Having done some wargamer-scale “dabbling” in 1/300th Moderns for a while now (erm… 3 whole large armies and a lot of eBay fishing…) I’d been strangely drawn to the idea of supplementing the increasingly futuristic looking tanks and rather indistinct infantry with some SF Mechs and Walkers.
This new habit started with an unusually restrained initial outing at Warfare 2014 where I picked up a handful of Mechs and Walkers from Ground Zero Games. But then… I caved in and did some online shopping…and then integrated them with my modern Soviet and NATO forces just for good measure
I remember seeing this stuff before, and frankly it’s just inspired! It’s the kind of thing that would re-interest me in the Cold War genre – far enough removed from modern reality to make it okay for me to play games about it.
Something like this could well be my next project, once my current NF mercenary units are done.
