I have been setting up Operation Market Garden using my kallistra - Memoir 44 - nearly ready but to complete the set up I am waiting for another pending delivery.
I have had a few problems with the roads. Kallistra make all the necessary pieces - but the left & right fork and four way pieces are made as a double hex with a straight. Often setting up Memoir 44 scenarios the adjoining straight is not required.
[I am also keen to set up Borg's "The Great War" trench scenarios using kallistra - one scenario has been made available to the public so far. Kallistra's range of trenches suffers from a similar problem with the left and right fork pieces - I hope kallistra can extend the range slightly to accommodate the extra possible single hex pieces.]
Here are my pictures of Operation Market Garden:
The whole market garden set up (still needing a few more roads and tree hexes): British Airborne - looks like they are going to have a tough time: Spot the german tiger: (this is a king tiger model) American airborne: Look forward to my kallistra order coming this week and having a game soon.
Thank you for the reply. There are still some more possibilities with the trenches e.g. a single hex trench which goes left as well as straight. A single hex trench that goes right as well as straight. And a single four way trench piece. As soon as you add a straight to any of these pieces it restricts their use and also in the case of the four way piece there is another possibility as well as the restriction].
The roads also have this limitation. The roads though are fairly flat and there are pieces available that can be cut though this is not perfect as leaves a rougher unfinished side. The trenches are moulded into shape so I think it would be better to have the single hexes moulded and cutting may not be possible to get all the shapes.
Thank you for your post. Its the scenario used in the classic film "A Bridge Too Far" which has a really great cast!
Here is a picture of the British XXX coming to the rescue.
Thank you Sally for sending me the "road junctions" by special order - very nicely finished - they are great.
Here are my pics of the finished market garden setup.
