I’ve finally received my GHQ order for Cold War Commander : the better part of a circa 1985 French combined arms brigade. Meanwhile, I’ve just finished painting and basing a few leftover Heroics & Ross minis, that had been sitting in my pile of lead for ages in teh vain hope of taking part in a Spearhead game. I’m not really happy with them as I’ve painted them, but let’s be honest, it’s hard to make details pop out on this brand’s minis. They are good value for money, but well, a far cry from IWM’s standards. They will however add a few options to coming BKC games, and I think Russians will find their new AA units somewhat useful.
Loads of German recon (as if they really needed them given the quality of their command *chuckles*). Say, some SdKfz 222, 232 and a command vehicle whose name I forgot which will come in handy :
Some Russian light tanks (2 BT5, 1 T26A and a brand new T60… though the stats are decent for the BTs in BKC, the quality of their command will elave them somewhat underpowered whan facing the Panzers )
Some Russian artillery and GAZ trucks (I think they must be a 45 mm AT and a 122 mm howitzer ) under the protection of a couple of quad MGed GAZ AAA.
