The Ost Front Pack (OF) is a small scenario pack featuring a half-dozen East Front scenarios. Billed as a “tournament pack,” not all of the scenarios included within are actually suitable for tournament play. The pack contains 2 medium-sized scenarios, and 4 large scenarios (one of which has 39 Soviet squads!). Two scenarios have OBA; no scenarios use Air Support or Night rules. All scenarios are Soviet-German.
The board selection for the six scenarios is a bit odd. OF1 (Stalin’s Shadow) uses boards 10 and 44. OF2 (Storm, Five Five Five!) uses 4, 40, and 44. OF3 (Fortune Favors the Bold) uses boards 40 and 44. Both OF4 (Escape to the Elbe) and OF5 (Food for an Army) use boards 49 and 51. Finally, OF6 (Veritable Giants) uses boards 7 and 10. That is quite a bit of board duplication for so few scenarios.
Only one scenario, OF1 (Stalin’s Shadow), has seen a lot of play, and it appears to be unbalanced. A better option might be OF2 (Storm, Five Five Five).
