I wanted to play a game of soldiers just for fun. I broke out some old rules, wiped off the dust and threw some dice.

RULES!!! We want to know the rules you used.

Cool looking, and definitely Old School. Well done.

Love it!

Looks like one of my first tables when I was in my early teens.

Thank the plastic lords for Airfix 1/72 figures, just could never get the paint to stick.

Atlantic plastic is old school. Not as old school as Airfix, but now I'm dating myself!

Brilliant. Reminds me of the first miniatures games I ever played.

Love the shot, HandL! That looks like my current games, but yours is better looking!

The first miniature game I played was when I was 10. Buddy and I lined up our WWII 1/72 plastics and tossed rubber balls at each other's forces. Played those 'rules' many many times. That was old old school. ;-)

Old school is cool! 1/72 plastics are cool! Gaming with simple rules is cool! A nice table, nice figures and an interesting scenario are much better than most rules sets out there. Fun is the name of the game.
