Old School Disposable Heroes in Market Garden

I had a chance to dig out some of my WW2 stuff and hash out a quick Arnhem game at the gaming club in York. Objectives were for British Paras to hold buildings and for the Germans to take them.

Some daring work by the Paras as they kept a flame thrower team mobile against the one panzer and the PIAT team against the other. Germans managed to take one building at heavy costs, but lost their commander to persistent sharp shooter fire. Other highlights include a machine gun duel between a vickers and a mg42. A win for the Paras, but hard fought.

More to come,
Doc

    1. Hey Brian, thanks! Those are just cheap door mats I bought at a flea market and cut up.
