Somewhere in Ookerzistan*

Once upon a time my friend and I had one of those "Ooh, shiny!" moments featuring modern skirmish gaming. Damn you Ambush Alley/Force on Force/Flying Lead/...

This lead to the purchase of some boxes of Ceasar 1/72 troops (lovely figures), some more in metal (SHQ and Combat Miniatures???) and an assortment of modern 1/72 vehicle kits...

Just part of a collection of plastic and metal figs, prepainted Dragon vehicles, Heller and Revell kits and some bring and buy finds

And then the project flatlined...

Code Blue in the wargames room, code blue!!!!

Stef had however scratchbuilt a rather large collection of buildings before this happened. And those have now changed hands as part of his clean up of the basement.

Guess I'll have to invest in a sand coloured cloth now :-)

And all I really need is a maximum 10 figures per side to get a game of Flying Lead underway... Hmmm...

Some Platoon 20's (another b&b find)  getting ready to ambush a humvee patrol

Happy gaming and painting!

* Ookerzistan: One of those Central Asian countries that always seems to be in one conflict or another, currently NATO led forces are deployed there to keep out yet another fundmentalist movement...

2 opmerkingen:

  1. That's a very nice collection. Looks like you're totally set for Ambush Alley?Force on Force (I have to admit I'm not really familiar with Flying Lead).

    1. Flying Lead is one of the many spin-offs of Ganesha Games' "Songs of Blades and Heroes" skirmish ruleset covering WW2 through modern. Including such things as Stargate and the A-Team (slightly renamed in the rulebook off course :-)


Ctrl-Alt-Del: the Day after Crisis

What better time to restart this blog than what is to me the watershed moment of the gaming year: the Crisis show by the Tin Soldiers of Ant...
