Certainly not something I'd normally bother with, however, some civilians have their uses. Each stand represents a group of 5-10 people, and are for the Norway raid scenario I have been planning - guest starring Paul as the Germans. Each turn they move a random distance in a random direction, and if they come within an inch of a military stand during this time then they take casualties until they are eliminated. The side that delivered the damage gives the other one victory point. Small CD scenarios often have special rules or details to fit with the historical requirements, just something a bit different.
