A blog intended to help focus my sporadic wargaming & miniature painting endeavours...

Here is the first batch of new reinforcements for my 15mm-scale 1980s IDF force - a couple more sniper teams, a Forward Observer (FO), a .50cal HMG team, & a Military Working Dog (MWD) team. The FO will be handy for allowing the use of off-table artillery/air strikes. I drilled into the figure's radio pack to insert a tiny section of wire as an aerial, to help him stand-out more on the tabletop. As this was a success, I'll be doing the same thing to the existing RTOs on my commander bases. As Crossfire rules for MWD teams, I'm considering something like their presence automatically prevents friendly figures being ambushed when they enter a terrain feature containing Hidden enemies. They could also confer a +1 bonus in assaults. Not sure about allowing them a chance of detecting minefields/IEDs - MWDs probably aren't so good at this in a full-on combat situation.
