...Dundee Wargames Club. Now I fully appreciate that this will be a pretty dull post - even by the low standards I have established - but it's important to me. And a few others.
So here's to you all - JR, Colin F, John, Lee, Ian, Tony, Billy, Dennis, George, Richard, Scott, BT, Paul J, Andy, Ricardo, Wayne and many others. Thanks for tolerating the teenage me and not putting me off this insane hobby.

I decided that my West German forces for Little Cold Wars needed some up to date (for the late 1970s...) AT weapons. The interwebnet was duly scoured for decent photos of the Milan AT missile and I set to building a couple in roughly 1/32 scale. The 'gunner' in the photos is an Airfix figure with his MG-3 carefully carved away.

This lot are part of my Little Cold Wars project and are dodgy diecast models....
...which originally looked like this!
The second GAZ has a light overspray of grey.
For the third GAZ I couldn't resist some 'parade' markings. It makes for a much more conspicuous target!

The Luftwaffe soon returned...
...in the shape of my Alpha Jet. No WarPact fighters appeared to chase it off and in went the strike.
This game not only provided us with another run through of the tank/AT/ATGM gunnery systems but also gave the revised air/counter-air rules a decent workout. To sum up, this game saw 2 WarPact tank battalions against a dug in reinforced British tank regiment. Both sides had sporadic air support. The game took under 2 hours of real time.
