Here is the protagonist squad for the coming solo Nuts! campaign set on the eastern front during Operation Barbarossa. I have the full platoon as well, all generated using the standard random tables in the Nuts! set, supplemented by the Clash of Titans supplement.
My intention is to run something like 6 game/scenarios, plotting the course of a section in the Das Reich division of Army group Centre as they advance into Russia… and then stall. The ultimate goal is to explore the Nuts! rules fully and to see how the initially easy situation that gave way to failure affects the survival of a group of named individuals. This is a true skirmish level story-telling wargame campaign, in much the same way as The Last Valley was/is for a similar group of murderous German bastards.
Here, then, is the protagonist squad led by Scharfuhrer Zeslaus Helemann, an arrogant piece of shit, but an effective leader of men, apparently.
