One of my next batch of scenarios dealing with the German invasion of the Netherlands, May 1940.

This one deals with the French delaying SS 'Deutschland' near the village of Diessen.

Awesome report! Makes me want to get back to my early war project! I have many of these models on my workbench!

Holy cow! Wonderful analysis and preparation for your scenario – and on top of splendid terrain and a superb collection.
Top notch!

Very nice models, terrain, and AAR … That is one of my favorite periods in WWII to game & study !

Wonderful a AAR and set up notes! Great looking figures. Your 222 still has mirrors! Thanks for posting.

Nicely done and great AAR!

Great game as always. I did Hannult at NashCon partially based on your scenario (it will be reprised at Historicon). (Again if you mgk's 1940 scenario packs – get them a great bargain – useable in any atomic platoon level game.)

I recognize the Pegasus SS (great box of early war SS).

But the French light tanks? Early War Miniatures?

Lafleys? No one makes them in plastic to my knowledge.

Any info on vehicle sources/recommendations appreciated.

Thanks for your kind comments TT.

The French light tanks are AMR 35s with both the 7.5mm and 13.2mm machine gun. Mine are both resin from Propaganda Company (now defunct), and most are scratch built. They are available in metal from Early War Miniatures.

The Lafley V15 and the Latil M7 light trucks are also made by Early War Miniatures, a company that I have dealt with several times and I have always found their service superb.

Agree about Early War Miniatures – I'e had great service here in the US from them.

Saving up for an order now…
