Warlord Games - Bolt Action Pegasus Bridge Battle Set
This awesome set contains everything you need to recreate the daring raid that paved the way for the Allied D-Day invasion.
The mission, in the opening minutes of the Normandy landings, was to capture the Bénouville Bridge and the nearby Ranville Bridge in order to prevent German reinforcements from reaching the beaches, where Allied forces were pouring ashore. 180 men, led by Major John Howard, landed close to their targets in gliders. Using the element of surprise, they were tasked with seizing the bridges, and more importantly, hold them against the inevitable German counter attack. Bénouville Bridge was later renamed Pegasus Bridge, in reference to the shoulder emblem worn by the British Airborne forces.
Using the contents of the battle set, you can really set the scene for this pivotal battle. The centrepiece is a laser-cut model of the bridge itself, accompanied by models of the Cafe Gondre, as well as a pill box, a gun pit and even two telegraph poles!
Next come the forces themselves - for the defenders,
20 German infantry, backed up with a
5cm KwK 39 anti-tank gun and MG42 machine gun team.
The attackers are a 10-man British Airborne squad plus a
2-man PIAT team, and an exclusive model of Major John Howard, which is only available in this set. You'll also get decal sheets for both the sides to help you prepare your forces for battle.
Last but not least the box includes a scenario booklet that describes how to set up and fight the battle for Pegasus Bridge. (Remember, this is a supplement for the Bolt Action game, so you'll need a copy of the core rules too!)
