"Finally this week we are also annoucing that Battlegroup NORTHAG, the Cold War version of our popular WW2 rules, will become a reality and design and development work begins this summer. We dont have a release date as yet but keep an eye on the Ironfist Publishing page for more updates!
So this week its all 1980s and not one fashion faux pas in sight... till Will arrives!"

As a matter of interest will this be very specifically the year 1980 as per the cover or actually 1980's in general?

Just wondering in respect of vehicles available etc.

PS - I don't suppose you could run off some army lists for the Falklands whilst you're at it! :beg:

As I said on Facebook page early 80's or before, SLR era, would be my preference. A bit later would perhaps attract some of the Team Yankee crowd though.

It's party time at Bonkle manor!! 85-86 would be my preference but the way the army lists work I'm sure there will be loads of leeway to upgrade vehicles and so varying the year to cover a large portion of the 80's. Battlegroup does cold war...what could be better?

Regards, Bonklebrain. :thumbsup:

Late 80's is my preference, but I'll settle for late..err all the 80's.

Glad to help with proof-reading, plus other bits, if you need any.

It will be nice to see a good rule set for this and Piers and Warwick will do just that. I do not game anything past WW2,and when i did i gamed the cold war way back in 1/300th so i will be giving this a miss,but it will be a welcome rule set for the cold war gaming community :thumbsup:

Hi

There is a danger is trying to do to much, "Jack of all Trades, Master of none". There is a loyal following of WWII Gamers awaiting more detail for that period.

A must have - like every BG book! Personally, think a 1983 "Able Archer" baseline scenario with down-/upgrade options to move the setting back/forward some 5-10yrs would be very cool. Am also curious to see how you handle NBC. Soviets (using FM 100-2) and Swiss (OB 1981) are already rolling off the production line in good numbers... reminds me I should first have finished those Bagration Germans and Soviets...

Well the Cold War book doesn't make any difference to the WWII releases.
