On the eve of the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, it is perhaps fitting to advertise Pegasus Bridge, where the first shots of D-Day were fired on the ground.
Perhaps one of the most iconic landmarks of World War 2, up until recently it was difficult to get hold of a model of this bridge for gaming. However, there are now numerous versions available in different scales…
The first was produced for Warlord Games (above)in MDF, 28mm scale and included in their Pegasus Bridge starter set for Bolt Action. It included the Cafe Gondree and the Bunker. This set is available for £175.
Next up was a 15mm MDF version of the bridge which was released at Salute from Warbases. There is a scenery bundle available which includes the Cafe Gondree, Bunker, HQ and School House. This is priced at £90. All the buildings are available separately, with the bridge costing £60 on it’s own.
4Ground have got in on the act, releasing no less than three different versions in MDF. These are all ready-painted.
Finally, German company Najewitz Modellbau have just announced a 1:72 resin model of the bridge, due to go on sale next week, priced at EUR 54
So, that’s two in each of 15mm, 20mm and 28mm scale.
4Ground has the cheapest in 15mm with the added bonus of it being painted. Najewitz Modellbau’s resin version is much cheaper than the 4Ground version (though unpainted) and the Warlord set looks to be the best deal in 28mm, although again, you will have to get your paint brushes out.
