Piles of Panzers

Sorting out the toys for next Saturday's Megablitz game is now well under way.  The game scenario is loosely based on the Panzer breakthrough in mid-May 1940 and will involve no fewer than seven Panzer Divisions - as far as I know this is a record number for a Megablitz game!  To even my own surprise, I am providing six of them, with John A bringing along his own 8PD.
It occurred to me that you might want to ogle the toys.  Also it will intimidate the French players...
As usual, I am using what I have so the divisional numbers aren't all accurate.  I'll begin with the Fuhrer's armoured might.  Above is the veteran 19PD, formed in the late 1990s.
 23 PD - a relatively (c,10 years) new unit.
 11PD - formed around the same time as 23.
 7PD - Rommel's lads.
 2PD - my original and highest mileage Megablitz unit.
 14 PD - some of the oldest models I own. 
 3 Motorised Division.

Let me know if you'd like a closer look at any of these divisions.
Next - more Germans.

Its an Airfix Opel Blitz with a Roco bridge section. I'll do a post on 3mot after the game (but you may need to remind me...)

Looks like a target-rich environment for the French!

All they need is something to stop them with.

All the best,

Sounds like a job for young General Coer Du Roi and his DCR....

I'm happy to see the 14 PD hit the table...it's one of my quirky favorites!

14PD seems to have quite a following!

Like to think JR is smiling, God rest him.

Nice thought Don. For those wondering what we're on about have a look at this earlier post: http://megablitzandmore.blogspot.co.uk/2010/09/14-panzer-division.html
