The first battle with my son went well, using some rules I found around the internet, I set up the scenario for the boys. The players were my son Jarrett and his best friend harry. The scenario was the Nazis had discovered a working dimensional gate and were using it
to acquire allies to win the war. I built a Star gate and finished painting over 40 Nazi troopers for the battle. The boys had a mix force of American and British commandos and five super heroes, captain

The battle started with my son taking a team of British commandos, The Slayer, and Lobster Johnson rushing up a fortified hill where the heavy bunkers kept the main force pinned with heavy machine gun fire.
He lost about 50% of the commandos rushing the bunkers, but Johnson and the Slayer reached the cusp of the hill, but where attacked in close combat by a squad of infantry and the super soldier Fritz.

Captain American ran past the skirmish and attacked the Nazi infantry next to the gate, attacking a squad of 5 and killing three troopers and routing the rest. Ruprecht Kroenen and The red skull charged Captain
While the battles rage around the table, The Doctor warped in by TARDIS and deactivated the gate with his sonic screwdriver. The British with the help of Lobster Johnson captured the bunkers, and Captain
