WW2 Thoughts

Oh, I blame the Too Fat Lardies for this. Discussion of their Chain of Command rules for WW2 skirmish games has filled the hobby pages these last few months since their release. I watched the rules demonstrations on Youtube, and was impressed by the clean flow of the games. Now I find myself looking at Peter Pig's 15mm WW2 range.

I admit, the only choice I really have now is which theater to opt for, Western Desert, Italy, or NW Europe? Decisions, decisions...

EDIT: Can anyone tell me how compatible Peter Pig figures are to Old Glory 15mm's?

The answer is, since you are going 15mm, do all three! Peter Pig is a great choice. For Western Desert Italians, I really love the Old Glory figures. The outlay for Chain of Command type forces is rather low. You can complete up a platoon in just 4 or 5 packs of Peter Pig Minis.

I think that you should watch a few WWII movies from each area and see what stirs your juices the most.

Heck, watch "Patton" and see a bit of all three.

Pick the one that excites you the most.

Thanks for your comments, gentlemen! Chris, thanks also for the recommendation to check out Old Glory. They do have some nice-looking stuff there at a reasonable price.

My first WW2 gaming involved Airfix figures and vehicles in the Western Desert. It's a theater I've always liked, and most of my terrain would suit desert locales.
