Bolt Action: Bridgehead Scenario from Ostfront

Jim's Germans v. Chris' Soviets 1000 pts

The Soviets start with half their army deployed within 12" of the bridge - Dug In not hidden (Dug In = - extra 1 to hit).  The other half come on in delayed reserve from turn 3. The Germans come on from the left, half in 1st wave on turn 1, half in reserve from turn 2.
The Germans set up fire support with an LMG squad on their right, MMG & A/car on their left, HT's in the centre  and charged the bridge with the rest of the infantry.
The German panzergrenadiers with assault rifles took the bridge, but the Soviet reserves are gettign sorted for a counterattack
The Soviets lost heavily, but the Germans had lost heavily in the original attack and there were just too many Soviets to resist.  They retook the bridge on turn 8.  This scenario goes for 10+ turns which seems a bit out of whack with the norm.  An extra turn or 2 to allow for delayed reserves is more logical.

Maybe make it 8 turns with a 9th on a 4.5 or 6?
