Hey all!

Well, on a total whim I came to Cold Wars… decided last night, came today after work!


And, after watching the Duke game, I took some photos. So come on by for a look!

Thanks for the pictures and the write ups (plus the nice comments). Those are my cataphracts above. Alas, two turns later they were all dead. C'est la Guerre!

Hey guys!

My pleasure! Bowman, those were GREAT looking figures, and the movement trays and casualty markers made the game that much prettier… those extras COUNT!

I did try to crop the pictures down to JUST be photos of the troops… I hope nobody minds being left out! But if you DO recognize a game and want to share more info, please do!

And next time you see a guy in a blue sweatshirt snapping photos with an obnoxiously bright flash, say hi!:)

Thanks again, Lord Ashram.

The pictures of "I wish I knew more about this era… French? British?" was my game played with Pete V. a WW1/ back of beyond type setting. I played the India, Figs from Copplestone. Pete played the French in tropical uniforms.

Desert ground cloths are tricky, most are just one color. but the mats used in the game are from GameMatz. There is enough variation in color with a hint of green that make it look great.
