I have recently been in contact with a former member of the Grimsby Wargaming Society, Rob,who expressed a wish to get back in to gaming. Rob had put together a very nice 6mm Cold War French force and wanted to give the Cold War Commander ruleset ago. As Rob had never played CWC before I offered to referee and help him with the rules and Andy B would provide his Soviet opposition. Rob's units are GHQ and CnC models, the Soviets are Heroics and Ros, the terrain was mine and the clubs.
All in all a very enjoyable game. The French initially gave as good as they got, but the fragility of the lighter French armor meant they struggled to slug it out with the Soviets. With the bulk of the French infantry ensconced in one of the towns and the Soviets poised to put in a two pronged assault we called it as an overall Soviet victory.

Better late than never some pictures from last years Crisis point game. This proved to be the largest game yet with about 300 square feet of playing area. Using the Mat o War cloths from the Grimsby Wargames Society we were able to cover the whole table, which tied everything together very nicely.
