Battlegroup Panzergrenadier

La Roguerie, 1944

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 15mm This was one of these games where I didn’t supply the figures – I actually don’t own any 15mm lead, as I claim the figures are too small for me to paint. Well, Dougie Trail has no such qualms, and his figures and vehicles are proof that you

The Calore Bridge, Salerno, 1943

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm The new edition of Battlegroup Panzergrenadier came out recently, and this was my first chance to try out the new-look rules. Quite a few things have changed, so we decided to stage a fairly small encounter game, on a 6×4 foot table. Most of the toys were mine,

Saint-Martin-de-Sallen, 1944

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 15mm Edinburgh in August is a little crazy, what with the Edinburgh Festival, the Fringe and the Book Festival all taking place at the same time. Strange things happen. For a start, I didn’t have a proper game to play, so I was reduced to playing one with 15mm

The Bend of the Don, 1942

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm This hard-fought little battle involved a German combined-arms attack against a hastily-formed Soviet defensive position, and was set somewhere near Millerovo, in the bend of the River Don, during the German advance on Stalingrad. the Russians had two defensive layers – a lightly held outer band consisting of

Crossing the Velikaya, 1941

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm This week we adapted a Charles S. Grant scenario – “Assault River Crossing” – culled from Scenarios for Wargames, 1981. We set our game in the summer of 1941, somewhere to the north of Polotsk. The Germans of the 4th Panzer Group needed to establish a bridgehead across

Biazzo Ridge, 1943

Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm This small game (fought out on a 6×4 foot table) was a scenario from Dave Brown’s forthcoming Mediterranean Theatre scenario book, for Battlegroup Panzergrenadier. Despite the dreadful name this is actually an excellent set of rules, and as the Second Edition is due out any day now, I thought

Arras, 1940

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm This was another of those scenarios from Dave Brown’s Battlegroup Panzer Grenadier scenario book. We’ve been meaning to play this one for ages, but we had to wait until we had enough German trucks. I don’t know why really – most of them were brewed up within the

Lislet, 1940

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm This was a scenario from the “Battles for the West” scenario book for Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, but I suppose it would just as well for any other similar rules. It involved a rare French attack (launched by General de Gaulle) against the flank of the advancing German columns. In

Counter-attack at Mtsensk, 1941

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm This is a scenario published in the back of the Battlegroup Panzer Grenadier rules, and again (slightly modified) in the East Front scenario book. We’ve been meaning to play it for ages, and the arrival of a new grass mat gave us the excuse – and a nice 8’x6′ battlefield.

The Derna Road, 1941

The Second World War, Battlegroup Panzergrenadier, 20mm This week my pal Chris Henry brought in his 20mm Western Desert toys, and staged a game for us which involved a British probe against a well-defended Italian strongpoint, somewhere to the south-west of Tobruk. The British didn’t expect much opposition, and so their orders (capture the Italian
