Had a very short discussion with Michael on Sunday and described my idea of following on from our Firestorm Market Garden Weekend, that I would like to host a Battel of the Bulge… or Bastogne weekend.
Now even though the Axis side won last game… this does still make it fit nicley into the next big event in Late war… of course a Hurtgen Forrest would be great… but lets not forget that was a very very bloody battle zone.
Any how… Thought I might put togehter a custom map.. get it printed and play the same set up as last time… with a few tweeks.
Now be yee oportunity… to have ye say in such said matters …
Speak now… please.
Intended time is late february next year. Can be earlier.
At this stage all required figures are availabel except for…
German light IG’s
USA Airborne Mortars

All senarios played as snow even if terrain is distinctivly summer like out side. You see I am trying tom make the table weather the opposite of what is actually outside vis a vi last game day snow up to your elbows outside.)
