    Totally forgot tp post- got my RH Figures meanwhile and they are abolutely lovely. Considering size and bulk they are somewhere in between Elhiem and Under Fire and fit nicely with both ranges. The sculpts are very detailed and the little chaps really have personalities.
    The RH website is quite the internet stoneage, but ordering worked out fine – I phoned throug my credit card number (Rolf was very helpful and also very helpful regarding questions on the range) and then I sent an email with the order.
    Casting was really good (no mould lines almost no flash) and delivery really fast – about a week from England to Austria.

    Did you check RH Models? I should get the PLO figures I ordered in the next days. I can post a review as soon as I get them. He also has Syrians and generic Arabian Infantry with soviet equip.
    Under Fire has beautiful IDF too (I posted some pictures in the FB group) and also starts to do Syrians (one squad so far)

    @PatG I’m prwetty new to this thematic and I also have no colonial warfare experience. I bought the FoF Supplement out of interest after I saw the Last King of Scotland and got hooked. but so far I have only read some Ospreys and the Supplement – just starting doing research but I gladly discuss with you as Rhodesia is also one of my prime interests.

    I think the question with PLO encounters is if in scenarios traditional aka symmetric warfare or asymetric secnario design is more apprbriate. If you look at them superficially they seem to be a “regular” military force albeit lacking in discipline and strong organisation but they also used elements of asymetric warfare like the “Young Lions” or civilists as “bodyshields”. Also they were not really fighting on territory of their own beeing as much an foreign invasor as the IDF.
    To me it seems they fall somewhere in between symetric and asymetric warfare, so maybe decide on a scenario per scenario base?

    Hi,
    finally managed to get into this new forum ๐Ÿ™‚
    Regarding FoF I have been playing WW2 in 28mm (several US, a British and a German Armies) so far but now I’m getting into “modern” settings: Lebanon 82/ 83, Cold War gone hot and the Rhodesian bushwars in 20mm.

    Beside FoF there are the usual suspects: AWI (Americans 28mm) Napoleonics (Russians 15mm), ACW (Union 28mm, Rebs 15mm), European and Asian Renaissance (TYW Imperialist 28mm, Parliament ECW 10mm, Sengoku Takeda 28mm, GNW Swedes 28mm, Medieval (Early Crusaders), Ancients (Myceneans 26mm, Ptolemaic 28mm, Carthaginan 28mm, Late Romans 28mm, Comnenian Byzanties 28mm).
    I also play the occasional WW2 naval game (USA 1:2400)
    Beside that I play SF (Tomorrow’s Wars – several 29mm Armies) Dropzone/ fleet Commander (Resistance/ UCM) and of course the classics (Warhammer FB & 40K)

    (If you notice a bias towards USA armies that’s because 2/3rds of our family are Americans and my uncle was an Officer in the US Army.
