What rules are you using? I was thinking IABSM or FFOT would work, I have both and that is about the scale I want to have things.

Also what figures are you using? I am torn between 10mm and 15mm. Either is fine really.

I've only done a little Korean War, skirmish level in 28mm using the NUTS Korean War supplement. I used WW2 US soldiers in Winter Great coats or normal figures (differences are not distinguishable), and Koreans from First Corps. A platoon per side plus a few vehicles at most.

I have played several Korean war scenarios using Crossfire. I was very pleased with the games and will certainly use Crossfire again.

I'm using Cold War Commander with 10mm.

No End In Sight or Fivecore Company Command would be perfect.

Are there mods for Crossfire somewhere?

Don't think you'd need any modes for using "Crossfire" for Korea (I haven't) as it is so close to the WWII time period the rules were written for, as well as no new weapons used. I made a few minor changes for both the North Korean and Chinese command/morale based on the rule's existing Soviet's.

You can find the "Crossfire" support group at the web site which has nearly 1,400 members and is active where you'll find lots of help with any questions you might have.

Cold War Commander :

I'm using All Hell Let Loose, a WW2 ruleset and 6mm figures. I will be using WW2 Russians in winter clothing for the Chinese and British marines for the Glosters, figures by Adler miniatures.
