Dreamblade Repainted

Hundvig Fezian is not a real big fan of pre-painted minis, and he positively despises randomly-packed "collectable" ones - so why is he writing this article?

I'm going to start with GHQ NATO vs. Russians and i'd like to acquire a set of rules that are not heavy with detail, and will allow 1:1 battles. Tank oriented as much as possible, as I won't buy infantry to begin with.

Thanks in advance.

Seven Days to the Rhine. I play in 15mm and it's a hoot. You do need markers though and that could hinder the look of 1/285.

I love Fistful of Tows 3. I often teahc the game with just tanks and AT guns and it plays great. Then you can add in all the fun chrome – infantry, artillery, air etc.

Plus it covers everthign from WW1 to almost the present day and all the stats and army lists are included.

I just picked up FFT3 and will be trying my first game next week. Note it is written for 5 to 1 but can be played 1 to 1.

Others that I have played and like are Fields of Fire, and Saber Squadron

Seven Days to the Rhine is on my list of ones to try.

Team Yankee could be a good choice and should be easy to find other players. It's officially for 15mm scale but actually looks better (less crowded) in 1/285.

Does the Team Yankee WW III rulebook have cards that I can copy. I'd like to do this in 1/285 scale, but i'd rather not have to shell out for Russian and U.S. cards.

Yes the rule book has card images and lists for the basic US and Soviet forces in it. So you can play with just the rulebook.

I will play Team Yankee. It's a good game.
FFT3 is my preference of the two.

Thanks for all of your replies.

FFT is the obvious best choice. It is great for Tanks but bad for infantry battles
