Back in March 2010 I embarked on a year long Cold War Hot project. In fact it was meant to be over by August 2010 (so could be better described as a 6 month project) when I would hopefully organise a big game and would use all the stuff I had prepared.
In the end we played our “Big Game” in November, after the Australian Federal election messed with our original date so it turned into a 9 month project….. As things progressed I found out more and more about the way the Soviets put their forces together and had more and more thoughts about how I’d like to wargame that. You can see where all this is leading – I ended up “needing” more and more stuff and my Soviets began to turn to my next neverending project….aaarrgh!!!
But things have a funny way of turning out. I met Simon, and ended up buying a fair amount of unpainted figures and vehicles off him – he had contacts overseas that were selling stuff, which I was able to pick up and I ended up with some things that I have always wanted, other things which I hardly knew existed and even more things than I actually could have imagined.
Anyway – back to now. I’m very pleased with my Soviet output in 2010 – which really has laid the groundwork for what I’d like to achieve in 2011 (more on that later).
So to finish off my review of 2010 for the Soviets – here are all the Soviet vehicles I completed in 2010.
