CHOCOLATE & CIGARETTES




Sorry guys I have not been doing much on the hobby front for a long time, anyway I have gotten my mojo back and have picked up the NUTS rule set from 2 hour wargames  the rules are for WW2 games but can be used for other periods, the most interesting part of the rules for me is Chocolate and Cigarettes it brings elements of RPGs to your games by using the same group of soldiers for your missions and upgrading them as time goes by, here's my section of Anti Treaty troops I will be using for my first campaign.
