Must try Paras over Corinth, Jason. Never have, partly because it's fictional, and my preference is for historical. I've spent A LOT of time on From the Meuse to the Rhine. Way too much time. It's superb. I stopped when I felt I could get a win, as allies, which took me perhaps 50 runs through, where others could do it immediately!! I've also spent ages on Manhay, which is challenging as Axis. I've never got a decisive victory, despite spending a really enjoyable weekend at the battlefield itself. Enjoyed Hofen most when I was practising. Recently enjoyed Ellasson Rear Guard. But I'm sad to report, in a way, that my favourite ever is Huib's The Woensdrecht Isthmus, because it's longish, yet with a manageable number of forces (same reasoning as you, Jason), it involves periods of attack followed by periods of defence and a need to shift forces strategically to cover the places where the AI decides to focus. It really is superb, I think. Extremely nice map, nice estab, playable from both sides. From the Allied side it's Canadians with an interesting mix of armour and infantry, for the Axis it's KG Chill which I've been reading all about in the book I mentioned in another thread on Race for Bastogne recently. It's historical, and was a nasty, bitter fight in real life. It's just up the road from where I live, and so I've been able to visit the site.
Recently got into Race for Bastogne and enjoyed. It's big, with a full Corps t command, so you have to take your time.
And then there have been the experiments with platoon level scenarios put together by CapnHillrat. Had great fun playing soviets in the Kekava Fireight.
All great scenarios, I think. But Woensdrecht was the first one I played through where I thought the balance of length to size was just right for what I like.
