Frogs at Cold Wars 2010

After I posted the pictures of my new frogs with slingshots, some folks on the TMP GASLIGHT list started talking about other sources of frogs.  I am reposting some pictures from the frog game I ran at Cold Wars using both my frogs and Chris’ frogs.

The theme of Cold Wars was South American wars of liberation.  Since Chris’ paints his frogs in brightly colored schemes, as a joke, I submitted this as a theme game.  It actually made it into the PEL that way!

In the picture below you can see a scratch-built snail tank.  You can also see Chris’ killer bee unit at the top left of the picture.

Below you can see a close assault by my North American frogs on his South American snail tank.  In the next turn, the snail was dad and had fallen over.  A hurrah went down the North American battle line!

And finally in this picture you can see the North American dragon fly unit engaging a South American heavy cavalry unit.
