Really interesting CD2 got me back into actual wargaming after a 10yr break into my 20s.

We really liked it (hated CDIII when it came out just too complicated).

Frank Chadwick and Greg Novak could certainly write a set of rules :D

Yes sorry I re-read my post and realised I`d wandered off topic :D (getting old and I`ve got the flu) - my miss-type :oops:

We played a fair bit of Spearhead too (when it first came out), to be honest it plays a couple of levels above where we enjoy - we prefer platoon/Company/battalion level to divisional/brigade level games, I`m just not that tactically aware when looking at that larger picture :oops:

With you on that one... kids at our school balls/formals (not sure what you call them) wanted 'dub step'... not sure it qualified for the title 'music'. But enough of that.. I may just have unwittingly offended multiple people.. apologies... and back to the wargaming.

Out of interest what made you want to try and adapt Spearhead for 20mm? Just had the toys in that scale already and fancied giving the rules a go?

I think you're going the right way though, leave the core rules as they are instead of trying to get a square peg to fit into a round hole. If you find yourself playing the rules a lot and liking them you can always get new armies in a smaller scale.

Robin, I can't see many who frequent this forum being into the Techno, House, Garage or Ootside Netty types of music...but I may be wrong!! :lol:
