Arnhem. 500pts Red Devils vs. SS Panzer Grenadiers

on Sat Apr 21, 2018 4:00 pm
Had a fun game of Battlegroup Market Garden Friday with Headysburg. British Paras attempting to expand their perimeter north of the bridge against a counter attacking Kampfgruppe of SS troops backed up by a Königstiger.

Para platoon pushed into the city ruins and grabbed solid positions early on, giving a lot of hell to German infantry attempting to enter the city block from the other side and pinning down practically every Grenadier with a fusilade of small arms fire. Germans deploy a 37mm AA truck on the far side of the park and retaliate with heavy autocannon fire.

After a bloody stuggle for the neighborhood, the Luftwaffe tips the balance with the appearance of an FW 109, scattering the Paras with a load of ordinance and forcing them to withdraw to their original position.

Thank you. Yes BG in my neck of the woods is usually accompanied by a host of beers. The fact that we can play it moderately drunk is a testament to it's overall simplicity.

Thanks all. I appreciate the feedback. Market Garden has been a lot of fun (especially as a German player!). Wish I had some desert armies and terrain to play with my new Torch book, but alas, that will all take a back seat to the new winter board for FotR/Bulge/Stalingrad.

And the bi weekly Overlord/ Market Garden game ofcourse.
