F&I Fall Four-Way Sharp Practice game

I was inspired by all the Fall foliage in North Georgia to do a French & Indian war game and came up with this scenario. It would be a meeting engagement between Colonial Rangers returning from a scout, some lost Provincial troops, a Huron war party and some returning Compaignes de la Marine. Minis ...

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

The new minis from H&R is nice and works with Adler. Even their new vehicles are worth a look. Not as nice as GHQ and 1/300 but considerably cheaper
As for terrain, this scale has soooooo many good manufacturers now. And basic scenery is cheap and relatively easy to diy.

Re: 2nd game in the 7YW Sugar Islands campaign

Not really sure what you are asking? We use 15mm minis to represent individual figures. SP ground scale is really closer to 1/100 and 15mm so that size mini works quite well.

Re: Russian naval troops

That's what I use. They can have additional Smgs and auto rifles but they really are green troops. If you feel they should be tougher allow them to ignore a couple of shock points for close combat.

Re: Grabow Feb 45 6mm IABSM game

It was a nice change of pace from the Normandy games. I really like the way IABSM works with 6mm.

Grabow Feb 45 6mm IABSM game

Inspired by issue 184 of After the Battle magazine, I decided to do a late war game based on actions in one of the Oder Bridgeheads in Feb, 1945. It allowed me to try some loaded-for-bear SS foot units and was a change of pace from the Normandy kick I was on. The Soviet 49th Gds Tank Brigade (with T...
