The Battle of Walmington-on-Sea, Chain of Command
« on: June 27, 2018, 01:56:41 PM »
This weekend our annual gathering in North Devon saw a large CoC game recreating an imaginary action in the fictional town of Walmington in the summer of 1940 as the Germans attempt to snatch the British PM and whisk him back to Germany.



Much fun was had by all and if you would like to see how things turned out then just follow the link to JJ's

I am currently watching"Dads Army" on Netflix here in the states. It is great to see them in action. Awesome looking table and a great battle report. Well done!

I really enjoyed reading the report and looking at your excellent terrain and models.  Makes me want to dig out my 20mm Dad's Army from ages ago.

Well done!

I've never been able to take more than 2 minutes of Dad's Army, but what a great idea for a game!  Well done on the hard work with the terrain.
