I called in to see Alan in Tradgardland last week. As arranged I had taken the kit to stage a modest Little Cold Wars game. Soon the toys were set out on the floor and battle commenced. Alan was keen to 'experience' the game's mechanisms and had requested a role which involved very little decision making so he had command of a dug in US Mechanised Infantry Company with a supporting platoon of M-60A1 tanks. I led the attacking Warpact Motor Rifle Battalion in their BMPs, complete with mortar battery and an attached company of T-55. Above can be seen the dismounted assault going in with the tanks laying down smoke.
