Hopefully, this scenario should now work much more cleanly (I hope), and if it does we will take it to Fiasco as a demo-game later this year. With that in prospect I have taken some steps to improve the terrain. I have made 16 feet of wadi sections (some of which is being used here); three new 'hills' for the escarpment; and a few more feet of road; I have also made the singular feature of the battlefield that is readily identifiable to those who know about this action, the feature that gives the battle its name, I have made a representation of the Sidi Rezegh Mosque (BTW, apparently, Sidi Rezegh was an Islamic holy man; something like a Christian saint). I may, at some point, try and make some more appropriate aerodrome buildings (a tin hangar and a control tower?) for the landing ground so that it looks a bit 'Hollywood'.
If this scenario does work, I will post full scenario notes and briefings. Until then.....
German infantry of Group Knabe, 8th MG Battalion and regimental troops.
More of Group Knabe, 2nd Battalion, 104th Rifle Regiment.
Group Stephan - 5th Panzer Regiment and its attached elements. It is deployed in a typical formation with artillery and infantry sandwiched between its two Panzer battalions.
Panzer II, III, and IV in roughly the right proportions with towed artillery and infantry .
The British. They are deployed in three concentric arcs. North to south: Infantry, then guns, then armour.
British infantry of 1st Btn, Kings Royal rifle Corps overlooking trig Capuzzo from their sangars.
Two regiments of 25pdrs (three of the 4 batteries) await orders.
Guns of Support Group and some of what remains of 7th Armoured Brigade.
22nd Armoured Brigade, fanning out over 4 km of desert.
The tiny Mosque of Sidi Rezegh.
One last thing, have I shown you this? Is that unit behind the flank?
I picked up this 'builders spirit level laser' from Woolworth's when it was open. It casts a straight line onto a surface rather than a one point beam. It is actually MUCH brighter than it appears here. It's great for LOS - £5 well spent! The photo is from one of the previous re-fights of this action. I was commanding the valiant 22nd. BTW, umpires call - Not Out.
