Board games into war games - Memoir 44

Post by wargamer1979 » Sun Apr 05, 2015 7:02 am

Hi folks,

I have set up the first Memoir 44 board game scenario using Kallistra called "Pegasus Bridge" for a game. [The scenario uses Green American playing pieces to represent the airborne troops.]

"The late hours of June 5th 1944... Led by Major John Howard, the men of Oxford and Buckinghamshire Light infantry step aboard 6 Horsa gliders on a secret airfield in Dorset. Their mission to lead the first airborne assault of D-Day and capture two bridges, one astride the Caen Canal, the other over the Orne River, in Normandy"

Here are my pictures:

Here is the whole board set up:

"Pegasus Bridge" worth one temporary medal advantage to the British:

Germans standing by to try to protect "Orne bridge" from capture also worth one temporary medal to the British

Has anyone set up any other memoir 44 scenarios using kallistra - your pictures please?

Best wishes

Graham

I have not done M44 myself - but a few years ago at a game show, there was a game in progress using the Kallistra tiles. They had used red ribbon to section the board off into three areas.

I am thinking about doing some sections of Victory point Games 'Danube 20', but my table would not be big enough to replicate the whole boardgame map at anyone time. In the '20' series, formations are often Corps in size and that would interest me on a small table.

Hi folks

Thanks for the replies, here is another Memoir44 Scenario I have set up using kallistra:

Scenario 16 in the base set:
Severn Gap, Vosges - September 19-21, 1944

Here are my photos:

[For now I have used Tide of Iron tanks as they are slightly bigger and more detailed than the Memoir44 ones.
Although I have some plastic soldier company 15mm scale shermans to build that might look good.]

Best wishes

Graham
