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.
2017-10-20(D) Andy Goldin vs Sebastiano Russian winMy forward defense as the German didn't turn out very well, as my retreating units got cut off and eliminated or captured for failure to rout. Sebastiano used terrain effectively so that I didn't get the long range MG shots I was counting on. As a result, he cleared my Germans out of the town completely, leaving me a tough counter-attack. I AFV "sleazed" his two units defending the eastern-most buildings north of the road but my CCs went badly (my 2vs1 odds attack was ambushed and eliminated while my other attacker got broken by incoming Russian fire the next turn). Although I destroyed a T34 and immobilized another, I didn't have enough infantry to take the objectives. In this scenario it really pays for the German if he can fall back to and retain the north eastern most two buildings instead of getting pushed out of the town completely. My forward defense didn't work and I lost entirely too much infantry due to routs getting cut and CC attacks that didn't go as I'd planned, thereby ensuring a Russian win.
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.
