Played a panzer battle on the Eastfront, The Russian have 6x T-34 & 2x SU-85 vs the German 2x Panthers, 2x Tigers and one Pz IVH. The Russians have more infantry than the Germans and two hidden Guns (AA 85L & ART 76L).

The Germans quickly stumble into trouble.

... but, Turn 1 MPh, German footsoldiers receive fire in hex FrFA H3 (6 FP -2 DRM) and one of the soldiers -with the name Stock - step it up acting like a Hero, shortly thereafter his kid-brother (Stock) with another squad is attacked in hex FrFA L3 (1 FP -2 DRM), and also became a Hero.

...Turn 2 MPh, another German Hero is generated nr 3 (Woods hex FrFA P5).and the poor Russian unit in the Woods hex receive Advancing-Encirclement-Fire from four direction 12 FP (+1 woods, -3 From 3 Heroes).

., Turn 3, a broken German group routs in the open interdiction in hex FrFA R4, creates Hero nr 4.

...Turn 4 MPh, a German fanatic troop creates a Fanatic Hero nr 5, while they Assault Move across open ground and is attack (FP 4 -1 DRM, hex FrFA R0)..

The German Panzer perform poorly.

1st Tiger - Eliminates a Russian squad & 9-1 Ldr, shortly thereafter Recalled.

2nd Tiger - eliminates a T-34, before it is eliminated by a T-34 with a rear shot.

1st Panther - eliminated (frontal-Shock-APCR, and thereafter destroyed by a flank shot).

2nd Panther - immobilized by a brave Russian squad, the Panther kill squad & SU-85 (the 2nd SU-85 Recalled by German Sniper).

The Pz IVH end up in a shoot out with two T-34, Roll a TH DR 12, the T-34s fires back and hits the Pz IVH with a CH but the TK DR result is a Dud, The Pz IVH quickly drive off the North edge.

The Russians now have 5 T-34 left that are hunted by 5 German Heroes with Panzerfausts (range: 1 Hex), and they also combat the Russian infantry with the help of the German infantry (2 squad-equivalents are fanatic).

The best German Infantry attack is 8 FP -4 DRM, 4 Heroes are involved vs the Russian (emplaced +2 TEM) ART Gun , DR 5, K-Slash the 228 crew.

Exit 13 Points for Victory (12 needed). A German squad must exit, Martin have its last T-34 that attack with its CMG 4 FP no effect, Gun need TH 6, roll DR 7, intensive Fire need TH 6, roll 7 again.
German heroes are like flies upon this last T-34 with panzerfists and blast it into a burning wreck.

One German Hero KIA, none of the other 4 Heroes ain't even wounded.

Crazy and bizarre play experience.

Just played this one yesterday against Wes Vaughn. I had very good luck the whole scenario as the Germans and won handily. We both like the scenario and recommend it, frickus.

What do think Melvin? Despite having success as the German, I kinda like the odds with the Russians. I’ll say this much, German’s better bring their ‘A’ game. Five heros, lol.

Believe the scenario is pro-Russian 60-65%, I was never part of the playtest.
Like the scenario have played it 7 times now vs 7 different players.

Seen 5+ German Heroes before but not often and only in CG scenarios when the German OB is made up of 40-50+ squads, but 5 Hero creations from 9 squads in the first 3.5 Turns is nuts :D
