Carentan 1944 anniversary game - playtest

My friend Jean-Louis at the Guerriers du Marais wargames club in Normandy would like to do a game next year to mark the 75th anniversary of the battle for Carentan. We have therefore created a scenario covering a week of battle, 7-13 June 1944, and this week saw its first playtest.

We are fortunate to have in our group a master craftsman, Colin, whose blog shows you some of his modelling techniques. Colin's work has taken him to remote places such as Mongolia and Tibet where opportunities for entertainment are limited. Consequently he has whiled away many long hours painting gorgeous 6mm armies and scratchbuilding historically accurate buildings for Normandy - in fact, as luck would have it, actually from Carentan.
