Bit of a fun series of pictures rather than from a game.

Nice photos … that Sagger operator must be punching the air, or more probably legging it before the other Chieftain gets a bead on him.

Great photos.
When I start painting my US vs Russians 1980ish figures,
I now feel the need to add some British.
Damn, more money to spend with Empress. lol
(That's not a bad thing, just have to find more time to paint.)

Well, I leave for a couple weeks vacation, and you go on a painting spree....

Well done on all of it.  Well except for the Soviet win, that is... ;D

I used to do that but got lazy and bought some ready made stuff but the same material.

Know how you feel. Bought some commercial stuff you just scrunch up and glue in place. Works a treat though.

Lovely work! :-* Ever thought about commissioning the Milan turret for the Spartan? Mid to late eighties IIRC but would be a nice addition to the range.

Lets just say its a possibility along with other variants. Its just fitting all this stuff into busy schedules and we are way behind with releases across the ranges as we wait for bits to be done.  ;)

Finally as promised some pictures of the recent 1980 Cold War game.

Simple game with the Soviet VDV ordered to push off the other side of the table in order to capture an airfield. BAOR defence force originally in place including some SAS were unable to hold them back and an infantry platoon plus supports arrived but held the steam roller back for a few moves but the VDV punched through.

Most of the reinforcements were generated by the Random Effects Chart and the Soviets had more luck with the rolls than the Brits. Both sides failed to get artillery support and the Brits got no tanks although did get one pass from a Harrier, whoosh BANG!!!

Great fun and here are some pictures.

The light greay smoke on the tanks is for light hits, the black burning for destroyed.

The big white smoke for smoke screens that the Brits adopted to try and hide as the Soviets got very close.
