Or, as it will be mostly focused on my own area in the north, A Verry No'rn Ayrush Civul Warr.

This is the start of a new project I've been toying around with for a while. This post is to present some of the background and ideas to it and the divergences I've made from the "standard" narrative.

There'll be more posts in the future covering more details. Most of the campaign will be focused in and around Ulster, at least to start with!




So far I've only one unit made for it and another 3 in progress, you can find the completed unit on my latest update: https://mmcvhistory.home.blog/2020/06/30/projects-update-june-2020/

I'm sure I'll have questions in time over where to find good unit proxies as I'm not super familiar with the 20th-century ranges! Have been mostly pillaging the SCW so far.

You doing the 30's or the 70's one ?

If 30's the WWI stuff - later period is good


If 70's then Falklands stuff is good for regulars

30s for sure! Purely fictional and largely silly, no desire to delve into the heavy stuff at this time.

A very comprehensive background :). Certainly a mix of WWI, SCW and Inter-War tanks and AFVs are perfect for this sort of thing.
