Re: T2K 4E Character Sheets (fillable)

Nicely done! I am going to start right off using this one instead of writing them.

Re: Books

Somewhere I still have my SMCT (Soldier's Manual of Common Tasks, aka "Smart Book") from 1987... with my notes from BT still in it. I also have my 3rd party "Soldier's Handbook" from then, and somehow wound up with a late 90's version, as well. It covers customs and courtesies, uniforms, and much o...

Re: Books

Also, Osprey publishing books don't count we all (should) have loads of those. Agreed. I left dozens of those on the shelf. Not even worth it, LOL. Probably my main T:2k reference books from way back when would be 'The Modern British Army' by Terry Gander, 'Armies of NATO's Central Front' by David ...

More photos

Here are a couple more pics. If I get around to it (or there's more interest than I expect) I'll also do photos of some of my books on vehicles, improvised munitions, and/or historical references for the period (or even some of my uniforms).

Books

So what's everyone using for references? I have a pretty extensive (and expensive!) library, much of which dates back to the 1980's and 1990's, including a bunch in Russian (yes, I can read them - courtesy of almost two years at the Defense Language Institute). I don't have nearly as many as I used ...

Re: Miniatures

@cypher226, Empress offers 28mm head sprues separately for both US and USSR. Might be worth looking into for your Rhodesian cavalry conversions. Examples below:

Re: Miniatures

Thanks, Doc! I took a quick look at those and did some searching online. As for figures, I like both the Under Fire and Mongrel miniatures, but I think you're right about them not being compatible so I will have to look closer into their ranges (I tend to prefer the more realistic ones, so probably ...

Re: Miniatures

I never liked 20mm and smaller scale figures. I am looking for good cold war period 28mm figures these days, but there don't seem to be many out there. Most studios appear to skip straight from Vietnam to the Global War on Terror, and it seems hard to find anything from the 80's or 90's. I expect ve...

Re: Vehicles, kit , etc

Did anyone else get disappointed when the "real" M1A2 Abrams _didn't_ get a self loading gun, or the G-11 (bullpup) not getting adopted by NATO? Also later on finding myself as gunner of a M2A1 BFV, I expected a few more advancements. I have to find my old books. Yeah, +1. I spent 1989-2012 in the ...

Re: So Glad Its Back But....

A dedicated and active forum (where the so-called grognards are actively embracing the new version) for the game has quite detailed and accurate information concerns OOB and divisional placements in various theaters of the world. I hope, as you do, that such inaccuracies are kept to a minimum at th...
