Napoleonic Cossacks

Here we have a dozen Cossacks based individually for CCN - these are 1/72 figs from Hat. Crude, but hey, they're Cossacks! I think their use adds an interesting dimension to CCN gameplay.

US Army Vietnam

A test stand of 15mm Battlefront American Rifle Infantry. I like the sculpts, nice detail and character. I have a platoon of US infantry and M113s as well as Vietcong and NVA regulars to play with.

I dropped about $150 on this stuff after I picked up two perfectly scaled die-cast UH-1s at Target for $5 each on Boxing Day while shopping for toys with the kids. I have a good scenario in mind that appears in the Arc of Fire rulebook to run sometime in 2015.

Here are 6 bases of Gripping Beast Triarii for the MayDay game project. I've decided on a historical battle to base the scenario upon - Metaurus (207 BC) from the Second Punic War. A very important battle which saw the Romans defeat Hannibal's brother Hasdrubal Barca with his reinforcement army in the north of Italy. Hasdrubal's defeat (he lost his head too) spelled the eventual end of Hannibal's campaign in Italy.

Modern microarnour: Bundeswehr 1985

I finished some modern GHQ and CinC microarmour for a game I want to run on Tuesday using the Epic rules modified for early Cold War. Here we have Lep Is, Luchs, Raketepanzers and some infantry fireteams.
