Arnhem Game 18th and 19th September

Post by Arnhem_chris » Tue Dec 01, 2009 2:02 pm

As mentioned in another thread, BW and I are trying to plan to put on my 'Arnhem' game on the above weekend .... we will need some idea of who will be attending and which day (or both) so that we can assign commands, so please drop a reply on this thread, so that we can start the planning .... as usual first come, first served

Hi Richard,

The only thing we may have a problem sourcing atm (off of the top of my head), would be a British Glider Brigade (three of us did the British Airborne ... a brigade each) ... don't need the Gliders, just the Infantry figures & possibly some of their attached vehicles etc ... this is of course all in 20mm and based as per Rapid Fire .... none of that 15mm and FOW, fantasy heresy here! ;). I have to really sit down, and talk with Matt (BW), about what figure he and his cohorts do and do not have, to figure out if there are any shortages at all tho' first!

the planets are aligned - my entry for the the guild challenge is to finally paint my airborne brigade.

i will do them as glider units (but you will have to put up with para beret badges as I will take away some figures to be able to use them as a para brigade at a later time).

also have recce squadron with polsten, atk and arty bttys if needed

and have a few horsas to litter the fields

not sure what 15m is :D (unless it is ACW that is)

Richard

That sounds great!, as it would be the Atk, and the arty that I would imagine I would be most short of .... I have a few of each myself, but not a div's worth! ;) ... apart from of course a complete Brigade! ;) .... but it sounds like you will have that covered .... how will you be basing them?

Cool, its looking like 'Arnhem .... the rebirthing' is gonna be a goer! :)

Now the only problem with this discussion, is that it has got my mind back onto a 'Bettuwe' and a Nijmegen-Groesbeek' table ..... should I be trying to add these to Arnhem for this game ..... can we find enought people to also add a Polish Para Brigade, and 3 US Parachute Infantry Regiments + other divisional odds and sods? ...... nope gotta, gotta clear my mind of those thoughts! ;)

There has also been a suggestion of pushing it to the September time slot and moveing the scheduled september even to August ..... so that we can try and get relatively close to the anniversary ..... any thoughts on this?

So far we have ME, BW, Richard, 3 others from the Goulburn clan of gamers (Don't worry they mainly play (WARGAMES!) with Matt ... so they can't be that talented! ;) ) .... and we'll make sure they are all split up! ;), and a couple of other 'likelys' ... so no-one else interested?

of course if we do open up the boards to the south then I have 3 Armoured Reg'ts and 2 Infantry Bttns from Guards Armoured with support (whole Arty Regt, engineers and bridging) to help our septic cousins out :?: :?: :?:

chris - i base them singularly on 20mm circular wooden bases from litko. vehicles usually not based but the jeeps are fairly fragile (mainly milicast) so they will be based

maybe we can get alcal to ship out his boards for the island :shock:

Well given it is some time away, i could be interested in joining in. :)

It would certainly give me the motivation to get painting and the guise of a "business" trip should keep the minister of home affairs at bay. :twisted:

well if you do do the others I have the Polish Brigade and 2 PIR's however it is in the last few weeks of the football season so it might be difficult to get there

Simon,

thanks for the offer, but as you can imagine, we pretty much have/had everything needed for this game .... the only exception being the British Glider brigade (Now being supplied by Richard), that was originally painted by Dean
