Forming Armies for Modern Spearhead

Over the last week or so I thought it time I wrote a couple of short articles on some Cold War gaming topics. Specifically on forming brigade sized formations for use with Modern Spearhead and the Scenario Generation System.

Most of my gaming occurs during an evening time slot and over the years we have played a large number of Spearhead and Modern Spearhead games. As such the scenario system is designed to produced reinforced brigade actions playable in an evening. However, it’s often difficult to know where to start when organising a suitable army.

In a previous post I outlined a sample Soviet list so in the latest two posts I look at NATO armies. First up was the Cold War French drawing elements from a French Armoured Division. More recently I’ve considered a West German Panzer Grenadier Brigade. In each article I provide a brief outline and both a Defend List and an Attack List for use with the Scenario Generation System.

Hopefully some of you will find something of interest in either or both articles. They may even encourage you to get those models out…
