    Ahhh, looking like some good recommendations – thank you. I also forgot I own a copy of Song of Drums and Tomahawks, which is even a more granular set.

    Works for me! As for vehicles I do have ratings for…all Cold War and after. I have never seen ratings for WWII vehicles, although I believe they did/do exist.

    Not to take the easy route on this reply, but I think the players or GM has to determine what type of road, what type of foliage, and is the rod perfectly straight to allow a line of sight. Most modern roads I drive on in the woods have slight curves or elevations that would reduce line of sight. So it would be up to you to determine the road’s conditions I think.

    Tomorrow’s War is Force on Force for sci fi. I would grab that and Ambush Alley. AA is the original offering, and plays a bit more simply than the later FoF Modern. I’ve not seen the FoF WWII version.

    Every now and then I see copies of FOF (modern) for sale on eBay or other sites.

    I certainly would enjoy seeing those F&IW mods!

    It is a fun game…a bit quirky at times, but we are going to modify the damage dice a bit. Leave graze wounds at 5 points, make light wounds d100/4, moderate wounds d100/2, and heavy wounds as is. We kept seeing light wound causing more damage than moderate due to high die rolls for the former and low for the latter. Making the change would take some of the extremes out of it.

    This is a great forum, very friendly and helpful folks.  Welcome and enjoy the camaraderie!

    PayPal, once set up, is a great way to secure funds.  I’ve been using my account for 10+ years with zero issues.  Happy to help as well with any questions.

    I am curious about 15mm flags myself, mostly 18th and 19th Century, meaning I might be interested in 15mm flgas you offer for colonial or American Wars.

    The Marine 2002 boardgame is a good start.

    Just had a brainwave… there was a small “baggie” type boardgame from either the late 90’s or early 2000’s that I picked up in a cheap lot at a Con, and IIRC it would be perfect, just dump the hexes for inches or something. I’ll see if I can find it and see the name when I get home from work.

     

    I would be interested in learning more if you find it!!

    Tomorrow’s War kinda covers some of those aspects.  Azhanti High Lighting (the old Traveller/GDW rules) cover some of those topics as well.

    The Moongrunt stuff is awesome, slowly working my own Moongrunt project:

    I believe that Check Your 6! ticks off most of your boxes.  Altitude, pilot quality, hex based, aircraft ratings, maneuver charts for various aircraft.  Use their Jet Age rules version, and they have a full Korean War scenario book.

    A couple of months ago I was checking the old Armies Army stuff on PSC. At that time they had everything in stock. With the recent sale seemingly everything is out or nearly so. Not sure what is going on behind the scenes as since they own the line they should be able to stay on top of stock levels. I was able to grab an East German platoon yesterday at sale price.

    Wow, those are some nice comparison shots, and what a difference between the two companies. Based on the amount of cleanup TD needs, vs. the amount of time painting the PA, maybe I’ll just stick to 1/285th scale!

    As Zippy has pointed out, Wargaming Figures has the old Lyzard’s Grin/Houston ACW range. I believe the other eras went to Great Endeavours, but their website is kaput.

    A bit bummed by this actually. Both Blue Moon and BF have the starts of good ranges for the Great War, but they both have many holes, so it is difficult to dive in, even with a sale, knowing that these holes are far away from being filled.

    Regardless, thanks for the heads up, Kyote!

    It was Cold War that got me into miniatures. Saw a demo of Tacforce at Miami, by my now long time gaming friends The G Dog and Dances With Clydesdales (their monikers on the site that shall not be named). Started cutting classes to head down to the Boardwalk, a hobby shop (still going strong with boardgames and modeling, but no miniatures) in Cincinnati. Would drool over that case of CinC for some time. I started collecting West Germans. Knew nothing about their organization or weapons, so I started buying a ton of modern rules to get some framework. We gamed a lot with WRG, and as young folks do, we put WAY too many vehicles on the board and would take hours upon hours to play. This morphed into other areas of gaming, and we came back to the Cold War period (we called it moderns then) when Combined Arms came out.

    Now I have some 1/285th scale Arab-Israeli War to pint (got rid of those Bundeswehr some years ago), and I keep looking at 15mm Cold War period, but more in “colonial” settings. We the recent spate of 15mm Cold War figures out there, I do now own a platoon of Dutch, and plan to get some East Germans for some winter scenarios.

    I do have Korean War air miniatures, and had some 10mm land forces, but let those go to create some focus (which I fail at every time). I have a few Eureka North Koreans. Wouldn’t mind doing land war Korea, but that is a future project.

    A potential source of inspiration for you….

    Amazon Prime has a series titled The Last Post, about Royal Military Police in Aden in 1965. I’m only two episodes in, but it seems decent enough, and shows some interesting kit.

    I believe the factor of 25 will be the ticket, although that means that the Chippewa won’t have a gun factor.  Guess I could always give it a one!
