Sorry Gents - I missed this discussion as I was focused on modding and the main AARs, etc.
'41 game is underway, and I think that's the best option. Personally, my focus at this stage is to test and refine the team model and build a base of keen team players who will become the STAVKA and OKH players of future games. If the game is basically over by '42 for any reason (German supermen, blizzard, etc.) we have the option then to start the stock '42 scenario.
Frankly, game scores aside, my feeling is that if the Axis take Leningrad and Moscow in '41, they've won, and if the Soviets hold the Axis several hexes back from those cities, plus Rostov, it's a Soviet victory. After that, we're just having fun...
