worse for the Russians but the Germans malfed both their HMG and MMG. Still, during the 2nd Russian MPh, the Germans managed to break some additional Russian squads and to spring another surprise. The Russians conceded as it would most likely have taken too long to get their infantry back up and running and further forward before the German reinforcement would have taken up positions in the victory area. Nice scenario which I would play again to see how it turns out with more average dice. Defenitively, it seems important for the German to give some careful consideration to his setup.
