“Winter or Summer battles in Mother Russia”

This expansion adds Panther tanks for the Germans, (first introduced in the Normandy expansion), and Kv-1, T-34, and Su-122 tanks for the Russians. Maps and Map overlays allow for summer or winter battles. I would have liked to seen more winter road map overlays to finish the roads, Some scenarios I’ve seen use winter balka tiles for road tiles. A few more winter woods hexes would have been nice too, I’ve seen a couple of scenarios that use winter swamp hexes for winter woods hexes. I like this expansion a lot and find it to be the most versatile. With it, you can design Summer Russian scenarios, Winter Russian scenarios, Battle of the Bulge scenarios, and Finnish Winter War scenarios. I have already designed a Battle of the Bulge scenario, and there is an available Finnish Winter War scenario on the web.

There are a few optional rules with this one that may make it a little more difficult that the original game. Sabotage and Ammo types for tanks add a little to the game. I have yet to play the ammo rules, but they have now been included in the Next Wave base set. If you like armor, this is the expansion for you. If you like combat in the winter, here you go!
