Operation Claymore Phase one

Operation Claymore was the code name for a British Commando raid on the Lofoten Islands in Norway during the Second World War. The Lofoten Islands were an important center for the production of fish oil and glycerine, used in the German war industry.   The landings were carried out on 4 march 1941, by the No 3 & No 4 Commando Royal Engineers Section and 52 men from the Royal Norwegian Navy. Supported by the 6th Destroyer Flotilla and two troop transports of the Royal Navy. The original plan was to avoid contact with the German Forces and inflict maximum damage to the German-controlled industry.

Phase one is to destroy the relay station before the main body of troops arrive.

WW2 RPG Operation White House.

A few weeks background I found this RPG game called Operation White House.   It turns out the game is basically D & D role player.  The difference is your playing WW2 Special Ops.  The party is 3 to 6 players.   You can be commandos, SAS, OSS, Paratroops or any small group action.

The character class are

Charmer  ( Basically a Bard)
Tactician\ ( Brains of the Operation)
Combat engineer (The person that likes to blow things up)

Plus a couple of other classes I won't go into.   Planning to have our groups first game on the 4th of Feb.  The operation is a raid into Norway.   This was the first big commando raid into Norway.  Been digging through my figures.  I have most of them.

RPG and Miniature gaming bar in Austin, TX

If you live in the Austin,TX this could be for you.  Here is their intro.

Vigilante is an audacious, excellence-driven board game bar especially designed for the modern, grown-up nerd (we think that’s a compliment). We are an unabashedly welcoming place for people who enjoy quality beer, board games, and great company whether you’re a casual observer or a die-hard fan of nerd-dom. Our goal is to serve as a home away from home (with a far better beer selection and a craft kitchen) where people can return again and again to play their favorite games, hang out with friends and make new ones. Everyone is welcome, and everyone’s a Vigilante.

Well I broke down, bought the game.  The miniatures are amazing the box is full of goodies. The game play is straight forward play.   The next in the the series is the companion box...   Oh my this is going to be like crack.  This second box allows solo play, adds more to the character.  Like in D & D and Pathfinder you can specialize your character.   Well I can go on an on. It is easier to watch the video.   Caution this could make you spend your hard earn cash......
