Battlegroup Article in Latest WSS Magazine

Postby Piers » 10 Aug 2016

Just a heads up...

This month's WSS has a liberation of Arnhem scenario in it for Battlegroup this month.

Just downloaded my copy great article and scenarios particularly useful for me. Just waiting for Zvezda to release their Jagdpanther so I can complete forces for the first, second will take a bit more work. Perhaps I'm missing it but I can't seem to see any reference to scenario size.

What are the numbers of the issues that got BG related material? I'd like to order them but I'm not sure which they are.

Downloaded my pdf version. Piers, were the early war tanks in the Kampfgruppe in their original paint scheme or would they have been repainted in dunkelgelb?

Link is for a different unit which operated in the area but I'm pretty sure they were in Dunkelgelb by then either with or without camo. One of the 4.7cm SP was ko'd on Hells Highway and was in Dunkelgelb. The Flammpanzer also were when Arnhem was liberated in 45.

I would say the same for KG Schulz. There was an early StuG also ko'd on Hells Highway possibly from this unit in plain dunkelgelb which was inspiration for this.

Image

Panzer I ko'd in Nijmegen was in full 3 colour camo.

Pictures of these are in Market Garden Then and Now iirc.

Panzer II pictured in Opheusden October 44 also dunkelgelb

Image

I'm painting a Zvezda model to represent this at the moment
