I got some more minis completed. After years of languishing atop a bookcase, I finally got around to re-basing and finishing off some old friends. These are Heroics and Ros 6mm WWII, US and German, for western Europe. 'Tis true that HR are not as aesthetically pleasing as GHQ, but I swear they paint up quick and look fantastic on the table, they cost less than half of GHQ, and you can order them singly (vice in packs of five). These have a special place in my heart as the very first solo games I played, I played with these. I used a mix-mash of rules that I wrote up myself, borrowing heavily from Nuts!, IABSM, Force on Force, Crossfire, and BKC (all the rules I owned at that time!), and playing through several scenarios of the Lardies' "Blenneville or Bust" booklet (the batreps are posted here on the blog).
Anyway, The Commissar's latest offering, "Brigade Commander," made me think of these old troops lying unwanted, and perhaps now they've got a new least on life.
The Germans are set up the same way, pretty much identical, as my goal was to have two forces to match up equally as a whole, but vary according to the scenario.
I will look to get them on the table when I can, and Lord only knows when that will be.
