Commando War comics have many story threads that just 'cry out' to be re-worked as gaming scenarios and in a game system like Flintloque or Slaughterloo the more outlandish the better. In fact the next time you are struggling for a new gaming scenario, what ever the genre try searching Commando War Comics on Google or e-bay. Operation Hammer, Bailey's Raiders, The Fighting Cowboys, The Lucky Helmet are just a few of the titles that just cry out to be converted to gaming scenarios. There are also such titles as Save the Eagle - a Romano-British based story or Nazi's in Space to get the creative juices flowing or even Gladiator Challenge for the more Sci-Fi orientated.
Remember that Starblazer - the pulp Sci-Fi alternative is also full of great inspiration. So the next time you are looking for a not-so-original gaming scenario, Commando Comics maybe your best friend and offer that illusive thing called fun. In addition they are usually great, reads.
The Regimental Spoon is not a Napoleonic story. It is a story that has its origins in the Peninsular War, but the story develops from modern Afghanistan, back in time to the Napoleonic War, and then via the India Mutiny, the Zulu Wars, WW1 and WW2. It is actually a story of a family of British soldiers through the ages rather than just about the Napoleonic War.
There are however dedicated Commando Comics that are just based during the Napoleonic War as there are others for the Vikings, Romano Brits and even the American Civil War not to mention Vietnam, Korea and The Gulf Wars.
If I ever win the lottery I would love to see a Foul Mouth Freddy story drawn as a Commando Comic strip.
