I was still niggling a bit about how to interpret Perry's answer and so I asked Fort. The DRM used for the second scenario is definitely the one for the 24th Oct. Fort confirmed it.The Russians can purchase 3 Inf. Coy on the second scenario on the first day - as the drm for the second scenario would be -1. The second scenario is played as if being the next CG Day.
I am totally OK with the drm ruling from both. What is more concerning is how many infantry companies can be purchased for instance... that rule says PER DAY. So on the 24th the Russians can buy 3 (2 + 1 for the extra drm) but is that 3 for EACH scenario "played" that day? for a total of 6?I was still niggling a bit about how to interpret Perry's answer and so I asked Fort.

I agree that is how Perry's answer reads. I think he would have said if the number of possible infantry companies purchased were limited to just 3 for the combination of the second and third scenario. I think we need to see the first three scenarios as each having their own "CG day" each despite the fact that they occur only on two days.I am totally OK with the drm ruling from both.

I think that is how Perry's answer reads... but that seems wrong somehow...
Good pics.So my brother and I got a few more turns in last night... We are now on Russian Turn 4.
The Germans are mostly across the boulevard in force, more progress has been made in the south where a smoke barrage on the boulevard allowed easy access to the cover on the other side. CVP are light, Germans have lost a few more HS than the Russian, most German losses are in CC but we did manage to take out a 458 with 2 halfsquads before wrapping up last night.
We contemplated using the rockets but failed the radio contact roll, debating saving it for the next scenario.
Russians are trading space and trying to keep his meager forces alive. We found a 76* gun sitting in the factory and a 45LL covering the main E-W road in the south.
Germans lost another tank to a street fighting attack... can't defend 1,2 rolls
Pictures from North to South
Not much excitement in the North. His killstack even at > 16 still keeps me from running crazy up here. The broken Russing lmg is my CC victory hex!

Moving a bit farther South we find I finally pushed up torwards the Kindergarten area, the flame is where my 80mm OBA is centered. You can also see the beserk HS that will open up the Russian defense like a can opener or die trying!

The next two pics show the main German attack in the South. We are quickly approaching the factory complex

Yeah, he has almost caught me in squads now after the second scenario! The German lead is gone for the most part.Meaning that the Germans get off to a good start but then find the going is slowly harder.
Yeah, our S/E's are at parity now, so I'll take the lead here in the 3rd scenario. Still is a little tough to hold up to all the German firepower and also weather is clear so Stukas are looming in my future. My luck with OBA has been horrible though. First day 12'ing the phone out and the second day drawing double red after one very ineffective mission. My second day I bought three companies in reserve (2 SMG and 1 Militia), a HW Pltn and 1 FPP. The 82* Mtr's and .50cal's were very effective, but expensive and now with Stukas around they have to hide, no more rooftops. For today more cheap infantry and continue to try OBA is the order of the day.The Russians are slowly going to build up their infantry forces by being able to purchase 2 or 3 coy per day. The Russian has plenty of infantry RG available and they are relatively cheap compared to the German coy. I think the Russian resistance is just going to get stronger.
