Since I found the excellent Hakuna Matata Wars blog written by Just Jack of the BlackHawkHet blog, I have been deeply, deeply, inspired by the imagi-nation conflict between Hakuna and Matata to create my own imagi-nations and pit them against each other in some early Cold War wranglings.
I've decided what each side will have using Oddzial Osmy 3mm figures:
British supplied force:With 1 pack of each of the above and an extra pack of T55s that would be £33 from Magister Militum and give me enough mini's to run battalion level games. As a note, I know that the aircraft I've chosen were retired before the vehicles came into use, but I like them!
Tanks - Conqueror
APC - Saracen
Recce - Saladin
Infantry - British WW2
Aircraft - Mosquito (will use as Tsetse variant - has 6pdr QF cannon)
Soviet supplied force:
Tanks - T55
APC - BTR-152
Recce - PT76
Infantry - Soviet WW2
Aircraft - PE-2
Campaign rules and imagi-nation generation will be courtesy of Not Just a Brush War and combat rules would be FiveCore Company Command both by Nordic Weasel Games. I'll also try IABSM to get a comparison between the two
Having typed all this out, I'm now even more inspired to place the order and get this idea moving. The only things holding me back now are:
a) not sure I can afford it before I get paid
b) how on earth will I come with names as great as Hakuna and Matata??
