Here you have it, a scenario for the newly re-released Hell By Daylight rules.

A small German recce force tries to discover just where the Home Guard are dug in. September 1940

Thanks for this Jim. I bought the rules yesterday and they look very interesting. There were a few things I wasn't sure about on a first read through but your report at the end of the scenario cleared them up nicely.
I want to use them for Vietnam with the Skirmish Campaigns Hamburger Hill scenario book. Have you ever used them for Vietnam?

We had many many games set in Vietnam over the years. The M79 thumper isn't mentioned by name but look on the Heavy weapon direct fire and on-table indirect for 40mm grenade
When using it to fire buckshot we just treated it as a shotgun

Hi Jim,
Thanks for this. I'll definitey give Hell by Daylight a whirl for Vietnam.
All the best,

I've got a solo 'campaign' coming up, it'll be out in the next couple of days on the blog. It's for the Viet Cong. They're trying to run a nice peaceful rear echelon and these pesky American guerrillas keep upsetting things :-)
