Project Spotlight: Modern Combat

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update and I know it’s long overdue.  The demands of family, real life, and a return to my hobby workbench to work on some lead miniatures, have taken me away from my plastic pursuits.  However, I’ve decided to break from the mountain of lead, buck down and re-dedicate some time to Lego wargaming for a spell.

 This time around, I’m posting the first of several “project spotlights” focusing on some of the Lego periods I’m gaming in, and the toys for each. The first spotlight focuses on modern combat. There’s tons of great stuff out there for modern minifigs and the selection keeps getting better and better all the time. The images below are show some of the figures I’m using for my “theatre” of operation. All minfigs pictured are customs done by yours truly.

 A recent discovery of “Lego Compatible” companies like Sluban, Cobi, Oxford Blocks, etc have opened up vehicle opportunities as well since I don’t possess the “skills” necessary to custom build any vehicles using actual Lego. These knock-off brick companies solve that issue for me, putting everything I need including instructions in one big box. The prices aren’t that bad either, compared to Lego box sets. I’ll feature vehicles in a future Project Spotlight.


Well that's it for this update. I'm hoping to have some more stuff to share soon enough. In the meantime, feel free to follow my blog, leave a comment or drop me a line if you have something to share.
