I have posted a free Kursk Scenario on the Combat Action Command website (link below). The Scenario Design Notes provide information so that you can easily adapt it to use Flames or War, Command Decision and other WWII rules. Enjoy.

Happy Holidays! Lee

Interesting scenario, if only a small vignette rather than the whole battle.

How would a tabletop miniatures wargame possibly recreate the entire multi-day battle involving hundreds of thousands of troops and covering hundreds of square miles? Of course it's just a scenario set during the battle .

Depending on troop scale ground scale you can model very large battles indeed. We did the entire north rm flank of Kursk. One base to one battalion.

True, but once you go above a certain groundscale, it seems to me you've crossed the line from a wargame with miniatures-- which are usually more tactical games-- to a board game on the table top.

There is another Free Download on the CAC website FREE PK44 which might let you do at least an entire "Front" at Kursk. PK 44 is a set of rules, not a scenario. Scale is 1 to 20 AFVs (actually 1 model to a company) with 1" = 500m and 1 Turn per Day. It works well with 1/300 and 10mm minis and I have played Operation Goodwood on my Kitchen Table and Operation Market Garden on 3 tables placed end to end at Historicon.

If you are in to playing ALL of Kursk, PK 44 might work for you! If there is enough interest, I will put up the Russian Data Cards so you can have a go at Kursk.

Cheers!
