Little Cold Wars. So now you know why I was painting all these North Koreans and the Great Patriotic War surplus Sturmovik and Lavochkin. I also made some new hills - they're the brown ones in the photos and roads.
In the event the scenario needs a bit of tweaking as I felt is was unsatisfactory - though all four players enjoyed it. We'll try the revised version next year but I thought you'd want to see the photos anyway. John was Col. Smith with Graham as his artillery officer. Martin and Tim led the commies.
The situation is pretty well known. Basically an under-strength US infantry battalion (1/21st) has been hurriedly flown from Japan, driven across Korea for several days and them dumped on a wet and muddy hillside which sits astride the NK route south. What could go wrong?
As usual with Little Cold Wars games the figures are 1/32, vehicles 1/50ish and aircraft 1/72. Stands are US platoons or KPA half-companies.
So exciting was the game that I kept forgetting to take photos. Above - TF Smith having dealt with the first T-34s the others begin a flanking move.
recently completed IL-2 was in the air - and supported only by a bent wire clothes hanger it flew down the road bombing and strafing. To no great effect.
