QRF Russian T-80 BV with Explosive Reactive Armor   4 comments

One of my miniature dreams is to collect several modern (1980s +) armies with the goal of having a company or skirmish level battle.  I am not sure on which rule set would be the most viable.  I like FOW because I know the rules and it can be applied to modern vehicles.  However, I do have Force on Force and some modern forces already based for that game.  Plus there are probably a number of alternatives.  These are my first modern Russian miniatures.  I bought the T80 with ERA to compliment the Abrams tanks that I already have.

Force on Force Afghan War miniatures   Leave a comment

Unfortunately, I have been neglecting this site the last couple months, but I have a few updates today. 

I orginally started collecting modern miniatures to use in a modified Flames of War ruleset, but with the update and release of the Ambush Alley ruleset in the form of Force on Force I thought I would re-base my USMC miniatures for the FoF ruleset. The USMC figures are all Peter Pig including the HUMVEE. I am not impressed with my weathering of the HUMVEE so I wont show any closeups. I think it is too dark of a mud.
