For a number of years now I have had a WWII skirmish project simmering away on the back-burner. In a previous post I showed off my US airborne infantry but I have documented very little on my blog since then.

Somewhere in North West Europe German forces offload to repel the allied invasion.

My collection is somewhat unusual, including as it does, a captured Char B tank, a sentry box with military policemen, planes, trains and automobiles. This is because rather than collecting and playing the more conventional WWII wargame I have decided to focus more on commando raids and special operations.

I stumbled across the fantastic skirmish rules Five men at Kursk by Nordic Weasel Games some time ago and have played several games with my US airborne forces in Normandy as they ambushed panzer grenadier convoys, blew up train tracks and generally made a nuisance of themselves…

“Where are we Sarge?”

I have, over the last couple of years, also amassed a collection of buildings for more industrial settings…

German HQ at St Peter Port, Guernsey, complete with troop barracks, Opel Blitz trucks and staff car.

I have been itching to have a go at another Nordic Weasel ruleset called Where Stenguns Dare: WWII Cinematic Commando Action. As the title suggests these rules allow you to conduct commando missions in the truest 60s war movie style…

Little do the patrolling German sentries know that commandos of the Special Boat Section, commanded by Lord Lovatt himself are lurking in the shadows.

I have completed the last few models recently which has given me the WWII bug again (and started me looking to buy some more models now I have completed everything I currently own) So I’m hoping to dare the stenguns and cause a nuisance!

“Actung Panzer, how did zey get hold of a panzer!!?”

    1. Thanks. I discovered that after the parachute landings on D-Day, the US paratroopers were counter attacked by the 91st Luftlande division who’s panzer training battalion was equipped with captured French tanks and the occupying forces on the channel islands were equipped with a couple of Char-Bs, so I had to buy one!! 😀
