For the most part I agree but I still think The Commissar's House is a stinker. 138 of the 138th however is an absolute gem both in its original DB rendition or slightly changed MMP released version. There are a couple that may be less fun possibly because of set up restrictions or play area allowed but overall the scenarios are MUCH better for RB.Just finished playing RO3 Defenders of Stalingrad with Cpl Uhl. I was the Germans. I told Cpl Uhl that if I won as the Germans I would immediately go on Gamesquad and brag. So here I am.......
I had all the Germans apart from one half squad on the roof of Z21 in the West end of the factory. I deployed 4-6-7's to put bodies in the way of the Russian horde, remained concealed and hid my 9-2 kill stack in M23 / O23. Cpl Uhl had some bad CC rolls and in the end could only clear two hexes adjacent to my kill stack that had moved in the final turn to M22. He had to come adjacent, none of his prep fires had worked. A 40 FP down one was a five to clear one hex, 20FP flat was a four to clear the other for a German win.
Defenders of Stalingrad [RO3] German 8 Russian 20
That method was the only way I could think of to survive the wave of 6-2-8's coming at you.
It was a win. I think it is fair to say it did not lead to an exciting game. In fact Cpl Uhl and I are giving up on the Red Factories scenarios and going to the Red Barricades scenarios. I have not played those and Cpl Uhl states they are far better.
