I decided to keep heading down the path of the Air Cav (something about all of those helicopters I guess), but instead of painting them as the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) I picked the Air Troop of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment – the Blackhorse Cav. The reasons for this were simple, I could paint up lots of choppers, I could paint up a supporting ACAV platoon with M113s and Sheridans, and finally the Blackhorse Cav were on the front lines in the 1980s holding the Fulda Gap. If something had happened during the days of Reagan, Thatcher, Brezhnev, Andropov and Chernenko these guys would have been up to their ears in Soviets, and as it happened fighting out these theoretical battles was how I cut my teeth with wargaming (along with Napoleonics and WW2).

I also dug out some old LOTR Rohan figures that I picked up for a long forgotten project and turned them in to a force for Saga (I am calling them the Ro-Normans or Ro-Bretons) for an intro game with Wayne. Finally I managed to play a couple of games with Warma-Hordes verses Casey and long time Warhammer opponent Reid.
It was great to spend a day gaming, but even more importantly it was nice to help the WWPD guys raise some money for a very worthy charity.
|Wayne and Mike set up for the big game|
|Mike's Strelkovy move up through the factory|
|The Sturmtigers hold the plaza|
|My T-34/85s support the advancing IS-2s - The T-34s would be routed from the field but no until we had a commanding lead on Victory Points|
|The Ro-Normans take the field (and get smashed - probably the lack of paint)|
|Kara's gun line vs Casey's Legion. Too much shooting for Casey to get his head around|
|Reid and Gordon have a game (converting them both from Warhammer)|
|Kara vs Reid, seconds after her Feat and a lot of shooting remove Molik Karn|
