Yes Gentle readers , after almost four years in their boxes the 15mm Moderns collections gets a short run out.
|British Challenger tanks with added stowage. 15mm Old Glory models. Painted by me.
The Tantobie Warfare and Tactical Society met last Saturday in our newish venue for the July game.
Andrew the Tekkie was in the chair and decided on a Moderns game using my 15mm Brits and 'Harrquis'- which are not at all for the Gulf Wars (!) Rules were a new set to us- Cold War Commander- second Edition.
To be honest I was a bit sceptical as Cold War Commander had filled me with ire and tedium when we tried it and I suspected the same here. But no there were much better. A full game report will appear in due course on Andrew's Blog Tantobie Internet Tattle so suffice it to say that I rather liked these- a bit dice heavy and slow until you get to know them- the IGOUGO system slows things down as always- but they do have something so they are not to be consigned straight to the bin like the first edition.
I can defintely see these being used again.
|Warrior IFV's some with WRAP extra armour infantry behind- in game terms actuall in the vehicles of course. Old Glory Models again painted by me.
Pictures are all from my own collection. Most of the models both Vehicles and infantry are from the Old Glory Command Decision Moderns range.
|The only game shot I took. British recon bugs out as the enemy appear while the Challengers move up to engage. T-72s and BMP s Again all Old Glory Models in 15mm from my own collection.
