Just what it says on the tin – can American Eagle and the boys of the 101st defeat the evil Oberst Scharlach and his zombie minions..?

That'll learn 'em to take on the Airborne!

Great AAR

Looks like fun…

I don't think the zombies should really count as casualties unless you didn't count them as casualties the first time you killed them. Otherwise, that's double dipping!

Excellen AAR

Thanks for posting it

Thanks guys, it's good to know other people enjoyed it too.

@ Dathbain: Those trees are made very simply to the following recipe:
1. Glue a nail to a 2p piece.
2. Ram roughly cut circles of scrubbing pad onto the nail and superglue in place.
3. Glue sand to the base and spray the whole thing black.
4. Soak the tree in several coats of green paint & PVA.
5. Paint the trunk and base however you like.

@ robertsjf: I count them since the Allies aren't sure whether they died on the field, or were sacrificed by Scharlach. When in doubt, inflate!

You know that's going to cause fist fights 50 years from now when historical gamers are trying to recreate your battles!

And I loved the AAR, btw. Thanks!

That's true… I'll have to turn the screws on them a little more next time ;)

Thanks for your thanks!

An enjoyable report. Where did you come up with American Eagle?

I like it especially because I am slowly working on a Captain America set up based on that movie and several other favorite WWII movies using HotT. And my forces of Red Skull will, besides his Hydra Guard, have zombies and Werewolves based on a couple of B horror movies. I am finishing up the first unit, being Capt miller and his squad of 2nd Rangers with T5 Upham, and then will be doing Sgt John (Wayne) Stryker and his Devil Dog marines.

Anyway, I really enjoyed seeing some one else doing a similar theme in WWII.

American Eagle is a Nedor Comics hero – there's a link to a brief biography in his name on the blog. He was an early contemporary of Captain America with a similar skill set and back story, rather like a de-powered Superman.

Oddly enough, you could put together a fairly big bunch of real-life movie stars and celebrities who were fairly big in WW2:
Sterling Hayden and Julia Child were in the OSS, Ian Fleming was part of British intelligence , Jimmy Stewart, Clark Gable, and others were pilots, and a whole lot of others:

Imagine Rod Serling (11th Airborne Division demolitions man), James "Marshall Matt Dillon" Arness (wounded at Anzio), Charles Durning (Omaha Beach and Battle of the Bulge veteran), Jackie "Uncle Fester" Coogan (glider pilot), Jack Warden (airborne) as one assault group, and James Whitmore, Tyrone Power (aviator), Steve McQueen, Lee Marvin, Bob "Captain Kangaroo" Keeshan, Charles Bronson, and Don "Maxwell Smart" Adams providing support from the Marine Corps.
Such fun one could have trying to do imitations of these stars!
