Don't panic, don't panic!

Just a few photos of a recent Friday night game.

It involved the Home Guard, the local police force, the crew from a shot down German bomber, a highly trained unit of German Para's and a very unhappy German General.

I can't reveal too much as we intend to do this game again with the Southern Strategists.
However it was a very close and enjoyable game that came right down to the very last turn and in fact the very last shot of the game.

Finished painting the Verger, from the Dad's Army, set in time for the game.

Hodges on the lookout.



All quiet, for now.

The plane crew head for cover.

Home Guard on the move

The Germans in ambush.


The police want in on the action.


I think there is something in the rules about using cows as cover.






Some of the Para's trying to get to safety.



A shoot out going here.

The lovely Para's are from Brad's collection and the police and some civilians are from Geoff's collection.
