Hi all

About two months ago I played Sabre Squadron game and here is the battle report, which I have added it to my site. It was a while after the game that I wrote report so the details are a little hazy and as the game got more exciting I forgot to take pictures.

It was a not so classic encounter of Soviet Naval infantry defending vs South African Mechanised forces. A very good game and our first attempt at an Attack-defence game, which went very smoothly. All the figures are 6mm of course

The link is here

and some photos of the game.

I have almost finished another battle report of a more recent game and I just need to edit the photos so that should be in the next week or two.

Thanks for sharing, looks great :)
How long did it take you from start to finish?

Hello, I have some French (1960ish and 1980sh ) minis for a WWIII in Europe. Do the rules include lists for them?

Hi foxbat,
There are data for a range of French equipment from the AMX13/75 to the Leclerc on the Main Datasheet on the website:

There are some basic organisations for the French in the 1980s on the Forum:

Good Lord man how big was that table? It all looks great!

Personally a fan of 15mm/100 scale, but you cant beat 285 for what you can put On the board in regard to numbers. Especailly if short on gaming space.
