Refighting Arnhem - again

One of our best Crisis games was a kriegspiel like refight of Arnhem on a big custom made terrain, which we schlepped around the shows in 2005/2006. That terrain has since been destroyed (I decided not to take it along on my latest house move), but parts of it -- notably the trees, buildings and railroad -- were recovered.

I spent the last couple of weeks setting up a Kallistra based terrain using this scenery, together with quite a lot of new 3D-printed houses to come up with this:

This time the terrain does not feature the drop zones and villages around them, but starts with the woods west of Oosterbeek and continues to Arnhem. Obviously, some of the forest bases need to be painted and populated with trees (I've got a good sized box of trees left) and the 3D printed houses need to be painted, but this is pretty much the table I'm going to use. The idea is to have the paras land in the fields in the lower right corner (a bit closer to Arnhem then they landed historically) and see where they end up. 

Rules used in the game will probably be Rommel by Sam Mustafa. 

More to follow :)
