Purchased "Objective: Ponyri" by Martin Nevshemal (Leaping Horseman) in anticipation of MMP's release of the Ponyri HASL.
Looking for Ponyri scenario suggestions.
No Critical Hit Boxcars Inc. garbage, please.
Thank you.

Hill 253.5 from BV3 is set very near Ponyri. However it is slightly ahistorical because it has Panther D tanks instead of Ferdinands.

I'm sure that someone will come up with a scenario based on a pun, using Feldmarshall Model's name.

I wonder if subbing in Ferdinands, one-for-one, would work.
Thanks.

Is there actually such a scenario title?
And, wasn't Model accused of screwing up by not committing panzers quick enough?

I should think if both sides agree then do it.

I did this once a long time ago, can't recall the outcome. The switch favors the Russians IIRC, but I would still do it as German. It just feels right!

Great book - Objective Ponyri. In fact, the only book on the shelves that covers Ponyri in the kind of detail we need for scenarios. It is literally chock full of scenario materials for not only Ponyri, but for the surrounding areas (which in the future will be good HSASL subjects; Hill 253.5, May 1st Farm, others) Would like to make suggestions for existing scenarios, but until SaP comes out, hard to do. Hill 253.5 (subbing Ferds for Panthers) sounds like a good one.

Pete's scenarios will be cool to finally put out there. One of them I plan to play - 'Expelled' at the upcoming WCM in SoCal with my friend Scott Thompson. It's the fight for the School House.

Good scenario -- not my design, though. That honor goes to Matt Zajac.
