Cold Wars 1965-95

Most of my wargamming is during the Black Powder era. However, I do have an extensive collection of other time periods. Unfortunately, they are all in storage back in Canada. Update as of September 24, 2013, my rules for FIREPOWER game were chewed up by mice! They used the damm cards as nesting for their homes. Consequently I will have to invest in Cold War 1986 from Osprey publishing in order to have rules for my late 20th century games. All my other sets seem fine.
