"I do one thing at a time, I do it very well, and then I move on."
Normally my mantra, but that's definitely not me at the moment.
First, I picked up a copy of the Crossfire rules, read them through, and loved what I saw. So I think these are going to be what I use to couple with the Platoon Forward solo campaign rules.
I've played Red Poppy/White Feather which works on a similar principle, and Crossfire looks even better to me. I have also decided that I want to go with a game where one stand equals one squad. So once I give Crossfire a play test, even if it doesn't work on the table as well as it looks on paper, I can still go with the simpler, more abstract Paper Tigers, my second choice, which uses one stand equals one squad and which I know from experience gives a fun game.
Second, I've primed and started painting more infantry (German at the moment), and hopefully I will soon have a full company of leg infantry ready to go.
Third, I've finally found a piece of felt of the right color that will cover my entire 6' x 4' table (until now I'd only found 6' x 3'). I've also got some additional materials for terrain (of which I will need lots for Crossfire).
Finally, I've gotten the wooden bases I'll need (I'm using 1.5" square bases for my infantry squads) and they're primed camo green and ready for mounting and flocking.
Now the key will be to get focused once again – the plan is to get that German infantry done before tackling anything else.
"I do one thing at a time... I do one thing at a time... I do one thing at a time..."
