All over it ;)

Need to draw the interior first so it can cover later war too

Excellent.

What scale is your print?

I just wondered between 1/56,  scaled so the figures fit and 1/48-50

1/56 - bit tight for heroic infantry but consistent with the other vehicles (It's bloody tiny!)

Yep, it's a pain, but it has to be done. Looking forward to seeing these finished.

Me too lol

I'm 5 rifles short of my extra section.  So I was wondering about other battlefield roles.  Possibly stretcher bearers or similar?

Is that 5 riflemen short, or 5 rifles?

Oooo - I'll be on the lookout for those whenever they come available!   :)

Might I (humbly) suggest some of them with tunics opened to reveal "unit t-shirts" underneath?
Refer to http://canadiansoldiers.com/uniforms/unitshirt.htm



If you don't have figures wearing the shirt, why not get a shirt embroidered to wear at the game?

There's an idea.  As an option, get a shirt from the King's Own Calgary Regiment's kit shop and support the regiment!  http://kingsown.ca/kit-shop/

I've written a mini-campaign type series for Bolt Action that covers all of the beaches complete with Selectors, new units and scenarios.  I'll also do similar for Chain of Command.  WSS are interested but I'l post bits up for comment.

Red/white - Dieppe main beaches with the tanks
Blue - Puys landing aiming at securing the eastern flank
Green - Pourville landing targeting the Freya radar station and the Quatre Vents farm battery
Orange/Yellow - commando raids against Hess and Geobbels batteries

Just came to this thread now, it's been a great read and I love the project.  Look forward to seeing the scenarios as a CoC version, I have Canadians ready to go, if not enough specialized Churchills (or a shingle beach, but details...).
