Before I forget or life gets in the way, I wanted to post the final product for the "Biazza Ridge" scenario for Battlegroup. For those just joining, see the former posts on developing this scenario including the order of battle and scenario considerations.
|Tried to make it look as close to a "Battlegroup" scenario from a rulebook as me and my Powerpoint skills could...|
I built the map into the scenario PDF (thank you again to "Jay's Wargaming Madness" for the map template) so be sure to check out the link here or at right!
BE ADVISED: As of 3/6/22, I have not playtested this scenario but I am looking forward to soon. If you do play it, be sure to let me know how it went for you? I plan on playing it next when my gang gets together, and will obviously post!
In the meantime, to get the creativity flowing, be sure to check out some pics of the forces for the game!

|Hermann Goering Troopers. I had alot of fun painting the disparate uniform mix of desert/ tropical field gear, and standard field gear.|
Other Rules Sets?
This scenario could also be modified to be played with other rules including Rapid Fire, Flames of War, Crossfire, or other popular WWII rules. I am tempted to play this scenario with the "Flames of War" "Dustup" scenario from the rule book using the US para list from D-Day and the "Iron Cross" books. And for all of my Brit readers out there, I'm tempted to put a "Primasole Bridge" scenario together next, keeping with the Operation Husky theme of late.

Thanks for looking and if you play, be sure to check in and let us know how it went! Again, I will playtest as soon as I can get my gang together.
