12th Pz.SS Division

The opposing force is based on the well armed HJ "baby division", playable also as any Waffen-SS platoon. They saw much of the action around Caen and the Falaise sector. A lot of city-fight and blockage combat against the Canadians.

101st Airborne Platoon

Painted these some time ago. Very inspired by the Band of Brothers series, they are meant to be used for scenarios and mini campaigns in Normandy and Holland. Currahee !

Albert Foiret

During occupied Belgium, members of a resistance group called Lifeline organized the return of RAF pilots to Great Britain. Their leader is Albert Foiret. Their base of operations is located in  cafe-restaurant : "Le Candide" on the Grand Place in Brussels. The complete story is told in the BBC series "Secret Army" over three seasons. Check on You Tube:

Albert Foiret, owner of Le Candide.

Since it's Christine's favorite WWII series, I hope this will make a nice birthday present.
