Hmmm very interesting! We played a lot of TW2K in the day. I had those 20mms plastic NATO paratrooper figures.
This thread has got me looking at it again. Maybe 15mms this time though.

Interesting stuff, though from posts here Mike Bravo is MIA.

I am working on some of the Under Fire figures mentioned at the moment (Soviet, DDR, Bundeswehr).

Hello all, just thought I would put the word out, am working on a two part article on "Paint Schemes of the Third World War", the NATO half is up and it has value to ALL miniatures gamers. Plus, I'd welcome advice/errata/corrections and the like.

Interesting read, thanks.

The colour matches are especially useful.

Choosing the base schemes is difficult, as you point out GDW were writing about stuff ten plus years in the future. If you compare the colour plates with the contemporary Osprey Vanguard they are very similar.

I am using paint schemes from the end of the Cold War (Tankograd Keyflight '89 for BAOR and Bold Sparrow '89 for Bundeswehr) and the Osprey books of the late eighties (Tank War: Central Front, NATO, Warsaw Pact and Soviet Armies "Today").

I also have the Tankograd Berlin Infantry Brigade book.

The Bold Sparrow book shows some interesting field camouflage patterns (which may or may not be mud).

British vehicles might be base green, the camouflage pattern does not seem to have been applied to all vehicles. There are forum members who will have recollections of that period.

Hi there,

We're featuring an article on Twilight:2000 as a PA setting in an upcoming issue but we'd love more on the idea of Cold War Gone Hot gaming - if either of you gents fancied getting in touch and putting something together for us, please PM me.
May your dice always roll true!

Great blog post Ultra. Looking forward  to seeing your under fire mins painted up.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

Two new posts after a bit of a hiatus in July! We have a 20mm army by one of our readers which is inspirational, to say the least. The second is an article on the main theatre of the conventional phase of the Twilight War, and it's chock full of scenario ideas.
