Neil Thomas Moderns Game

I played a Cold War Nato/Warsaw Pact game yesterday with Anthony who was keen to try out Neil Thomas inspired Modern Rules with his collection of 54mm moderns. These are mostly Esci 1/35th, plus 1/43rd tanks and other vehicles with the occasional 1/50th vehicle.

We played down the length of a 10 foot x 4.5 foot table. The rules seemed to work while, although as the Warsaw pact I was outgunned with T-55s against Chieftans!

Some Experimental painting

I have not played any 54mm games recently but have been doing some planning for games and this includes looking into using Neil Thomas’s Napoleonic Rules for Napoleonics and also starting a 54mm ECW collection to initially use with File Leader.

Some test painting can be seen here:

I have also been casting and assembling more troops for the German Little Wars army to oppose my British. One unit of germans is done and I have half-way through assembling a unit of Bavarians, a unit of Jaegers and 3 gun crews. They should soon be ready for some winter painting sessions.
