Home Guard Group?

Postby thompy1993 » Sat Aug 28, 2010 5:46 pm

Hi guys, after seeing all the interest in the HG for Op Sealion i was thinking about starting a group on the forum for the Home Guarders online. Any thoughts?

Why not, there are quite a few of us either showing an interest in Home Guard or already putting the kit together.
Must be an age thing :(

Ha, it sounds just like my re-enactment group really! Every one else is 50 plus, then there is me!

Sorry can't resist it.

There'll be a load of us old codgers so you'll feel at home. For the record I will not be portraying mainwaring - just got off the beach at dunkirk - honest.

Nice idea, but unless relying on the few games with 'alternative history' scenarios and also based around the invasion of England; who'd you fight against?

A forum for "other allied" might be a good idea, a suitable home for the Irregulars like the Home Guard/resistance and "other strangeness" (French, Polish etc). Just like the axis have a general forum.

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.

Well, going off at a tangent of What ifs' and alternative history, "A Very British Civil War" is proving popular in tabletop wargame circles.

It's actually something myself and Gadge have discussed at length, but we can't see it taking off in airsoft, tbh.
