Arnhem at Entoyment
« on: July 18, 2019, 04:48:56 PM »
I have just started to organise the Arnhem day at Entoymnet.
21st September 2019.
Let me know if you would like to receive the broadcast sheet I am sending out. I do forget people, sorry.
It will be constantly revised and re-sent.
dave has already volunteered to parachute into the Entoymnet parking lot. Thanks Dave.

This is mainly those that are playing the Band of Brothers and 11th Armoured reconnaissance force, meeting Engagement at Nuenen
with elements of the left flank of Panzerbrigade 107.
Initially it was myself, Colin and Mike, now Simon wants to join us on the day.
 So I am going to set up a 6 x 4 table. PBI rules as per book.
Artillery will be limited ( halve British asset points,only after turn 4 ???)
as this was more a meeting Engagement,( no time to set up proper Artillery plans ?) except for and mortars in the forces provided by you if you put them in ?
Germans are the defenders, there will be 4 Objectives on table. Table edge road junction, Crossroad junction. Church ( observation/command post) a Strong building (strong point)
Not sure whether to put the table 6 x 4 or 4 x 6 ? We could go 6 x 4 and do the game twice ? Swapping sides or the second game  ?
 Forces:
Allied.
US paras. 2 x platoons Vet. Mike or Colin ? Have these ?
6 tanks. 3 x Cromwell, 1 x Cromwell CS, 2 x Challengers.
Couple of scout cars ? Miles has these.
3 platoons of British Motorised infantry with H/T.
All British Average.
Miles has these. Will have H/T done by then.
 Germans.
3 x Panthers, 2 x jadg Pz Iv, 1 x Stug.
2/3 platoons of Fallschirmjäger (Pointed up as Volkstrum company, Raw) as these would be mainly ex Luftwaffe ground personnel.
2/3 platoons of Panzer Grenadiers with Hanomags. 251/1 and 10, and maybe 2-3 251/9 Stummel ?
The Panzer Grenadiers would be in reserve coming on not before turn 3 or 4 at least ?
 I can provide most of the tanks.
Infantry and Hanomags ? Colin ? Simon ? (Simon is painting up SS infantry as we speak) and Michael? 
I am setting a 600-700 points limit because of the amount of tanks included.
I will try and limit the long range straight shots down, by placing builds on some intervening squares where possible.

That will give you ten days to get the history straight before you play the games Simon!

No reports yet, the radios are still not working and the groups have been cut off incommunicado.

The Guards are still make their tea.
