Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish: Army Bundle 1 - Section M
"More than one player of Achtung! Chtulhu must have thought how cool a wargame with the same premise as the RPG would have been where the action is even more brutal and the battle objectives even better defined. Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish is the answer to that line of thinking ... A!CS will be instantly compared to other alternative WWII games out there, and easily holds its ground, and has a few aces up its sleeves, both in fluff as well as crunch." RPG Net review.

An army is built from the ground up and you'll receive 20 x Badger's Commando miniatures in two Badger's Commandos Unit packs. Brave and bold, these Allied commandos are used to operating deep behind enemy lines, on a variety of covert operations. Well versed in fighting both conventional Axis forces and the horrors unleashed in the Secret War, they are a unit of crack troops highly trained and ready to operate by land, sea and air. Armed with a variety of lethal Blevins Steam Guns, these brave soldiers form the bulk of the Allied special forces opposing the Black Sun and remain a mobile, formidable and ferocious fighting force.
Contains: 16 x 28mm Commandos with Blevin Rifles, 4 x Commandos with Blevin Carbines
Of course an army also requires strong leadership and dauntless heroes and in command is s Captain Eric 'Badger' Harris and his anti-mythos steam gun cooked up by the chaps at Section M, French Resistance agent Ariane Dubois with the terrifying creature that let her live so it might feed on Nazi souls and Corporal Akhee 'The Eye' Singh who utters a few words and fights like an ancient hero as 'the eye' slowly opens - though each time, he knows that if the eye stays open, the world will end. Ariane can have her creature removed to create a normal investigator.
Contains: 3 x 28mm miniatures of Eric "Badger" Harris, Corporal Akhee "The Eye" Singh, Ariane Dubious
Capt.Harris: "The Commandos scaled the incline quickly. The strange weeds that chocked the ground didn't seem to bother them at all. Their leader a dapper man with a peppered moustache, seemed quite jovial. That is, until the swarm began to rise from the mound. Then with a grim steel in his eyes, he methodically boiled them in their armoured hides with his hissing steam gun.""
Ariane Dubois: "As the creature drew close, I saw her. Petite, almost childlike it seemed. And yet, within her eyes, a steely hardness that suggested that they had witnessed past horrors. As the bat-like imp that bestrode her shoulder gibbered with glee, she drew her Mauser and fired thrice. In a moment, the fiend that hunted me lay dead."
Akhee Singh: "The creatures were interrupted by a blinding light, which filled the dank chamber. As it faded, our eyes adjusted to see a bearded man standing in the cavern mouth. The first creature rushed towards him, claws outstretched, the the lone figured seemed to expect this attack and gracefully sidestepped, slicing down with a wickedly sharp Kirpan. The creature's arm was severed neatly as he advanced on the gibbering horde, intoning a prayer in a language we scarce knew."
