The latest additions to my 6mm (1/300th) Cold War forces.

I’ve been busy in the shed expanding my Cold War micro armour collection in preparation for a multiplayer game of 5core: Brigade Commander that I am planning.

6mm US

First up with have a mix of US Army vehicles: A Command stand and a company of M1A1s plus extra ATGM, mortars and Vulcan AA cannons mounted on the ubiquitous M113 chassis.

6mm Warthog

To give the US some air support I painted up a A10 Thunderbolt II aka The Warthog. Probably THE close air support aircraft for the Cold War period.

6mm Harrier

For the Brits I have done a Harrier GR3, for a change I decided to do it in the winter camo scheme often seen sported during deployments to Norway.

6mm jaguar

Also for the Brits I’ve painted up a SEPECAT Jaguar, one of my favourite Cold War era jets.

All the models are from Heroics and Ros apart from the infantry that are from Irregular.

  1. Nice selection, Pete! I like the M1s!

  2. Dave says:

    Good stuff Pete. I will be keen to see how it works out.

  3. Marvin says:

    Love the jets in particular, with possibly the Jaguar my favourite of the bunch.

  4. Looking great, I do like the Warthog…probably one of my favourite post WW2 planes that and the A6 and the Tomcat.

    • Pete S/ SP says:

      Thanks. Hard to pick a favourite post war jet- my taste runs to the earlier era but the Warthog is just too much of an expression of a brutal aesthetic not to love.



  5. The Jets are cool man!!

  6. Great stuff that brings back memories Pete! I fired the Vulcan in training (talk about ammo consumption), and it was a very brief hoot. The A-10 firing its Gatling gun overhead at a range is another fine memory. Ok, really loud, WAAAAAAAAAAAAP. The Fairchild A-10 is beloved by the Army,and the USAF always wants to ditch it. Love your work here, hope to see your game soon!
