[B]Whether someone designs Market Garden or not, I will be making one for Battleline.
I have a complete OOB for this campaign, as well as extensive maps (some vintage) of the entire area.
I have played this game in V4V and in CC, as well as TOAW.
It is a magnificent set piece battle.
I can't wait to design this baby!
We don't have the entire Market Garden campaign as a planned scenario, but we do have Trey Marshall working on the drive through Eindhoven and up to Nijmegen, covering everything but Arnhem. Basically "Hell's Highway".
1) The battle for Ethiopia and Italian Somaliland.
2) Battle for Singapore (Japs invade in 1941)
3) The attack on Wake Island.
I'd be concerned that Wake would be too small to really get into it. Remember 1 hex = 1 km. Wake works well as a SPWAW scenario, IMHO.
4) Invasion of Hawaii - a what of scenario
5) Several battle in China and SE Asia
6) Invasion of Norway - probable 2 separate battles (north and south Norway)
7) Attack on Crete
8) Attack on Malta
9) Attack on Gibraltar
10) Several Spanish Civil War battles
11) Invasion of Sicily
12) Several Italian campaigns.
Ludo will be particularly happy to see #11, Invasion of Sicily, as we don't have it on our official scenarios list but it's one of his favorite battles. :)
That's what I'd like to design. Some are lesser known or popular battles - but hey, how many D-Day battles are you going to play?????? [/B][/QUOTE]
Agreed, I'm a fan of the more obscure but important battles, as are many of our designers. While we plan more traditionally-themed scenario packs for the future, the initial release should have more than a few pleasant surprises for grognards.
