I’ve always liked scenarios that involve a commander desperately trying to cobble together some sort of defense with a hodge podge collection of troops. (Which might be why I really don’t like rules where all the “strategy” tends to begin and end with points list building).
I can only wish I had the figure collection to field the Brigade model train on a table full of Iliada buildings! As my 6mm SF collection almost all old GW Epic, this particular 6mm Grimdark train looks tempting –
I also wish I had 6mm Russian WW2 forces, as not only does this scenario scream “Operation Bagration” to me, but these models would be ideal! I particularly like the various wrecked train pieces, although they do fly in the face of Jim’s ” Don’t Break It” scenario rules.
I confess to not being to keen on points systems either. I try to put costs into campaign backgrounds, so that people have something to work with. But the joy of costs is that they have very little to do with effectiveness 🙂
The Gothic train does look amazing.
Bandai do a 1/300 railway, ZZ scale
Not sure whether it’s still available.
But yes, the scenario would work nicely in a lot more periods. It could even be Boer war
As for Epic, nothing wrong with Epic, some really nice stuff in the ranges
