Channel Islands Invasion

Being an avid WW2 gamer (well actually playing seems to be a mission) I have always wanted to have some solo actions of  a larger campaign. The Channel Islands always took my interest as they are both small, and allow for European forces to battle it out in small scale.

I was lucky enough to visit the Channel islands almost twenty years ago for work when an unnamed
pension fund was looking into Tax Havens.I also grew up with Thomas the Tank Engine so after finding some interesting maps of Sodor I have been tempted to combine the two together and make it a new channel island.

I would at some stage like to have some type of Invasion campaign using this map as it is filled with objectives (mines, ports, airfields etc) however I shall start off by simply getting use to smaller actions solo  (Small Commando raids, patrol actions) so that I can get used to the FightYourOwnbattle Mechanics and also streamline what I want to achieve.

I don't recall whether I saw this posting earlier, but I have an idea I have a map of Sodor kicking around somewhere. I have a feeling any invasion on this sort of scale would have only light armour, if any at all. I would suggest the defenders have something of the sort, and the invasion be a combined sea and airborne operation. Would be quite fun I reckon.
