Battlegroup Panzergrenadier

Mersa Brega, Western Desert,1941

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 10mm Last week Sandy Gillespie and I discussed the possibility of staging a small WW2 game, as I hadn’t yet tried out the new “deluxe” version of Battlegroup Panzergrenadier. These used to be a staple rules set of ours, but they got set aside as we got caught up in

El Adem, Western Desert, 1941

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 10mm Just for a change we got the “peedie tanks” out. “Peedie” is the Orkney word for “small”, and what better way to describe 10-12mm tanks than that. The game was played out on a 10×6 foot table, using Battlegroup Panzergrenadier. I know a new Panzergrenadier Deluxe set has

Beda Fomm, 1941

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 10mm This wasn’t the prettiest game I’ve ever played. The Italian player forgot to bring the terrain mat, and so we were reduced to playing on a bare wooden table, with green hills covered in muslin bags we found in a store cupboard, by way of terrain,. Still, this

Durham Ridge, 1941

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 12mm This small game was played out in Orkney, between Angus and his oppo Mark.

The Cahagnes Road, 1944

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 15mm This game set in Normandy was a “reconnaissance in force” , with the British probing German positions to the south-east of Caumont. It was based on the situation in the first week of August 1944, after the first day of Operation Bluecoat – the British attempt to break

Sept Vets, 1944

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 15mm Operation Bluecoat in late July and early August 1944 was a British attempt to break the deadlock in Normandy. The Americas had launched operation Cobra, and the British were trying to put so much pressure on the German line that it broke. Our game was based on the

Ouvrage de Saint-Hubert, 1944

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 15mm This little game was set amid the initial American attacks on the West Wall around Metz. The US 5th Infantry Division is probing forward towards the German positions to the north-west of Metz, and this game involves a small mixed-arms column of theirs. The German defenders were from the

The Troina Road, 1943

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm We hadn’t played a 20mm Second World War game for a while (not since last September), so we decided it was time to give our lead and plastic another outing. Besides, as a club debate about membership rates was scheduled, we thought a small fast-playing game was the
