Here are some pictures from a Mein Panzer game I ran back in 2018 at Imperial Outpost Games in Glendale, AZ.

This was a game I put on to get new players into the game and I was able to get three players plus my friend, Scott, to help run things.

For this one, we just used tanks with 2 British reduced squadrons taking on 2 reduced German companies with each player controlling 10 tanks in 3 platoons each with a HQ tank for each squadron or company. The scale is 1/285th.

It was a meeting engagement with both sides starting off the map and a village in the middle to create a focal point. Points were scored for kills as well as control of the crossroads in the town.

The game lasted about 3 hours and was very bloody with the Germans securing the win but everyone had a great time which is what this hobby is all about.

Great presentation value for a introduction-type scenario – and this is what brings people to the table, right!

I can discern a few ridges on the 'northern' side of the battlefield to be maneuvered off of (bet there was more on the board that we can't make out here from the pics, Pete?).

Heck, I'd enjoy playing in this encounter too, and would feel treated to play with such good looking stuff!

Here are a couple more pictures with emphasis on the subtle undulations I created on this layout. I used GHQ Terrain Maker but made the slope hexes 1/2 inch which gives a more gentle slope than the standard 1 inch slope.

Thanks very much, Frostie and FlyXwire!

Thank you very much, Frederick! It was a fun game and a good basic introduction to the rules for those that played.

Oooh, I like seeing Western Desert games in 6mm.
Good show.

I like the way you represented the desert and the incredible amount of details you've painted.

Thanks very much Coopman and Valderian. I will post more pictures of games soon.
