There are plenty of scenarios for small numbers of British troops landing in Occupied Germany, but how many are there for small numbers of German troops landing in Britain?


Who do you think you are kidding? A solo scenario.

Dad's Army at large

Plenty of good ideas in a scenario with a twist. Thanks for posting.

Already eagerly awaiting arrival of my copy of "Hell and Uncivil Disorder", so this scenario is very interesting.

Thanks for sharing this.

I always like to get unusual figures on the table, and this gives the Home Guard chance to do the things they were designed to do. It also pits them against an enemy that isn't particularly better than them as well :-)

Lovely scenario.

I've long fantasized about doing an event with a German Air crew downed in Kent trying to make for the coast. They must avoid detection through fields and forests and villages thick with civilians, Home Guard and Women's Land Army (Bad Squiddo).

The scenario is replete with special events like…

Girl Guides mistake Germans for Poles and escort them safely 3d6" SSE, crossing all terrain unnoticed.

It'd be designed that the Germans never get caught, but finally flunk morale and end up surrendering to the Vicar, a WRN dispatch rider and a WLA working party.

I had considered the German aircrew but I wanted something that might possibly be more martial. :-)
In theory my 'naval landing party' might get involved in a gun battle, but if they do that, the walls are going to close on them pretty rapidly. They would be better emulating your air crew :-)

That's quite a scenario, OP.

Well some people have called it a mini-campaign :-)
