I'm coming over for the first time ever, looking forward to meeting German gamers, and catching up with some old friends.

I'll be travelling with Wargames Illustrated, so I can be found hanging around the WI stand.

I'm happy to hear that it's taking place again. :) However, it seems that I learnt about this unusual date far too late (some three weeks ago). My spring and summer were extremely hectic for many reasons, including various other events coming back from their hiatus. Thereby I had no time or reason to check the Tactica site for news. This came as a total surprise.

There are still kind of realistic flights, but the hotel situation looks really grim. :( Having to watch my finances closely this year also complicates the matter.

Is there any news regarding 2023, though? The usual slot? Something else? I'd like to hear about that one early enough. ;)

Hi,

Tactica starts at Saturday in Hamburg. It is Germanys best wargames show with outstanding wargaming boards and brilliant painted miniatures. A must visit.

I am hosting together with Sven and Gunnar the D Day Game. Omaha Beach Dog Green Sector. First Wave.

The boards were build by Frank Becker and his great talent in creating, painting and building things. He did also a lot of research on this historical project which sets a new standard in ww2 gaming boards imho.

I had the honour to help a little bit with painting some figures and vehicles and small stuff so did Gunnar, Sven and Vasa.  We are presenting this game on  Saturday and Sunday. Here are some pictures without action and below is the mission briefing for gamers who like to attend.












Good morning gentlemen !

Today will be a day to remember. Forever ! Its not your wedding day, your firstborn son`s birthday, your first home run or your first date with your high school sweetheart.

Today is D Day - 6th of June 1944. You will remember this day forever. Because it will be the day you changed the world.

We will kick open the door into Fortress Europe and show the Germans how Americans can fight.

We have the willpower, we have the strength and we have God on our side.

You all heard, and hopefully read, General Eisenhower's speech. It will not be an easy walk but if the guys from the Air Force did a halfway good job, the Nazis will be buried under a pile of rubble and dirt.

You are the first wave. Well trained and well equipped. You will push the rest of them outta the Goddamn way and enter this so called Fortress Europe to bring freedom and remove Dictators.

Your Mission

Open a corridor for the following troops. You have your demo charges, you have dozer tanks. If that does not work you have your God given hands. Air recon said you only have to remove two lines of obstacles. Let`s go.

    The Krauts have bunkers on the beach. They could be equipped with any sort of weapon. Could be the Ack Ack, Anti Tank Guns or the damned Hitler Buzzaw. We do not know exactly. What we know is that the beach is circled and a frightful deathtrap. Destroy those bunkers. Kill the bunker crew or destroy the weapons, grill them like a Texas BBQ with flame throwers.

    Either way is fine with me. Knock out those bunkers.

    When you are done with the bunkers you're almost there. There is a concrete wall on the beach road. You have to destroy it. Blow it to pieces with your demo charges. Open the way off the beach for the following troops. Clear the road inland. You will get support from the Rangers if they are right on time.

      Good luck to you and your men. Teach the Herren from the Wehrmacht a lesson they will never forget. God Bless you and God Bless the United States of America.

That looks amazing Björn  :-* :-* :-*

Frank has not lost his touch!

I hope the games went well. I’ll definitely try to get back to Tactica in the next year or two. Such a fantastic show and with so many beautifully staged games.

Great work from you and your band of friends organising this game. Looks absolutely wonderful. Well done to all.

I think you should have a look in the next weeks to the Website: https://www.hamburger-tactica.de/
There will come pictures of the Gaming Boards and the event. But all the guys are tired after this show.
