I am almost done with my work on the Panzer Battles demo. While I have been working on two scenarios for it, I have also been fooling around with a concept series of quick battles set in World War II that are semi-historical. My goal is to create a series of small scenarios (10-16 turns in length), which any player should be able to finish in under two hours and hopefully closer to one!
If you are like me, I relish the time to game but I don't have too much of it at my disposal!
I hope this series (maybe 3-4 scenarios from the Eastern and Western fronts) will fill that void for Panzer Battles fans.
First up, is "Paulus Attacks!"
The scenario description:
Stalingrad, Sep. 17, 1942 09:30hrs: The German 6th Army is turning it's attention to the Fabrikstadt section of Stalingrad and in particular the sprawling Tractor Works Factory. Elements of the GE 389th Inf Div and the 16th Pz Div (KG v. Arensdorff) have been designated to lead the attack. Overnight the Luftwaffe has bombarded the railyards of the Tractor Works and the spires of black smoke from the burning train engines they destroyed can be seen from the hills west of the City where the German forces are preparing for the attack. Overhead, German air superiority has been achieved and German columns of infantry and tanks are driving to objectives deep in the City and along the Volga. The Soviet 62nd army has thrown it's limited reserves into counterattacks across the City in an attempt to stall the 6th Army advance.
Length: 16 turns
This is for the Battles of Kursk: Southern Front base game.
