Based on longer term players experiences would you say that these scenarios are designed to be:
a. Historically accurate?
b. Historically flavoured but balanced?

Kev, it's tough to say. I have probably played a total of 10 scenarios (most solitaire....excuse the subtle hint) and most have been balanced. A few have been won/lost on the last turn. One particular scenario (scenario 5 I believe) was played twice and the results were wildly different with decisive victories each way. Some of this could be attributed to an evolution of tactics. It was really fun even though lopsided.

But I get the feeling that they are designed to be balanced with strong historical flavor.

Mark.

Exactly.

Expansion 3 includes three historical scenarios with dedicated maps. You'll be able to contrast the differences.

You have to, at least from a distance, look as if you know what you're doing, and I can manage that.

Bring it to us... Jim.
May I ask the future of Panzer? More expansions and if so we are traveling to where?
Love Panzer.

On tap for the for the future are additions for North Africa and France 1940. North Africa would, more than likely, be a full game like the original release due the artwork requirement for the German units. That camo wouldn't work too well in the desert.
