Sometimes you just have to back up and start over...


Back to the Beach

ASL Scenario WOW #2

France, May 28, 1940: Following the successful breakout from the
La Bassee Canal the leading elements of the 7th Panzer Division
pushed north towards Lille from which elements of the British
Expeditionary Force (B.E.F.) was withdrawing to the Dunkirk
perimeter. Attempting to seal off the western exits from Lille,
deploying reconnaissance elements began to encounter the British
exodus.

Game Length: 8 turns

For the British to win they must exit the AFV's toward Dunkirk
For the Germans to win they must prevent the AFV's from making it to Dunkirk

British: Squads, LMG's, AFV's
Germans: Squads, HMG, LMG"s, AFV's

Boards: #4, #33

Aftermath: The Germans were confronted by a force of lorries under
armed escort. Attempting to bypass the blocking force, the British
lost a large number of lorries. Surviving passengers had to flee
west on foot as the roads were no longer passable due to the
interdicting Germans.

Not Without a Fight

Playtest Scenario

Near Auw, Germany, December 16, 1944: The American 589th Artillery Battery
was in danger of losing all contact with the unit they supported just
after noon on the first day of the Ardennes Offensive. The mission of the
18th Volksgrenadier Division was to smash the battery and seal the trap.

Game Length: 7 turns

For the Germans to win they must take out the artillery battery
For the Americans to win they must defend the artillery from the German onslaught

Germans: Squads, MMG's, LMG's, OBA, AFV's
Americans: Squads, MMG, BAZ44, ART Guns

Boards: #2, #4, #12

Aftermath: Although the gunners of Battery A were an intrepid lot they could not
withstand the onslaught. as the Volksgrenadiers charged the hill they found the
Americans had already left. Another objective gained in their march westward.

Shtrafbat

East Prussia Border, 09/15/1944.
You are the SMG company of your penal battalion. Your mission today is to carry out a reconnaissance in force to
test the enemy's defenses and find a way for our army to invade East Prussia.
Go for your objectives, do not take care of the enemy pockets left behind, others will take care of them.
The Stavka did not deem it useful to provide you with fire support, your courage should suffice. However some assault
guns accompany you to make believe in a real attack.
And remember, your life is worth nothing, you have the choice between advancing under enemy fire or being shot by your
officers.
This is your lucky day, the enemy has not installed mines at this area of the front.

Attacker: Russian (Penal Battalion)
Defender: German (Panzer Grenadier Battalion)

Best played on Russian SIDE first / with LOS: 16 Hexes / with RULE: Gamblovic and the rest... / with MOD: Yours / etc.

Scenario Length: 8 Game Turns
Victory objective: The side with the required Victory Points is the winner. Both sides gets VPs for owning VP Objectives.
Scenario designer : Men of War'Men [ Condemned Heroes ]

Now, this is a depressing thought...


Town Without Pity (GC3)

Philippsburg, Alsace-Lorraine, January 3, 1945: In the early hours German
units had forced the Americans out of Philippsburg. Several hours later
they had reformed and were ready for a counterattack.

Game Length: 8 turns

For the Americans to win they must capture all stone/rubble buildings
For the Germans to win they must defend the town

Americans: Squads, MMG's, BAZ44's, AFV's
Germans: Squads, MMG, LMG's, PSK's

Boards: #24

Aftermath: To the hail of fire from the Germans was added that of American
warplanes as they mistakenly attacked U.S. units. Days later Philippsburg
would be finally retaken. The toll would decimate both sides and leave the
streets littered with frozen corpses.

So where can we find this VASSAL module design work?


Here and there. I've been developing and maintaining the module for Virtual Advanced Tobruk System (VATS) for years and have done stuff for Flying Pig Games (OST Vol.II + III, Night of Man, PCD: Kursk). Those modules are available through their respective publishers. On the Vassal website, I contributed the Ogre-GEV Deluxe module. I'm just finishing up a new module for Battlelore 2nd Edition with a pseudo-3D vibe which I'll likely post to the website soon.

I plan to next start working on modules for Tango Down (Tiny Battle Publishing), Armageddon War (Flying Pig), and Nuklear Winter '68 2nd Edition (Lock n Load Publishing). I would spend every day working on Vassal modules if I could. I love it.

Hopefully I understood your question!

Now, this sounds familiar...


Waltzing Matilda

Winds of War '90
Tournament Scenario

Arras, France, May 20, 1940: Lead by the seemingly impregnable
A10 Matilda tanks, the British offensive against Rommel's
strung-out spearheads were beginning to crest against a piece-
meal defense by the Germans.

Game Length: 8 turns

For the British to win they must have their AFV's penetrate through the German defense
For the Germans to win they must stop the British offensive

British: Squads, LMG's, AFV's
Germans: Squads, MMG, LMG's, DC's, AA Gun, AFV's

Boards: #4, #5

Aftermath: The Germans, desperate to stop the British advance, were
able to do so by deploying the legendary 88's (some of which were personally
directed by Rommel himself) of nearby flak units. Nonetheless, many Germans
had suffered their first case of terminal "Matilda-itis".

Source: On All Fronts, Waltzing Matilda, This scenario was based on the
ASL scenario "M" "First Crisis of Army Group North".

Wow, over 500 scenarios submitted and still going...


Surrounded at Mouterhouse (GC1)

Mouterhouse, Alsace-Lorraine, France, January 1, 1945: The beginning
of the end for elements of Task Force Hudelson came in the early morning
hours as the Germans began their last offensive of the war. The objective
was to break out of the Bulge, link up with units in the Colmar Pocket and
annihilate Deaver's 6th Army.

Game Length: 7 turns

For the Germans to win they must capture VP buildings
For the Americans to win they must hold the town

Germans: Squads, MMG, LMG's, PF's, AFV's
Americans: Squads, MMG, BAZ45's, MTR, AFV's

Boards: #24

Aftermath: The Germans attacked at 0530 Hrs in overwhelming numbers and
without the warning of a preliminary barrage. They quickly engulfed the
positions held by the units of the Task Force who found themselves cut
to pieces, fighting desperately for their lives or in retreat. The 117th
was surrounded; the 62nd was still fighting but withdrawing through
Bannstein; and the 94th had simply disappeared.

I thought I came from a rough neighborhood...


Apartment Hunting

Kharkov, in the Ukraine, March 11, 1943: The German counteroffensive
by Von Manstein had reversed the initial success achieved by the
previous Russian assault. By easily sweeping aside the strung out,
overconfident Russian forces back towards the Donets Basin the Germans
were once again astride the large metropolis. Disobeying a direct order
of not getting committed in a costly city struggle and suffer needless
heavy losses, Hausser sent his vanguard, the elite Leibstrandarte Adolph
Hitler into the city. Possibly motivated by prestige, the battle seasoned
SS troopers now found themselves embroiled in severe fighting amongst the
numerous apartment buildings.

Game Length: 10 turns

For the Germans to win they must capture the city
For the Russians to win they must defend VP buildings

Germans: Squads, HMG, MMG, LMG's, ATR's, FT's, DC's, AFV's
Russians: Squads, HMG, MMG, LMG's, ATR's, DC's, AT Guns, ART Gun, AFV's

Deluxe ASL Boards: #a, #b, #c, #d

Aftermath: Led by Max Hanson, the Panzergrenadiers pushed right through to the
Red Square in tough street fighting and so opened the access routes to the city
center. As the deadly street fighting raged on, the bulk of the XLVIII Panzer
Corps found itself pinned down to the south of the city on the Misha Stream.
Colonel-General Roth, a master of mobile operations, did not wish to be pinned
down and employed the bulk of his forces in an encirclement movement around
Kharkov. On the 15th of March, the pocket was sealed, the same day resistance
by the Soviets collapsed at the Kharkov Tractor Works, the last bastion of
resistance. The victory, however, was a pyrrhic one. Motivated by prestige
rather than by a tactical necessity the casualties suffered by the Leibstandarte,
always considered as the cream of the crop were heedlessly high. Avenging an
earlier pasting at Rostov in 1941, the SS once again proved of what mettle they
were made.

Just played "Follow me!": nice little scenario!

I only managed to get a Minor Victory, because of a stubborn PzIIIJ that managed to survive five CC Segments, killing lots of Russian infantry in the process . The T-34s spent most of the game failing C&C or radio checks (a perfect representation of Russian armor in 1941).

Two notes:

1) the Panzer III J armed with the 50L (unofficially labelled as J2) should not be available as early as October 1941. Most sources indicate the long-barrelled version was introduced in Spring 1942, mostly in Russia (a few went to North Africa, where the British called them Mk III Special). From a game balance perspective, however, replacing the IIIJ with a IIIH would give the Russian a strong advantage (provided his T-34s move ).

2) the three Russian squads scheduled to enter as reinforcements on turn #2 are assigned to Zone 2... which does not exist .

I think I'll try playing the Germans: this might be one of those very rare scenarios where the AI has a reasonable chance to win.

UP844, I intentionally replaced the Panzer IIIH with the Panzer IIIJ for play balance. The Ausf.H was available since 1940 and the Ausf.J was built in 1941 but don't know what month using Wikipedia as reference. So based on that it seemed conceivable that the Panzer IIIJ would be available. Of course, being built in 1941 doesn't mean it was used in 1941. The Panzer IIIJ with its long barrel was a better match because using the Panzer IIIH just kept bouncing shells off the T-34's. Also, I often try to give the AI some kind of edge against its human opponents. With regards to the reinforcements, that was in error leaving them in the OOB. I was experimenting and forgot to delete it.

For a variety of reasons, many scenarios are very one-sided so I typically "tweak" here and there for a more even match. Often, the map features that don't exist in ToTh changes the play balance. Also, the senario designer expects the defense to take a more active role which can't really be done with the AI. So, expect variation from the original design for play balance purposes in the scenarios I port over but I'll try harder maintaining history.

Hailstone, I wholeheartedly agree with your post.

When I played with the Russians, I kept my T-34s well away from the Pz IIIJ and engaged it in CC.

I tried playing the scenario with the Germans, but it ended in a German Major Victory on turn 4. The T-34s dashed forward and at the end of the Russian Turn 1 they were all adjacent to German Infantry: one of them was Immobilized by a very lucky(*) ATR hit, and three out of four were locked in CC at the end of the German Turn 1 (combined arms were not in the 1941 Red Army playbook). At the end of the German Turn 2 there were no surviving T-34s. Russian infantry appeared on Turn 3, and was wiped out by German infantry.

(*) I think ATRs are the most useless SW in the game: I once fired a dozen times against a BT-5 and never managed to get a penetration...

As for Russian reinforcements, I think they should be made "AI-only" to give the AI some more chance to make the human player worry. The German AI can be made tougher by adding another Pz III or a 50mm AT Gun.

Even though this technique is a bit rough, I think it is the only viable approach to address the AI lack of skill. In the scenarios Paullus made for the D-Day pack the AI often gets 50% (and more) extra units to compensate for its lack of skill.

Looks like the Panzer IIIJ could have been available that Oct 13, 1941 scenario. UP844,
keep the comments coming. If you don't keep me honest Big Ivan will then I'll have to
change my handle if I'm to continue! And now we have the company of Zovs to keep us all
in check. I like where this is going.

Yes, but it would have been an early Pz III J, armed with the 50 MA (in game terms, a Pz III H). As far as I know Pz IIIs armed with the 50L were first issued to Panzer Divisions refitting after the 1941/42 winter campaing.

The version in the scenario is this:

PzKw III J/1
Available from 1/42 - 3/42
Speed = 13, Crew 5
Weapons:
5cm KwK 38 L60 (Load out) HE: 30, AP: 47, Sabot: 15
7.92mm MG34 CMG (Ammo) HE: 120
7.92mm MG34 BMG (Ammo) HE: 120
Armor:
HF 5, HS 3, HR 5, TF 7, TS 3, TR 3, Top 2

I do not think having a III J or III H makes a big difference for a human German, but it is essential for the AI, as it has to deal with a human Russian, which won't be so foolish to send the T-34s ahead with no infantry support (even though AI infantry is not especially fond of attacking AFV, it sometimes does it anyway).

As an alternative, the 37mm ATG could be replaced by a 50mm ATG (which entered service in early 1941).

Now here's one where they are coming for you...


Storm, Five, Five, Five!

Bobruysk, Russia, June 25, 1944: The radios of the Soviet Don Tank Corps
crackled with the words "Storm, Five, Five, Five!" The all-out offensive
against the salient of Army Group Center had begun. However, east of the
Bobruysk Bridge over the Berezina River wanted a worthy opponent. The re-
inforced II/Panzer Regiment 21, Panzer Division 20 was well placed and
could be employed against either a northerly or southerly Russian thrust.
The battalion was superbly equipped with about one hundred battle worthy
Mark IV's. However Major Paul Schulze, in command of the regiment, had
received no orders. Therefore, on his own initiative, Schulze hurled
three of his companies, including his own tank, against the attack of the
Soviet 48th Army north of Bobruysk. Naturally, orders arrived from head-
quarters immediately after Schulze started the attack. He and his Panzer
Companies were to halt the main drive threatening the north-south Bobruysk-
Mogilev Highway. From the north to the south, the Russians smashed the
German 9th Army's strongpoints along the Berezina River, but Makor Schulze
Panzergruppe made good progress at the beginning. Yet, while Schulze's panzers
were cleaning up the Russian penetrations along the front, the villages in the
rear were already in flames. The Russians had broken through to the north-west
and were threatening the rear of Schulze Panzergruppe. The Major pulled Lt.
Begemann's Panzer Company out of the operation and ordered it to race back to
the north to hold the crossroads and the bridge east of Bubruysk. Lt. Begemann
had arrived just as the Russians' attack was being launched on the bridge.
Between him and the bridge was a screening force sent around to cut off any
reinforcements. Having made contact with the bridge guard by radio, the
Panzer Company under Begemann's bold and resolute leadership rode roughshod
over the screen. Begemann took and held the bridge allowing Panzer Division 20
to withdraw four days later.

Game Length: 7 turns

For the Russians to win they must capture the Bobruysk Bridge
For the Germans to win they must hold the bridge

Russians: squads, LMG, AFV's
Germans: Squads, MMG, LMG, DC, AFV's

Big Ivan, is it the same where a bunch of T-34's have a meeting engagement with the Mark IV's?
This is the first scenario I've dragged over to TotH where the AI makes a decent offensive opponent.
Lot's of tank vs tank action.

Nice Hailstone, I'll have to take a look at it. Thanks for drawing it up!!

The one in EFII I've played a few times and it plays well! Lot of possibilities for both sides.

Talk about being lined up like ducks in a shooting carnival...


The I & R Platoon

Lanzareth, Belgium, December 16, 1944: Wacht Am Rhein offensive
had caught the Americans with undermanned front lines. The hill
overlooking Lanzarethhad been occupied by a full company of the
2nd Infantry Division. Now it was held by 18 men of an I&R
(intelligence and Reconnaissance) platoon, led by the young
Lt. Bouck Jr. The hill overlooked Lanzareth and a crucial road
junction. Roads from the junction led to Losheimergreben and
Bucholz Station. Lanzareth itself was held only by a platoon
of tank destroyers. This skimpy force was in the path of Sepp
Dietrich and his troops. Should they fail to hold, the path was
open to the 99th Infantry Division's rear. A rolling artillery
barrage in the early morning hours of the 16th did no damage
but foretold of action to come. To the dismay of the platoon,
immediately after the barrage ended, the tank destroyers "bugged
out", leaving them completely unsupported. Lt. Bouck spotted a
huge column of German troops coming toward Lanzareth. He called
for artillery fire on the road south of town but the request
fell on skeptical ears and no rounds were forthcoming. The Germans
were marching in column to save time, as they believed that there
were no Americans in the vicinity. From their well-camouflaged
positions, the 18 men of the platoon trained their weapons on
the approaching Germans. Bouck let about three hundred men pass
by close enough to see their faces. As a command group of three
officers approached, a 13-year-old Belgian girl stepped onto
the road, pointed at the American positions, and yelled a warning
to the surprised Germans.

Game Length: 6 turns

for the Germans to win they must secure the road
For the Americans to win they must deny the Germans road access

Germans: Squads, HMG, MMG's, LMG's, MTR's
Americans: Squads, HMG, MMG's, OBA

Boards: #2, #3, #19

Aftermath: Lt. Bouck hesitated before giving the order to fire out
of concern for the girl. This allowed the Germans to dive into
ditches alongside the road. The platoon fired relentlessly at
the charging paratroopers all day, holding them at bay. Bouck
begged for artillery support, only to be told that none was
available, and to hold on at all costs. A German bullet smashed
the radio, ending any chance of getting artillery. But still, the
few defenders held firm, cutting down the Germans as they charged
out of Lanzareth. Finally, at dusk, with many of the men casualties
and ammo running low, the Americans were outflankled and were pulled
out of their foxholes at gunpoint. Lt. Bouck would celebrate his
21st birthday the next day as a POW, but the defense put up by him
and his men cost the Fallschirmjaegers 200 dead and wounded.
