Krasnovia

I am planning some structure to my 15mm generic modern skirmish gaming.

I was inspired by several things such as:
A Very British Civil War
Twighlight:2000
AK-47
Lebanon
Yugoslavian Wars
Lybia
Somalia
Post WW I Europe

So The Republic of Krasnovia is born! The name comes from the fictitious nation used by the US Military to represent a Soviet trained army for use during training exercises. It featured heavily in training at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin, CA.

My Krasnovia is a mess. Lots of political, ethnic, religious, and other factions fighting for control of key locations. Most are focused around the capital, but some others will be included.

I will have a latter post with some of the locations and factions. Your feedback is always welcome.
I am planning on a simple association map instead of any specific layout. Easier to track a campaign this way.

The rules will be Flying Lead (SOBH) for individuals and Force on Force for any squad/team engagements.

The figures will be 15mm from several sources:
Peter Pig
Rebel Minis
Khurasan
The Scene
Blaze Away
QRF
GZG

Some of these will do double duty in my future sci-fi plans.


Some of the key areas/buildings are listed below.
