I have a small 28mm WWII force individually based for skirmish-level games but the guys I game with never really found a set of rules at the level we liked. I think that changed with the introduction to CoC. In the past we tried Nuts! and perhaps a few others but Nuts! was not to our collective liking.
My existing WWII project consisted of about 50 figures equally split between Germans and British and begun at the time we were considering WWII small unit tactical games. These fellows last saw the paint brush in 2012 and have never seen action in a game. Given the OB of CoC, my existing troops were not sufficient to form two playable forces. To remedy that deficiency and provide myself two forces for solo play, 18 figures hit the painting desk. To bring each side up to three sections or squads, a dozen Brits and half-dozen Germans needed a coat of paint. Figures are Black Tree Design.
Below is the photo of the two platoons arrayed for review. The Germans could use a panzershreck team and it appears I fielded one surplus rifleman for each of the LMG teams.
