Basically, my Finnish Army project - while it has a long way to go - is pretty much planned out and so I have been mulling over what I might like to do when it's eventually finished. I'm planning well ahead because one of the issues I identified with my first experience of building a wargame themed project was the amount of research I need to do to do the thing properly. (I've made a lot of mistakes and had a few false starts with my Finnish project.)
Anyway, I had a few vague ideas but nothing really grabbed me 100%. I vaguely fancied an Inter-Wars project, and I sort of liked some of the 'British Civil War' fantasy rules that are knocking about and I have enjoyed reading about the Spanish Civil War...But then all these ideas came sharply into focus and amalgamated this very morning when I was absentmindedly perusing the Minairons Miniatures blog...
They have started doing markings for some of their kits for a hypothetical Scottish Republic!
I'll have to do some more reading - I'd like to know what game rules they are basing this idea on, or whether it could be worked into other 'British Civil War' rules - but to will give me a chance to build some of Minairons wonderful inter-war designed tankettes, so that's great!
Update: I just saw that Minairons mention the use of the VBCW ('Very British Civil War') rules in conjunction with their 'Scottish Republic' themed models.
Long Live the Republic!
