Malayan Emergency 28mm

I spotted these the other day and thought they looked really nice. At the risk of stating the obvious, I really fancy doing this in 28mm as the figures are great and the number needed for a skirmish level game relatively small, perhaps a dozen a side at the most.


I have quite a bit of useable jungle terrain and at least a couple of possible sets of rules, so could possibly justify it as a permissable project under the rules of engagement I set myself at the start of the year, i.e. no new projects.

You could do lots of really interesting scenarios from jungle patrols, to ambushes, to hearts and minds operations, to convoys, to defensive actions, to helicopter insertions and so on. There's also a lot of potential for some good terrain and vehicle modelling including jungle huts, boats, helicopters and other interesting things. They even do a 1/56th scale Saracen!

I'll have to have a serious think and crunch some numbers...
