As one of the games played this month at the monthly meeting of the DWG, this Battle of Stonne scenario gave us the chance to try out Fireball Forward 2nd Edition rules


Much fun was had and the rules played very well in this entertaining scenario.

If you would like to see how things played out, just follow the link to the club blog


If you are also looking to join a wargames club here in Devon then you might like to come along and check us out. We regularly play three different games a month right across the spectrum, specialising in historical wargaming and always aim to get visitors involved in a game on their first visit. You should also know that the first visit is free allowing you to decide if you would like to join us on a regular basis.

Details about where we meet and when are on the club blog together with plenty of examples of the kind of games we like to play.

Starting this month we are running a trial period of mid monthly meetings, details of which can be obtained by contacting the club via the the blog.

What a small world. Yesterday I decided I wanted to use my 6mm French figures with the Company Commander rules, and I spent the evening gathering info about the battles at Stonne.

If you are interested in the battle of Stonne in 1940 there are three detailed scenarios reflecting the course of the battle over the period 15 16 May 1940 in my French scenario pack.
Some write ups and more information at:



In particular, these have useful period maps of the area. The third link gives an example (at the end) of a complete scenario. Contact me at
