Re: Munin's First Attempt At WW2 Vehicles

I love this so much! Such a clever and well executed idea. I get stuck into a kit and forget all about things like this until the end, and it then comes down to a shrug and an "oops"

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Yeah I have to say it feels like I joined this hobby at a good time! Also fun getting to discover stuff like 6mm that others have been using for ages but it is all brand new to me! Sometimes being new in a hobby can be rather good!

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

I take your point, at this point I'm looking for shermans, churchills, StuGs maybe Panzer 3 & 4, which they sadly don't have yet. Although when it comes to Russians I think I may use some of their stuff to add some variety and support them. Contrarius - interesting take on it, I've gone the other wa...

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Finished off the first batch of 6mm British troops. Completely forgot to order PIATs from Baccus so will be visiting them again soon! Four platoons, with 2in mortars (no PIATs yet) and Five Big men. https://nottherivercottage.blogspot.com/2019/09/6mm-part-2.html https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VynM4U9nuv...

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

The Baccus vehicles are a bit of a question mark for me, I'm not sure about committing to them and then having to wait for the variety to improve. I'm thinking I'll just go with GHQ vehicles, saves the wait.
2D6 stuff looks good but again - depends how quickly the range fills out.

Re: Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Thank you! I've got a few samples of napoleonics from Baccus so may well mix in some Adler cavalry, I've heard the Adler Cavalry is rather good!

Thanks for pointing out the 2D6 site - one to watch as the range expands!

Starting in 6mm (WW2)

Having been swayed (indirectly!) by various online personalities I have decided to plunge into 6mm IABSM. Got the first batch of troops from Baccus a wee while ago and finally got some time to start working on them. Still a work in progress, but so far they are nowhere near as tricky as I first imag...

Re: CoC 28mm Panzer IV

Lovely work, as always, and an even better introduction to the work! Gave me a chuckle on a tired Wednesday morning. Me being tired rather than the morning itself.

Re: Modern COC

In the 2014 Summer Special there is an article on "Big CoC in Africa" which I believe covers more modern equipment and could fit quite well with your cold war period. It may well need some tweaking to get exactly what you are looking for but is probably worth a look. They got all their info on rules...
