    I'm looking at Axis and Allies Mini

      Axis and Allies is great. Because after about 3 or 4 days of intense stardigies and tacitics, when you win, its hilarous to see your friend(s) get all ma and throw stuff around..unless its my house
      I am a simple man. I am by no means smarter than the average man. I am average...yet genius.

        If I had time, money and any talent at painting I would say Flames of War, I bought rulebook and the Afrika Korps book and I like the way the rules are set up but I just don't have that kind of time to commit to it..... Someday

          I have always been partial to Napoleonics. I used to play Empire 3 back in the 80's. Now my minis are sitting in the garage collecting dust. I am thinking about EBaying them off.

              Back in the days when I had the time and the capability

              1/300 'Ultra Modern' using 'Challenger' (good for small engagements) and 'Wargame Research Group' (simpler and so better for the larger battles) rulesets was a personal favourite. I think it was the fact that one was speculating about warfare rather than refighting old battles that made it attractive.

              I did also enjoy other periods too (WW2 1/300 and 25mm, Napoleonic 25mm, Medieval 15mm, amongst others).

                Me and my dad play Take Cover! for 20mm:1/72 WWII. I'd like to find a good company/battalion level game.

                Twilight 2000? That sounds really interesting!

                  Take Cover! is a good game... I know the guy who wrote it.

                  If you are into 20mm gaming check out The Guild Forum...

                      Yup... I know how you feel. I have just taken the background and exploited it for my wargamming needs!

                        Well it'd make an awesome hypothetical WW3 game

                            Post some pics - maybe we can save you the EBay comission ... & I am serious... can always use more minis esp 15 or 10 mm.

                              Challenger... that brings back some memories... that and Tractics (caculate everything but the effect of the fly the shell hit on the way down range) . I just took a bunch of 1/285 WWII armor off a friend (to keep him from ebaying them) and he had 75-100 mixed peices of modern armor in there.. I am halfway tempted to check on EBay and see if I can find a copy
