Cold War Commander Battle Report 3 - 6 x 6 Game Challenge

I finally got around to playing another game of Cold War Commander for my 6 x 6 Game Challenge.

It has been a little while since my last game, so I probably got some rules wrong.  I added in some artillery for this game so had a few new things to learn as well.


I played the Counter Attack Scenario from the book.  The Soviet Union was defending with 1,335 points available and the US was the attacker with 2,000 points available.

Both sides would achieve a minor objective if they caused 25% casualties to the enemy and a major objective if they broke the enemy formation.






It was a fun game and came right down to the wire with the end result being very, very close.

I think I will try to use an forward artillery observer in the next game to make better use of the artillery.

Painting The Walking Dead: All out War in Black and White - Carl

Carl found his way to my paint table and I managed to get him done and as part of the black and white edition of The Walking Dead: All Out War.


I continue to use my simple process for this model.  Base colors, wash, and then highlights.  I'm not going to win any painting contests, but the models look pretty decent on the table.

Painting The Walking Dead: All Out War in Black and White - Patrick

Patrick visited my painting table recently and is now ready to head out to collect some supplies and thrash some walkers.


I continue with my simple but effective painting style.  This is a pretty good way to paint models if you are interested in getting models to the table quickly.  I think it would be pretty forgiving for a new painter as well.




Just a few more models and I'll be done with the core box.

Paints Used:
Vallejo Model Air Color
    Anthracite Grey
