Another scenario in my growing series depicting the Belgian experience in their 18-day campaign in 1940. This one covers the German 1st Panzer Division's advance through the eastern part of Belgian, including the heroic Belgian resistance at Bodange.

Always good to see your work.

Hi MGK,

I've seen a few of your games here and am really impressed by your modular terrain. In my opinion it is pretty unique and very good to represent a battlefield. The villages look good and I remember seeing your city with a paratroop attack. Would love to see a tutorial on how you do your terrain.

Thank you very much for your comments and praise for my modular terrain. It fulfills for me the triad that is always in tension between modularity, representation and ease of play. It does take awhile to set up, but I enjoy modelling terrain as much as I do modelling troops; if you paint helmet decals on 20mm troops then you will have the necessary patience.

I'll take some photos of the individual pieces that should help explain how I make the system and post in a few days.

Thanks

Michael

I sometimes look at your work and wish I'd stuck to that scale. Imagine the time I would now have to play with the models rather than endlessly chasing 15mm and 28mm versions and having to keep painting over and over.

There are few virtues attached to being stubborn, but sticking with the one scale is certainly one of them!

Great stuff,

I do enjoy the Belgian games and have written a few scenarios myself and played Bondage twice.

Every WWII gamer should have a basic collection of 20mm vehicles and equipment. That way you are set up to play any WWII game – not just the marketing monsters that dominate 15mm & 28mm.

20mm makes a great universal scale that we can all have an inexpensive basic collection of allowing us to play lots of different WWII games.
