Lately, I've been in the mood for some Western Front scenarios, so I put together an overview of some available TOAW scenarios; some came with the game, and others were ones I've downloaded.
For those interested, if you didn't know, you can get additional scenarios from https://alternatewars.com/Games/TOAW/TOAW.htm, https://archive.org/details/wargamer-depot_toaw4, and of course, the forums right here.

Many of these were from earlier versions of TOAW. It's super easy to convert them--just load them in the editor and save them--then they should have no problem in TOAW 4.

I just copied some of the stats from these scenarios, so at a glance you can see how complex/time-consuming they might be. Sometimes I feel like just a short scenario.
So I've included the operational scale, number of turns, number of units per side, and events--these are all from the descriptions in the game.

I did not include scenarios that are play-by-email only, because I'm not really interested in those.

I put this list together for my own geeky reference, but I just figured I'd post this if it helps someone who wants a quick overview of these.

Appreciate that you are sharing your list. Thanks. I’m using to see if I’ve missed anything. As shown I’ve grouped the scenarios by year which probably means I have too much extra time .

I know that the number of events is used in the complexity calculation, however I caution people about using total events as an indicator. As an example, the D21 scenario has over 1000 events defined, less than 40 are Theater Options which, in my opinion, add complexity. The remaining events are news, triggers for other events, weather, etc. These events are necessary, but since the player can do nothing with them, I don’t see them as adding complexity.

Regards & thanks

This one is very dated and pretty awful in terms of equipment allocated to units. I can say that freely because it was my first attempt at a TOAW scenario back in the 1990s. I've meant to update, correct, and enlarge it forever.

I think you may have missed some Battle for Germany scenarios. Bob Cross has authored one of them.

Cheers

Thanks for the list! There are two versions of this one, which allows for all three modes of play. The other version has a [T] in the name.
