One of my favorite movies growing up was Red Dawn. The remake a few years ago was absolutely horrible ... but the original is a classic. Between that and Call of Duty Modern Warfare - in which the US gets invaded by Russia, I've always want to extend my "Russia Resurgent" project into North America.
|Original Red Dawn ... the only|
Red Dawn I will acknowledge :-)
Considering all the Russian's we have laying around ... why not do a "modernize" Red Dawn type invasion scenario. My setting will be a small town in Washington state that gets hit by elements of a Russian division that have crossed the Bearing Straight and pushed through Alaska and down through Canada. This is good because I've always wanted an excuse to buy pre-assembled/painted Woodland Scenics O-Scale buildings. Specifically ...
All of these buildings are on order for me. I'll modernize them a bit and weather them as needed. I'll fill in the rest of the board with fur mats and roads as normal. The layout and scenario are not 100% in my head just yet ... but I'm sure I'll figure it out once all the cool toys show up!
In other news, my Vietnam figures have all finally shown up so I'll be sending those off to Artmaster Studio ASAP this week.
I'm also looking to host a game at some point before the July 4th weekend. Domestic duties and other stuff is making this a bit challenging ... but I'll figure something out. July 4th I have the whole week off so I'm looking forward to getting some gaming in during that week as well.
So stay tuned ... more updates to come!
