Target Locked On Sixties Soviets

Posted on April 22nd, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

The other half has broken the laptop, so I’m having to improvise with my phone, which means there may be some sellpng mistks. Anyway, for no particularly logical reason,  I decided to start painting the 1960’s Soviet aircraft for my Target Locked …

Review – Book, AFM Volume 2, Part 2, A Treatise on Soviet Operational Art

Posted on April 2nd, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

This was a truly great find by Andy Miles who kindly posted it onto the Red Storm Rising facebook page.  It’s not quite the British equivalent to the FM 100 series, it was written in 1991 from the perspective of understanding Soviet Operational Ar…

Review Models – 1/72 S&S Kraz Truck

Posted on March 25th, 2018 under , , , , , , . Posted by

First post for over a year I think, nothing earth shattering, a review of S&S’s Kraz 255.  The 7.5 ton Kraz 214 and 255 trucks provided extreme off-road logistic capacity to the Soviet and Warsaw Pact forces from 1959 through to the end o…

Fast Attack Project "FRAM can" Destroyer

Posted on March 19th, 2018 under , . Posted by

I have been looking for a Cold War era 1/700th scale destroyer model, as a target for the Soviet equipped fast attack flotilla that I glued together a couple of week ago, but without much luck. At the weekend I did some googling and found out…

Zvezda 1/100 Ural Truck

Posted on March 14th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

My local model shop had some of these on the shelves at the weekend, so I had a closer look. It was a bit expensive for AK47, as I have used cheap Maisto die cast toys for my trucks in the past, but I was very pleasantly surprised by the detail in…

Thinking outside the Box?

Posted on February 14th, 2018 under , , , . Posted by

I have been playing around with the KR Multicase storage box that I was given for my birthday, trying to work out a useful way to make the most of the two hundred 25mm x 50mm foam slots it contains. These are designed for 28mm figures, so I did th…

15mm Cold War British Bundle Bonus

Posted on January 13th, 2018 under , . Posted by

I had a really nice surprise when I opened the Team Yankee Iron Maiden bundle today. The rules supplement was as expected, perhaps better than I thought it would be, full of some really good information, scenario ideas and painting guidelines for Cold …

….about to start gaming anything related to Flames of War and it’s Cold War Gone Hot offshoot, Team Yankee. Why not? To be frank, I just can’t get my head around a 1/100th scale Chieftain with a maximum effective range of 100cm…eh? What? Bonkers. N…

An end to the “Cold War” at the Wargames Holiday Centre.

My Good Generals, here is the write up from our recent Cold War game staged here at the WHC by the chaps from the Reigate club. I have included as many photos as was deemed sensible, as I took over 100, so when you take a look through just hover your cursor over the photo to see the note for the picture.
